It identifies three areas with large concentrations of Senegalese people: the enclave in Harlem called “Little Senegal” or “ Little Africa”; the enclave “Fuuta Town” in Brooklyn, which comprises a majority of Haal Pulaar, predominantly from Senegal who are living with co-ethnics from Mauritania, Mali, and Guinea; and the Bronx, where a Senegalese community is now established.
