History[edit] The Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Greek Church in the Greek quarter in Vienna, late 19th century The oldest Greek dominated neighborhood outside of Greece were probably the Fener in Istanbul or the Ash Shatibi in Alexandria. For many centuries in Vienna existed the Griechenviertel (Greek quarter) in the Innere Stadt (inner town). Later the Greek community moved to other newer quarters. A traditional Austrian restaurant there is called Griechenbeisl (Greek tavern) and a street Griechengasse (Greek lane).

Greeks in Syracuse, New York Greeks in Omaha, Nebraska History of the Greek Americans in Metro Detroit In Australia[edit] The term Greektown is not widely used in Australia, even in areas with comparatively high levels of Greek concentration. In the 1860s, a shanty town referred to as Greektown was established at Tambaroora near Bathurst in New South Wales.[4] and there is the Greek Precinct, Melbourne In the United Kingdom[edit] Palmers Green, London Many Greeks reside in Wood Green, Harringay and Palmers Green, the latter harbouring the largest community of Greek-Cypriots outside Cyprus, resulting in these areas bearing local nicknames whereby the Green is replaced by Greek – as in Greek Lanes and Palmers Greek.[5][6][7] Although in recent years, most of London's Greek and Greek-Cypriot population resides in Southgate. Bayswater is also home to a substantial Greek community. The Saint Sophia Cathedral, situated on Moscow road was built in 1882, and is a grade I listed building.
