lol thats a myth.. a very dumb one at that
NYC population of 8.2million= 9% Puerto Rican = about 760,000 probably less
PR population of 3.7million= 94% Puerto Rican = about 3.3million

I thought the population of NYC is now at 8.5 million?

Maybe they are taking into account the whole Tri-State area as opposed to just NYC?

Because cities just outside of NYC such as Newark, Jersey City, Long Island, Westchester County, Bridgeport, etc have sizable Puerto Rican populations as well.

Baltimore doesn't really have a large Hispanic population. I would say central PA has a larger presence that Baltimore, especially places like Reading, Allentown, Harrisburg, York, Lebanon Pa.

+1. I live in Patterson Park and there is a very robust Hispanic population here. In fact, I think I hear Spanish spoken on my block more often than I hear English. I like living in such a diverse neighborhood - it's nice.

You're kidding, right?

This is a really old post, by the way.

Your best bet is southeast Baltimore. Hispanics are real interspread in southeast Baltimore, especially Highlandtown, which is like 30-40% Hispanic, that neighborhood is basically the center of Baltimore's Hispanic community, and has a heavily diverse Hispanic population, Mexicans, Salvadorans, Dominicans, Puerto Ricans, Hondurans among others.

Closer to Downtown Baltimore in neighborhoods like Fells Point and Butchers Hill most Hispanics are Central American like Hondurans, Salvadorans, Mexicans, and Guatemalans, though these neighborhoods are facing some gentrification.

The area bounded by Haven Street (west) and Merritt Boulevard (east) , and Holabird Avenue (south) and Pulaski Highway (north) , i imagine has the highest concentration of Puerto Ricans in the Baltimore area (and possibly the state of Maryland), in neighborhoods like Odonnell Heights and Greektown, though these neighborhoods also have mildly diverse Hispanic populations, Hispanics are 15-20% of ppl in these outer southeast Bmore neighborhoods, close to 40% of those Hispanics are Puerto Rican compared to 20% in the whole Baltimore metro. Dundalk also has significant numbers of Puerto Ricans and Mexicans.

No, not Dundalk, because the illegals do not come into the county. Baltimore city is a sanctuary city.

Though yes there is a huge population of illegals in Highland town, Patterson Park, Oldham Ave (Mecca of Illegals), Broadway street, and Upper Fells Point.
