I took a picture of the only Hispanic person I saw, she was a woman with a creeped out look on her face because I was being an obnoxious tourist and taking a picture of her and her son. It was worth it because that picture of the woman and her son are the only Hispanics that I saw of in Phily. I know Phily has some Hispanic folks but they aren't the most common group there from my experience. Maybe this is because of segregation? IDK

The US census doesn't count Brazilians as Hispanic but even without them Boston had Hispanics all over Copley Square, Newbury, Boylston, etc.

in philly you mainly have puerto ricans who are the vast majority of Latinos.

Boston also has a puerto rican majority as well but i believe the puerto ricans in Boston do not leap over all the other Hispanics in huge numbers as compared to philly.

Here's the picture of her and her son or brother who ever that kid is to her that I took on Market street. She was angry but I went to the BosWash corridor with a magnifying glass and judged EVERYTHING I saw there. Similarly I took a picture of the first Asian woman I saw but deleted it after I saw a few more Asians in Phily. Phily's Hispanic population is the weakest of the 4 groups IMO.

I think it's Boston. But Boston is majority white. So maybe it's Philadelphia. After all, they do house the second largest population of Puerto-Ricans in the tri-state area. From what I've heard.
