What are the best cities in America for Hispanics, all around for everything. For Hispanic professionals, for people that want to experience Hispanic/Latino history, Hispanic culture, Hispanic amenities (barber shops, Latino stores, Latin cuisine).

Best metropolitan areas with the best educational institutions for Hispanics, the best neighborhoods for Hispanics, the best entertainment options for Hispanics, the best place for a socially mobile Hispanic person.

How about we try to figure the TOP metropolitan area in America for them first, then we try to establish a top 5, after that a top 10 and then we call it a day with this comparison.

I think it'd be easier to establish a top 10/5 before you decide on THE top city.

To start, I'll nominate San Antonio.

I would assume it very somewhat by Hispanic subgroup. LA for Mexicans, Miami for Cubans/South Americans, NYC for Puerto Ricans, DC for Salvadorians, Boston for Brazilians (latino if not Hispanic) etc.

Which of these cities have Hispanic middle class neighborhoods? And by "middle class," I mean the Hispanic equivalent of P.G. County, Maryland. I don't mean a Hispanic family living on a nice block in a largely non-Hispanic White neighborhood.

Where would I find the Lopez family?

carlos mancia had a stand-up joke (not sure where he stole it from) about when he did a tour in la the promoters would bill him as 'the top mexican comic'; and for shows in miami he would be labelled as 'the #1 cuban comedian'; and in new york he would be 'the puerto rican stand-up sensation'; but in chicago they would list him as 'the best middle-eastern stand-up comic' ?
