Some surprise communities would be: Lawrence, MA- which has a lot of Dominicans and Puerto Ricans and is about 60% Hispanic, Central Falls, RI- which is about 68% Hispanic, Bridgeport, CT- which is about a third Hispanic, Reading, PA-which is 37% Hispanic, Providence, RI-about 30% Hispanic and Springfield, MA-about 27% Hispanic.

A few of you got the question right, then gave the wrong answer. Los Angeles, through Hollywood, influences more of the world culturally than any U.S. city- and it's not that close. The cities most influenced by Latin America are Miami (far ahead), then L. A., San Antonio, San Diego, New York, Phoenix, Houston, Chicago, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Las Vegas, Dallas, blah bla blah

Too man cities named. I agree with you about Miami and LA. But I think NYC, Houston, Dallas, Chicago Las Vegas, and Phoenix are the only other cities influenced somewhat by Latin America. Atlanta and Philly not much simply because there is not many there as of now.

Miami by far. Miami is known as the Capital of Latin America and Gateway to the Americas. It is a huge Latin American Financial centre. It is the gateway to the region by Air and Sea. Miami International has every major Latin American Airline flying there and AA has a huge Latin American Caribbean hub. It is there biggest International Hub. Ft. Lauderdale Hollywood International also has a large presence of Latin American and Caribbean Airlines and Destinations from many airlines.
Miami is home to over 1400 multinational companies Latin American HQs! Miami is home to the World HQs of Telefónica USA, TeleFutura, Telemundo, Univision. Miami is a huge Latin American destination. Nothing can compare to Miami to the influence it has on the region and culture. New York would come in second than LA and Washington DC. Those smaller cities like El Paso or San Antonio might have a large amount of Hispanics (mostly Mexican) but they dont have the influence the large cities do.
