Hi people, I wanna move to the States next year.. Unfortunatly, I'll go alone.. so I'm trying to find people that have/are thinking about going to the States also.

I would even like to find a partner to share a house or something like that, and basically to help each other.

I'm 19, so I would like to find someone with the same age(+/-)... Male or Female...

Sorry if this is not the right place to post this... If you know where I could post it, just say it.

The biggest population around NYC that's Portuguese is in Ironbound section of Newark NJ, a few miles west of Manhattan. But getting here legally and finding work? That's the hard part

There's also many Portuguese in New Bedford Mass, about an hour or so from Boston. I guess they'd help you out if you got there. But again, getting here legally is the big problem.

Yeah, I'll have to do a lot before making a move. But I'll do fine. My main prob now is me going all alone. I'm kinda scared you know. It would be so awesome to have someone helping me with all the process... etc.

I'll find someone... I know it!!

This might be helpful if you end up looking into Mass.

I'm not too involved with the Portuguese/Brazilian community, but I've seen signs for it around Boston.

Also, as a side note, I believe that Portuguese is the third most spoken language in MA and RI after Spanish and English.

There's a section of Newark, New Jersey, called The Ironbound (name is because of railroad tracks) that has long been an established Portuguese neighborhood. Known for its restaurants and its annual Dia de Portugal festival.

Providence and many other communities in Rhode Island would also fit. Some communities in Connecticut as well.

Massachusetts and Rhode Island both have very large Portuguese communities...not just that, but there are also very large Brasilian and Cape Verdean communities. There are plenty of areas in the Boston area where you can speak Portuguese-only.

Boa sorte!

I know that there is a Portuguese Brazilian community in the NYC area. But I suggest that you google it for more details.

In the West Coast, there is a small Portuguese/Brazilian community in West L.A. around Culver city. Otherwise, the Portuguese and Brazilians aren't really clustered in Southern California, but spread out. I'm not Portuguese, but I am a big fan of Portuguese and Brazilian culture so I am part of a few Portuguese MeetUp groups.

In the major cities like L.A., NYC, Chicago and Miami you're bound to find some Portuguese people even if no defined ethnic enclave exist, due to how those cities just attract migrants from all over the world.

I believe that Hawaii also has a notable Portuguese community as well. Portuguese immigration to Hawaii - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
