According to the ACS, 1,639 people moved from Puerto Rico to Philadelphia in 2013.
Well I wouldnt say "most" Puerto Rico migrants are going to Florida, their just getting the largest share. In reality, about half of them are going to Florida, the other half are going to other states, including Pennsylvania, Texas, Massachusetts, Virginia among others, mainly eastcoast states. After Florida, Pennsylvania has the 2nd largest share. Besides the Orlando area, many are also going to the metropolitan areas of Philly, Tampa, NYC, Miami, Boston, Jacksonville, Houston, Hampton roads.. Ppl act like 95% of PRs go to the Orlando area, when in reality only 50% are going to Florida overall with about two thirds of that are going to Orlando , so that's only 30%....

Also many Puerto Ricans are moving to Philly from other states especially NY. Philadelphia is, hands down, the most popular destination among Puerto Ricans outside the south, even more than NYC now.

By "most" I meant more than 50%. I knew it was at least 50% because I had read that in article a couple of years ago but didn't feel like searching for it.

There has always been population exchange between these two cities and a lot of the people moving from New York to Philly are probably Philadelphia natives returning home.
True, but the population exchange is only getting larger, alot larger. These cities are so similar anyway, it doesn't take much migration to pull these 2 closer together culturally, as compared to Florida which was once a sparsely populated deep south backwoods swamp state before gettin bombarded by NYers.

Incomes will limit how high the region's COL can become. Philly will get more expensive but I doubt it will ever be anywhere near DC or Boston because it doesn't have the same number of high-paying jobs as those cities.

So what about the 94.1% that don't come from New York City? What impact do they have on the city's culture?

Yes Philly would get more expensive, if ppl continue to move here from NY and other places, the demand for housing increases and so does the cost of living.

But I HIGHLY doubt Philly will ever be as expensive (or crowded) as NY.
1. The city restricts residential homes from being built too high. So you won't see much residential high rises and the density that comes wit it like in NYC, Philly will mostly remain dominated by row homes.
2. NYC is the largest city (by far), a major entertainment hub, and the financial capital of the world. Philly is miniscule compared to this, and I think that's a good thing for Philly.

But what I'm saying is the cities are so similar that u dont need a mega mass migration to make much a difference.

And I'm saying that if New Yorkers supposedly make Philadelphia more culturally like New York by virtue of their mere presence, then it's only logical that people from other places also make Philadelphia more like the places they came from. So if Philadelphia is becoming more like NYC due to migration, then isn't it also becoming more like Baltimore, Denver, Pittsburgh, the Bay Area, Atlanta, Charlotte, DC, Richmond, Chicago, etc?

Not necessarily, cities like Chicago, Atlanta, Denver, Bay area have almost nothing in common with Philly. Compared to a city like New York, which Philly has alot in common with.
