Recent is relative, as it seems that anything after NYC is recent in this context.

In Boston, about half the blacks are West Indians, and there's just as much Dominicans as there is Ricans. NYC is mega diverse, almost plenty of nationalities can be found there in sizable numbers, about one third of blacks are West Indian, a small number are African and the rest is African American, with Dominicans and Ricans are predominant among Hispanics.

DC and Baltimore are noticeably different. In DC, its mainly African Americans, who are very southern compared to NY or Philly, who make up the majority of blacks, tho there are small West Indian and African populations. Also Central American groups make up almost half, which is completely different then most other metros, especially on the east coast. Baltimore is a very black and white city, tho it does have growing West Indian and Hispanic (Mexican/Central American, Puerto Rican/Dominican) populations its very very small compared to the rest of the Bos-Wash corridor. Bmore is starting to get a lil run-off from DC, Philly, or even NY. And Tho it is changing, right now Baltimore is still very black and white.
Just Red that Dominicans made up 31 percent of Latinos in Boston in 2014 and Puerto Rican's made up 23%. Next biggest group was Salvadoran. Further more NYC IS 28% Latino Boston is 19% in assuming Philly is about 13%. DC and Baltimore are probably 9% on average and the Latino population is much much more recent.

Dc is more like NYC and Bos And Philly and Baltimore seem more alike to me. Philly has a lot of Baltimore in it and a little Boston. I feel like it has very little NYC to it.

The main difference I've seen is the east coast look, which is a little more bundled up than the west coast look. I see much more tennis shoes coupled with leather jackets on the east coast. West coast is more fashionable in a trendy way. East coasters are stylish but still need to survive the winter lol

East Coast vs West Coast is often interpreted as California vs New York City. However, we all know East Coast include more than a dozen states from Maine to Florida, NYC culture doesn't represent East Coast culture as a whole.

I am curious about the cultural comparison between West Coast(WA,OR,CA,HI,AK) vs East Coast(from ME to FL). The most difficult part is the definition of East Coast culture.

Leather jackets? Other than hipster girls going for a retro look, who wears leather jackets? I don't think that's been a thing since 99-00.

Interesting that the North End still has some Italian left while Little Italy doesn't

This makes doesn't make sense to me as NYC has the largest concentration of blacks in the US. Blacks have always moved to the major cities "up north" for as long as we know.

So? When you're the largest city that is bound to happen. However a good chunk of NYC Blacks are African of Caribbean. Besides, states and cities with the highest percentage of Blacks always tend to be Southern so it's not like this is some kind of unique Northeast trait. Now give me large concentrations of Italians and there we can make an observation.

If you are talking about ME to FL there is no "East coast" culture. The only thing we probably share in common is a love for seafood, shorts, flip flops, beaches, and vacationing in the same states along the coast.

As you can tell from reading the post here the "Northeast" or "BosWash" corridor are more about social ranking and the "have and have not" culture. Example: look how they argue over who has the most immigrants, rowhouses, education, etc. Also, look how people from Baltimore, D.C. and even northern VA will argue to their death that they are not "southern". This is because they look at the lower south atlantic as poor uneducated trash. The South Atlantic is more blue collar and less materialistic and stuck up.

Next question please?

I'm advocating Baltimore being southern. The Northeast just doesn't have it anymore.

I gotta lot of love for Baltimore since I have a good amount of family from there. I think it has characteristics from both the North and South. It is something that is unique in the US. Not many other cities have two totally different cultures mixed into one place. It is something that should be embraced and not denied,
