The only major American city (metro >2 million) that is majority Hispanic is San Antonio, as far as I can think of. And, even then, it was barely over 50% Hispanic, so it might have changed by now.

Well, and San Juan, but I do not believe that Puerto Rico is doing very well.

Low incidence of gang violence

My thoughts on this probably:

San Diego
San Francisco
Tampa
New York
Boston
Weston Florida, rich, highly educated, top ten place to live and majority Spanish

While not Hispanic plurality, NYC has a lot of neighborhoods with big Hispanic populations and low violent crime.

College attendance varies by Hispanic subgroup.

San Antonio is 63.2 percent Hispanic.

I went to a city council meeting there a few years ago and English was the second language - the meeting was conduction in Spanish.

39.5 percent of the Texas population is Hispanic. In fact, up here in northeast Texas I had a "first" happen to me the other day. I went to a funeral and it was in Spanish and English - and though the deceased was not Hispanic, about half the attendees were.

Laredo, TX is 96 percent Hispanic.
McAllen, TX is 91 percent Hispanic.
El Paso is 83 percent.
Pasadena is 62 percent.
Corpus Christi is 60 percent.
Houston is 38 percent.
Dallas and Fort Worth are 29 percent.

Texas is one of four majority-minority states - where white non Hispanics make up less than 50 percent of the total population.

Almost all the majority Hispanic cities are in California and Texas-except Miami, Paterson (NJ) and Elizabeth (NJ).

Others that come close are Phoenix, Providence, Hartford (CT) Albuquerque, Allentown (PA) and Denver.
Lawrence MA, Springfield MA. And a few other cities in Northern NJ.

They are Tejano's, not really Mexicans. They have been in San Antonio for so many generations that they are more Texan than anything else. Houston and Dallas are more foreign born Mexican than San Antonio is.
