I just watched your YouTube video and I must say that it's 100% Nuyorican. Based on the things you are saying, living in NYC has influenced you far more than Puerto Rican culture (from the island) has influenced you.

I guess the place of birth complicates issues a bit, but it's complicated nonetheless. Fact is, we're part of a new generation - at the very least, of a boom where more and more of us are spreading out about the country and reaching this reaction - and it's something that's really tough to follow.

I myself was born in New York, but am Hispanic. I always answer with New York first, but then I include my heritage as well.
