Then "screem" what you like, "Where the jews at?" , "Where the Italians at?" etc.... I don't have a problem with it. I remember a thread on this board asking "Where have all the italians have gone?" , no one through a fit. Go ahead show off your patriotism or ethnicity, just keep any bigotry to yourself. Then you'll hear "screeming".

North Newark is little Puerto Rico.

Elizabeth has far less Puerto Ricans than it used to ... they've been supplanted by Mexicans and Central Americans.

Perth Amboy still has Puerto Ricans, but it's mostly Dominican now.

I guess we're figuring that considering the USA is more than 80% white, if you're looking for white folks, you shouldn't have any problem finding them............

Well, 80% white in what neighborhood? Not where I grew up. EVERYONE was some shade of tan or brown. In grade school we called it a big pretzel. All brown with some white sprinkles on top. lol

I didn't mean to have this thread sound racist. I just simply wanted to know where, or if, in Trenton has a large Puerto Rican presence. I still haven't gotten a specific answer. I'm well aware of the large Puerto Rican communities in Camden, Newark and Paterson (I have family in Camden and Newark), but I want to nowhere specifically in Trenton would you find a lot of Puerto Ricans: West Trenton, North Trenton, South Trenton, Mill Hill (I heard they had a lot before it got gentrified)?

P.S. My grandmother lives in East Trenton on Cuyler Ave, but her street is almost entirely African American and West Indian (mainly Jamaican and Haitian).

spikeboy25,
Besides dispersing to places like Hamilton and Yardville, etc, a lot of Trenton Puerto Ricans have relocated to South Trenton, including the formerly all Italian Chambersburg.
