From the 2010 census. Anything more recent than that's going to be an estimate.

I think public libraries have access to it (I wouldn't know because I'm using a university computer), so you can check for yourself (or you can get a 30-day free trial on the product).

I can also access the numbers from 2000, but I don't feel like analyzing them now (Maybe I'll get to it later). All I can say is that there were more PR in the traditionally PR neighborhoods (East Harlem, South Bronx, Bushwick, Sunset Park, etc) than there are today.

What about University Heights? I know its very Dominican, but you still see Puerto Ricans here.

Most of the census tracts are in the high teens, and a few barely make it above 20%. Back in 2000, you had more tracts in the 20-25% range.

Thanks man.

BTW, for anyone who wants to see the breakdown of Hispanic groups in NYC, look at this map.

As you can see, Dominicans and Puerto Ricans dominate the city.

No problem.

And that's a cool map too. And it shows data from 2000 for comparison. It's very interesting to see the changes in a visual way.

I would you major rep points if I could. Thanks! There were definitely more PRs back in 2000 though it's common knowledge. Sunset Park was majority PR then and many parts have quickly become Mexican. Same for Corona Queens with DRs. There are still many PRs in LES and South Williamsburg, as I knew, but it's interesting and kinda sad that some blocks disappear in 2010 census. I knew Park Slope had a good amount PRs and they quickly disappear for 2010 which shows homogenous Park Slope is now.

And thanks, anon1, for the info. I knew Florida is the new destination for many PRs, but I figure that the significance of the NYC-PR relationship, there should still be some PRs coming to the traditional hoods if not at the same rate they used to.

PRs and DRs still outnumber them by a good amount on that map.

True. But the area south of Story Ave. to Soundview Park near Bronx River is an African American stronghold. Not many Puerto Ricans there.
