The old Lincoln Square area, parts of Harlem, East Village, LES and other areas come to mind.

In 1950's blacks flooded into NYC from the south and PRs came from their island to city; together both weren't exactly welcomed and thus found themselves (again) thrust into alliances or whatever more out of common necessity.


However the "latino" make-up of NYC has changed over decades. PRs have moved up and out of ghettos and in many cases into "mainstream" or whatever white America. In many areas of city Hispanic-Latino is now dominated by Dominicans, Mexicans and increasingly Salvadorans. They don't have that same back story with blacks and as such relations between them are different.
Yes but even tho dominicans now outnumber Puerto Ricanís thereís still many in those same areas you mentioned . Plus most of the western bronx iis a mix of Puerto Rican , domninican , African American of course with some other latins as well

It is true more hispanics from Mexico, Central America are coming in, and Blacks are leaving. Even PR people are leaving.

But to TS, I heard that even in upstate NY cities like Buffalo, Rochester etc, there is rivalry between Blacks, DR, and PR.
