Well I wouldnt say by far, its about even, I do see slightly more Rican man & black woman combos than I do the opposite... I dont know where u be at, but I got family all over the Philly area and lived in many neighborhoods in the area, theres plenty of PR men/ bw combos, like I said its about even tho. It definetly does seem that Philly black women are more interested in Hispanic men than black women in most other cities.

You are right about the last part , Philly Puerto Ricans are not purely segregated, just alot more so than NY Puerto Ricans, and many other PR communities, but that doesnt mean they are entirely segregated.

Not sure why so many Puerto Rican's come to the mainland. My DIL is from PR and she is the only one in her family who lives here. College is very cheap in Puerto Rico, so the only logical reason to come is if you can't find a job after college. The folks who stay, seem to get along just fine, with cheap medical care.

The economy is terrible in Puerto Rico. My impression that the Puerto Rican exodus to the mainland is largely based on economics and the perception that there is more opportunity here.

What I'm saying is. They sure as hell better finish college in PR first, because it is a lot cheaper. My DIL is an architect, her brother is a lawyer and her other brother is still in college. The only reason why they'd leave is if they couldn't work there. Admittedly, her family is comfortable financially.

Just to re-up on this thread. Heres some more videos.
Some more Philadelphia
These are newly uploaded videos with more footage of Phillys predominately Puerto Rican areas.


The Hood- North Philly (Hunting Park, Fairhill, Temple East, Kensington) & Camden NJ

Middle class Black/Hispanic areas in Uptown (Lawncrest, Oxford Circle)


http://https://youtu.be/QZyr7epWCaU


It seems that of major cities, Most PR influence to least:
These are essentially the PR powerhouses
-Bronx NYC
-Orlando
-Philadelphia
...But these also have heavy PR influences
-Cleveland
-Tampa
-NYC's other 4 boros (especially Brooklyn & Manhattan)
-Boston
-Chicago
-can also include Rochester, Buffalo, Miami, & Jacksonville, and smaller cities thru out the northeast.

By now North Philadelphia/Camden is a more popular destination for Ricans then the Bronx is, its becoming what the BX was in the 1950s and 60s the go-to spot when going to the northeast. I would say the Philly metro area is the most popular destination for PRs, second only to the Orlando area. NYC is losing Puerto Ricans and their influence is dwindling.

If you look at this map you can see Philly's Latino population is pretty fragmented because it is broken up by large uninhabited industrial areas.It also seems like its boxed in by the solid black population on the west and the solid white population on the southeast. It's like a wedge shape and the only way to branch into more territory is to move in a northeastern direction.

I actually hope this is happening because the only place for Philly's Latino population to start a new completely contiguous community is in lower northeast Philadelphia, where there is already a sizable Latino community mixed in with blacks and some whites and Asians. And the Lower Northeast is huge at 15 square miles, about the same size as the South Bronx.

Jax is becoming more Rican and Hispanic in general. In a few decades, Jacksonville might become a new Puerto Rican hub, it's kinda already a Filipino hub in the southeast. Orlando caught up to Miami as far as being the Hispanic hub in Florida, I remember my Godmother told me when she visited Kissimmee in the late 90s she saw nothing but white people crazy how now people are saying Orlando is flooded with Hispanics.

Pioneer Valley aka Hartford-Springfield area is the most Puerto Rican area per capita in the country outside of the Bronx maybe... Lehigh Valley is right behind though. And probably more raw numbers. Two very similar areas in general.

CT is the most Puerto Rican state in the country . Holyoke, MA is the most Puerto Rican city per capita in the US

Since NYC isnt really feasible to live in anymore.. a lot of Puerto Ricans from NYC propper are heading to Orlando, Springfield MA, Jersey or Philadelphia. Mostly to Orlando though.
