What I've noticed is that in recent/recentish years, the underclass US born Hispanic population has become extremely similar regardless of location or Hispanic sub ethnicity.

I'm not sure how different Nuyoricans are from other stateside Ricans (at least in CT, NJ, and PA, I would say not very), but stateside Ricans in general paved the way for the broader Hispanic population. Back in the 90s there was an obvious difference between Puerto Ricans and Mexicans in the states, but that's largely not true anymore.

Mexican/Central American-American guys nowasays get the exact same haircuts that Puerto Rican guys have been stereotyped as having for years. You know, the caesar/drop fade.

I also don't know if Island Ricans are even that much different from stateside Ricans anymore.

Look at Anuel AA for instance (one of the most popular musicians out of PR right now), he dresses pretty similar to a street Puerto Rican guy from.

I also hear Puerto Rican musicians use the N word in their music sometimes, and their music in general is extremely derivative of American hip hop.

According to the 2010 US census, Puerto Ricans constituted about 4% of Chicago's total population and represented 15-20% of the city's Hispanic population.

Most of Chicago's Puerto Rican community is located on the Northwest Side of the city. The largest numbers of Puerto Ricans live in the Chicago community areas of Humboldt Park, Logan Square, Hermosa, Avondale, Austin, Belmont Cragin, Portage Park, and West Town, with Humboldt Park being their cultural and commercial center.

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.
The white área to the southeast is shrinking and Puerto Ricans /Latinos are moving there in droves. The areas are slowly becoming Hispanic/Latino especially Puerto Rican. If you look back in Philly history alot of the areas that are majority Latino were once were majority white (Irish, Italian, Polish). Latinos came and whites left, same transition is happening in predominately white in the southeast of Fairhill, like Kensington and Port Richmond. Whites leaving, and tons of Latinos and even some blacks are replacing them.

But the opposite is happening in North Philly Latino neighborhoods closer to downtown Philadelphia, mild gentrification (nothing compared to NY tho). Also, it does seem like some Latinos are getting more comfortable moving to predominately black areas in western North Philly. But for the most part, we are spreading out eastward and northward from the Fairhill Badlands area of east North Philly.

Puerto Ricans are all over Florida. The Orlando area is just the main spot, it has the highest concentration of Puerto Ricans. But there are lots of boricuas in Tampa Bay area. If you go to Miami area, which has large numbers of other Latino and Caribbean groups, definitely would find a large number of Puerto Ricans. Culturally southern Jacksonville also has a decent sized Puerto Rican population, and growing. Puerto Ricans are widespread in Florida, but are large enough to be dominant in the Orlando area...

^Quite a few in smaller Upstate NY cities like Dunkirk(has state’s first Hispanic mayor(PR) and Amsterdam, as both are around 30% Hispanic and almost completely PR. Geneva, Lackawanna and some of the smaller Hudson Valley cities/towns(Newburgh, Middletown, Hudson, Beacon, Chester, etc.) come to mind.

Some are concentrated on the inner West Sides of Buffalo and Syracuse, as well as parts of the NW and NE quadrants of Rochester. They are growing in the cities of Albany, Schenectady and Troy as well.

As for a suburban area, eastern Irondequoit in the Rochester area comes to mind.

Facts, definitely forgot New England, one of the most Puerto Rican regions in the country, especially Springfield/Holyoke and Hartford. Even other cities like Bridgeport, New Haven, Meriden, Lawrence, and Providence. Of all major cities, Boston has one of the highest concentrations of PRs.
Not only PRs, New England is big on Caribbean in general, PR, Dominicans, Haitians, Jamaicans, also Cape Verdeans, Brazilians, and some of the highest concentrations of Irish and Italians.

That whole area from Cleveland, Ohio to Buffalo and Rochester in Western NY , and even including some parts of western PA and smaller cities in Ohio and NY like Dunkirk, Youngstown, and Lorain. The most Puerto Rican area in the Great Lakes/Midwest region. Well, it's almost Midwest, it ain the eastcoast

New England is generally forgotten for anything other than white people. For some reason people either don’t know or don’t want to accept that Southern New England is one of the more ethnically diverse areas of the country. Idk why that is but it’s whatever. New England definitely should be on this list.
