as a young teen, i lived in 164th and Amsterdam ave from 1989 to 1993. THAT was hell on earth. drug dealers dealing dope in all four corners, crooked cops every single one of them, crack heads everywhere etc..but things changed for the better.

I remember this. This is actually where i used to live (186 Audubon). I remember i went to Ikea to get some kitchen and bathroom supplies and totally forgot about the Dominican parade. When i was walking to the apt building every block was flooded with people. Lots of hot girls though!

i truly believe that we Dominicans are one of the hardest working and productive people in this great country, we are far from perfect, but we do contribute a lot to this country.
Yeah, it's funny how people talk about us but everyyone wants to be like us! Lol. Notice none of the people on here talking are latino.

I lived in 160 between ams and broad from about 81 to 92. Rough rough place man. Total war zone. If you go there now it doesnt look so bad because they tore a lot of the worst buldings up and built a school. Im just happy I made it and that I had parents who gave a damn. Thats why anything that happens over there now doesnt phase me. Its kids playing cops and robbers compared to those days.

Also I would like to take this opportunity since this has become Dominican stereotype central to point out that there are tons upon tons of good hard working Dominicans/Dominican-Americans its just the loud dumb and dangerous ones are much more noticeable unfortunately...

Been thier, dont that, nothing special if you ask me. I even had Dominicans say to me yo we see you as a Dominican. There area lot of hard working Dominicans but its just does that get caught up in the hustling game and make it real bad for those Dominicans that wanna propel themselves to be law abiding citizens. There are alot of good Dominicans that care about family and society and want better for thier kids and for themselves. Many fall into typical NYC cycle of deperivation of dropping out of school, teen pregnancy, hustling, prostitution, drugs and other criminal elements like many other New Yorkers of the current and past like BLack Americans, PUerto Ricans, Italians, Irish. One time I walked passed El Morocco on 145 and Amsterdam, a group of Dominican guys kept on eyeing me up like if they knew me or something, looking back and forth and they continued to look at me until I got to the corner, As soon as I crossed the 145th street bridge back to Mott Haven I felt alot safer.

And p.s. The poster I was addressing specifically said (paraphrased) "notice how they're comin on here talking spanish", so yeah, it's pretty obvious what he meant.

He said and I quote "notice none of the people talking are not latino", which makes it even more obvious though the op is Peruvian.
