Hey, what's up. I'm PR (Puerto Rican) and thinking about moving to New York City to become a real estate agent & becuase here in Northern California (Bay Area) there's hardly any PR's. I was wondering, where are the communities in New York considered as "PR" communities and does New York City have any Puerto Rican Markets?

Thanks

- Juan

SuperCrazy,

You can move to Brooklyn, Queens, Lower East Side in NYC or the Bronx..these boroughs have the highest concentration of Puerto Rican communities, markets, etc. I am alos of PR descent and lived in Brooklyn, NY pretty much all my life until we moved to Vegas in 2001. There's also the PR Day Parade in NYC and the Festivals leading up to the parade day which are on 116th Street. For awesome PR food go to La Taza de Oro Restaurant in NYC (just like mom's cooking). Good Luck with your move....btw, NYC is a bit more expensive than the Bay Area though and the apartments are tiny.

Sunset Park in Brooklyn is a vibrant Puerto Rican Neighborhood as well as El Barrio (Spanish Harlem).
Its going to feel like home when you get here.

looking for growing Latino population and real estate market? check out Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It ain't the Bay and it ain't NY but it's close to Chicago if you land here and find you don't like it. good luck

Probably, you would be better of in Staten Island, New York, (one of the boroughs of NYC,) but most of them are NeoRicans, (PR born in NY) and they speak mostly English. There are no specific "Puerto Rican Neighborhoods per se" there.

Perth Amboy, NJ, New Brunswick, NJ, and Plainfield, NJ, are very much PR neighborhoods, so are Jersey City, and parts of Patterson, NJ. Jobs are scarce in NY and NJ, and real estate is dead...........

The nyc puerto rican population is on the decline my friend, many old time ricans are eithir retiring to fl or lay dead 6 feet under. Many ricans are moving to greener pastures and many young ricans are leaving nyc for oppurtunities else where. You should try the common wealth of pr or try fl, parts of nj, pa and nc for puerto ricans. Sorry to break it to you but as a potential nyc transplant you probably have more in common with waspy outsiders then native neoricans buddy.
