    Default The Dominicans in NYC??

    I've been around Dominicans for a many years now, mostly in NYC. I've noticed that most of the Dominicans in NYC are from either Santiago, La Vega, or the surrounding areas. If true, why is that??
    The only non-mixed dominicans (morenos) I rarely see is the baseball players on TV and the very, very few sprinkled here and there. Trust me I've hung out in nearly all the domincan neighborhoods in NYC and a few in NJ.

    can you expand on what you mean by that statement, I'm totally confused.

    I'm from San Cristobal - there's a big population from Sancri here in NJ...

    Also, dont forget Dominicans will say that they are from a city instead of their campo.

    I mean I rarely see any dark-skinned dominicans in the neighborhoods, dominican clubs and restaurants in NYC i.e. Mirage, Jubilee (Queens & Manhattan), Mar de Plata, Puerto Plata, Borinquen, etc... The only southern town I hear from them is the Capital. Ohh, one guy admitted he was from Boca Chica

    I was just curious, if most of the illegal aliens entering the US are supposedly poor, and generally speaking, the darker-skinned dominicans (morenos) are usually the poorest out of the bunch from the southern part of the island. I should be seeing more of the morenos here in the city. Unless, their mixed in with the African Americans.

    You can't put everyone in a bunch. Not all Dominicans in the U.S. or in NY are chopos. I doubt you have met all Dominicans in NY and the rest of the U.S. Just because someone immigrated doesn't mean their a chopo...if so, wouldn't that make you and your parents chopos for migrating from the Middle East to the U.S?

    I cant speak for new york , but i can speak for new jersey .It sometimes depends on where exactly in NJ they are from .For instance , in places like Perth Amboy ,Newark ,and Trenton ,Camden ,thier Dominican populations tend to be lighter becuase most of them come from special areas in dr .(Newark,San Jose de Las Matas-Perth Amboy La Vega and Santiago-Trenton and camden also have many Cibaenos )they are all from one place ,but when it comes to places with very large Dominican populations like Paterson,Passiac, Jersey City,Union City , West New York ,North Bergen,Guttenburg,some parts of bergan county ) there is alot of diversity (as in regions in DR people are from) ,but i will note that in the hudson county area there is a large number of Black surenos (as in they are physically black and happen to be from the southern part of the island) many also move to predominantly black neighborhoods like east orange , irvington, black parts of Newark ,Hackensack,Teaneck,Hoboken(projects) . Most are Capitalenos ,but i have also met alot of Sancri's ,Boca chicas,one san pedro,a few Banilejos(most are light skinned or white) ,other than that not too many people form anywhere else .Then you have many Haitians claiming to be part Dominican ,just to fit in with the Hispanic crowd(I've seen it sooo many times ) ,alot blacks do the same as well .so, sometimes the person can be lying.

    Default So...

    you want to know where Black Dominicans are?
    Just go to Washington Heights, unless you're color blind (no offense) most Dominicans in Washington Heights are black with nappy hair aka Manny Ramirez looking but you might be looking for Sammy Sosa black dominicans again check Washington Heights.

    The majority of Dominicans (around 60%) are Cibaeņos. Expect most migrants to be from the Cibao and in general, Cibao Dominicans tend to be white, but most likely light skin mix and in many cases, Taino influences are so pronounce in some of their physical appearance that denying Taino genes is almost impossible.

    The other place in this country where Dominicans congregate in huge numbers is right here (La Capital), where around 30% of the Dominicans live. Here the mixture is great (from blondes to pure Congolese decendants from Villa Mella (I know VM is not part of SDQ, but it is virtually a suburb of the Capital that it might as well be)).

    The rest of the country is, well, not that populated. Only 10% of Dominicans live outside of Cibao and Capital areas.

    Only 10% or around 800,000 people. The Capital has around 3 million and the Cibao has around 4.8 million with Santiago hoovering around the 1 million mark (according to certain estimates).

    The East is mostly populated along the Costa Caribe and Higuey is the largest interior town in the region with a few hundred thousand peoples.

    And the South, well, most of the biggest cities in the South tend dwarf in comparison to populations in urban centers in the Cibao region or even in the East in certain cases.

    Knowing all of this, it makes sense that most Dominican emigrants will be from the Cibao and Capital and not from anywhere else.

    In addition to all of this we can't deny the extremely heavy Haitian presence in this country. Estimates range from 500,000 to 1 million, but these are conservative estimates!

    There could be up to 3 million Haitians and Dominico-Haitians in the Dominican side and obviously, they will be seen in the streets nationwide.

    Excuse me AZB, but you are way off, you are painting every Dominican living in NYC with the same brush. You think every Dominican in NYC is a pop cultured moron or adolescent, we are not all like that.
    It would be the same if I said all pakastanis are terriorists or every foreniger living in DR is a criminal/sex pervert or that chiropractors aren't real doctors.

    No we are not all alike, not every Dominican is dark skined or has nappy hair, etc.

    Peace, Capo

    PS You'll see kids from the best suburbs dressing & speaking ghetto, it's "cool".

    Out of curiosity, tell me something........... where does your intense aversion to poor dominicans and dominican americans come from? Have they abused, harmed or insulted you in any way, shape or form? Do they make your life difficult? On numerous occasion I've noticed you lashing out at them and I'd like to know why.

    Has it ever occured to you that (deep down inside) you may actually envy"chopos"? Are all pakistani men: wife-beating terrorists, with no respect for women's rights or human rights? Are poor dominicans any worse than poor paks?

    By the way...... the baseball cap, diamond studded earings look is all but the universal look of youth and young adults these days. You'll find it in stockholm, london and tokyo. You'll find it in russia, croatia and dublin etc..
