I have worked a few decades in many different public high schools in NYC and thousands of Dominican students. Every school I have been in there has been from a vast majority of Dominican born/family to a small contingent. I can not tell you how many times a distant cousin of my wife or some connection to SFM ends up in a school or a class of mine. This year I am being rotated to a new school every week and this week I am on the upper East Side, the really nice part of NYC. An entirely different environment than I am accustomed. Because I am in the library managing study halls and covering classes, I get a chance to interact with the students. It is rare that there are "white" students in the schools I have been in, but this school is listed as 60% white. I found out many are European or Brazilians, and from well off families or supers in their buildings. A significant number of Asian students are also there. There are a small number of students of color and when I inquired and most students who claimed Dominican heritage were mixed with Puerto Rican, "white", "Black" and one South Korean. One girl said she lived in Las Terrenas from 4 years old to 10. European mother, I think Swedish and African American dad. This was the first time a kid from Las Terrenas was in my class.
