NYC has a huge Dominican population but most of the Dominicans I know in the states live in Connecticut, New Jersey, Massachusetts , and Florida. My wifes family live in Utah, Texas, Florida, and Missouri. Many, many Dominicans live on Long Island, much cheaper than NYC.We'll just have to agree to disagree. On this forum everyone "knows" someone who is building this and that. In reality, the cost of living in NYC are high and theyre barely making it themselves. Yet somehow theyre sending money and building additions to homes in the DR. Hogwash!
