Puerto Rican New York


Welcome to the New York City guide to world-class Puerto Rican culture in Manhattan. New York City has world-class Puerto Rican music, dance, theatre, film, art, fashion, literature, food and sports.

New Yorkers with a Puerto Rican heritage are the largest group of New Yorkers with a Hispanic heritage. In the last 2010 Census, 29% of New Yorkers had a Hispanic heritage. 31% of them have a Puerto Rican heritage.

One of the biggest contributions Puerto Ricans have made to New York City is Latin Jazz. In the 1970s Cuban music with a strong Puerto Rican influence went global out of New York as Salsa.

The more we mix, the richer our lives become. When we isolate ourselves in a barrio or block a group from full participation in society, the only people we hurt are ourselves.

This year, 2014, has brought to the forefront many problems in the world that we can only solve together. God bless America.

There are shows today at 3 and 6pm. This afternoon in Kids Dance! Rodney Lopez teaches dancers ages 6-10 the basics of Swing, Merengue, Tango and a little Salsa.

Tonight the Harlem Renaissance Orchestra closes Midsummer Night Swing with Detroit sax man James Carter playing the customary tribute to legendary jazz tenor saxophonist Jean-Baptiste Jacquet (American, 1922-2004) who passed away shortly after his last performance at Midsummer Night Swing 2004.

The crowd at this dance party and free concert is mostly Upper West Side. The people watching is great. It’s a free concert so many people listen and dance in the plaza. It’s a good way for families with children to participate and some of the orchestras are legendary.

You only pay to get on the dance floor which is built as a dance floor so it’s good. All kinds of dancers go, from professionals to people taking their first dance steps. There are old folks remembering when they first heard these songs and young people discovering how much fun couples dancing is. A lot of those couples go for romantic walks through Central Park afterwards to enjoy these midsummer nights.
