This is a bold statement. Houston is definitely diverse, but doesn't beat any of its peers "by far". In fact, I think NYC is a more international city.

Central NJ is rapidly becoming a hub for many Hispanic/Latino folks. Tons of folks from Central America and South America via El Salvador, Peru, Guatemala. Not really Mexican as much, but mostly South Americans.

Perth Amboy is a mecca in NJ. Yah gotta brush up on your Spanish in Perth Amboy, because a lot of folks don't know English there for some reason. Union City, West NY, Paterson, Elizabeth, and Passaic to name a few have a sizable demographic for Hispanics/Latinos.

If you look at a lot of the 3PL or light-industrial/light-manufacturing/warehouse storage companies in Central NJ or around the Passaic area, a large bulk of the work force is Hispanic.

Newark NJ has seen a shift in the traditionally Spanish (Spain) and Portuguese Ironbound neighborhood to one that has more Brazilians and Dominicans.

On a side note, some of those cities are good areas for parades if you can catch one. And generally, Latina women know how to party.

A Brazilian friend of mine that lives in Chicago has family in Newark and often travels there. I know from him the parades get wild.

Oh my lord do they get wild.

DO NOT bring the girlfriend or wife to those parades, because as a man, you might become a fatality if they catch you staring, and drooling. Keep them eyes in your head, because they will pop out.

Anything involving Brazil winning in soccer usually results in topless folks and nice 46" rears up in the air.
