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.

everything from the westside of elizabeth to newark is central american these days. definitely a big hub.
