Very positive, that is a beautiful thing. The Puerto Rico territorial constitution speaks of this merger of the 2 cultures.

Another positive thing is the existence of so many sexy Puerto Rican women and their accent.

One of the first Puerto Rican entertainers to achieve world-wide fame was Antonio Paoli, an opera singer known as "The King of Tenors" and as "The Tenor of Kings." He was the first operatic artist to record an entire opera when he participated in a performance of Pagliacci by Ruggiero Leoncavallo in Italy in 1907.[21]

A forum about something positive and there's just a few post, that's sad. I think society as a whole feeds on negativity it's like second nature to us I guess. I'm new here on Puerto Rico forum and so far I'm proud of the educated yet diverse discussions I've seen here.

A middle city?

What about Hartford or East Hartford where you can be a much needed asset to the stateside Puerto Rican community?

sorry i meant something In between like city but quiet I know that didn't make much sense. I never thought of Hartford I was more incline to New Haven because of the universities but Hartford does have a lot of Puerto ricans come to think about of it lol and it is a city , i also heard the schools are good. I was going to try to head back to NY but the fast life is not for everybody, although I love my city. Thanks for the input I will look into Hartford a little closer its an hr away from me anyways.

Hartford is way more affordable than New Y. and the pace is way more pleasant.

Hartford is halfway between Boston and NYC (so you have the best of both world at a reasonable price).

I went to college in the area (in Amherst, MA-an hour's trip from Hartford) and got to know the area pretty well.

Love Hartford!

That's nice thanks for sharing your experience. I agree NY is pretty expensive although in The part of CT I'm living is pretty pricey too but less than the city. How do you like living in San Juan? I haven't been to the island since I was child :(

I love my city...(as old and chaotic as it is, but its mine).

That's the beauty of being Puerto Rican, island or stateside, we can all claim ownership to these small pieces of emerald lands called Puerto Rico.

POSITIVE FACT #1 For a tiny island PR with less than 4 million inhabitants has a disproportionate amount of talent. Our atheletes, artist, celebrities,, musicians, singers, ect are world reknown. From Hip Hop to Nasa Puerto Ricans have left their blueprint.....

Puerto Rico is only 100 by 35 miles yet has one of the most diverse ecosystems in the planet. PR has a rainforest(really the whole center of the island is a rainforest) and also desert(Guanica Dry Forest). Swamps, Marshes, lakes rivers, canyons. Its shores can have white sand, black sand, no sand, rocky, beaches with mangroves going into the ocean and places where waves smash against cliffs. It has a wide variety of plants and trees, birds, wildlife.... but yet is also very urbanized at the same time.... God Bless PR... I dont mind if I never leave this island again....
