  • Puerto Ricans Leave N.Y.
    Report Tells Where They Go


    The Puerto Rican population in the United States is continuing to grow and continuing to move out of their traditional enclaves, with the largest population increases in the same areas that beckon the U.S. population as whole, particularly the Sunbelt. The only area of the country that continues to lose Puerto Ricans is New York City.

    While the first decade of the millennium witnessed an overall improvement in Puerto Rican residential separation from non-Hispanic whites, Puerto Ricans are still more likely to live among other Puerto Ricans.

  • Centro Art Exhibit Spotlights
    Historic South Bronx Images

    Open to the Public until February 1
    Silberman School of Social Work
    2180 Third Avenue, East 119th Street


    As the Bronx marks 2014 with the 100th anniversary of its formal separation from New York County and the 375th anniversary of the arrival of the county’s namesake, Jonas Bronck, Centro’s current art exhibit focuses tightly on that borough – showcasing the work of a noted Bronx photographer known for his images of the South Bronx.

    For photographer Carlos Ortiz, his lens became a tool to tell his Bronx story in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. Ortiz, who was born in Puerto Rico and raised in the Bronx, regularly shot photos of Bronx people and places, including those in his Longwood neighborhood. They reflect images of the devastation in his community and the resiliency of his people.

  • Centro's New Educational Tool
    Highlights Puerto Rican Heritage

    Centro’s new Puerto Rican Heritage Poster Series is a collection of five large posters that provide a brief historical chronology of Puerto Ricans in the United States and three posters that are historical and demographic maps that pictorially reflect Puerto Rican migration. As part of Centro’s Traveling Exhibits program, the posters are available to educational and not-for-profit organizations. The posters are also available for sale to the general public.

    This rich heritage series is designed to provide an attractive visual educational tool for teachers and others to use in classrooms or other public spaces, and to introduce students to and interest them in this significant piece of Puerto Rican and American history.
