New York has always been known for its diversity because of the successive waves of immigration that came to the New World.

There are about a hundred different nationalities in New York. That’s why New York is such a fantastic melting pot!
It has often been described as the largest Irish city in the world.
And at the same time, it is the largest Jewish community: there are more Jews here than in Israel.
The Italian community is pretty large too. Most Italians live in Little Italy, in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, very close to Chinatown.
The majority of the Chinese live in Chinatown but there are also many Chinese in Queens. They came in America after the Civil War to work on railway lines and in mines.
Many of the Eastern Europeans for instance, Ukrainians, Poles, Lithuanians, Russians came here after World War II and settled in Brooklyn.
The Latinos represent quite a large proportion of the population. Puerto Ricans, Cubans, Colombians and other Latin Americans form about one fifth of the city’s population. Most of the Puerto Ricans are in the Bronx but you’ll also find many in East Harlem in the area called El Barrio. Poverty and unemployment are a problem there. African Americans have also contributed to the character of the city.
The black community has produced famous writers and of course jazz musicians. And yet, many African Americans who live in Harlem and in the Bronx are poor and destitute and many still suffer from racism.
