Abstract: In recent years sociologists have detailed the dispersion of the United States’ foreign and native born Latinos into areas which have historically had small, and in some cases, nearly nonexistent, Latino populations. This dispersion has altered racial/ethnic relations in some regions, and in others, has effected changes in the political arena. This dispersion is particularly evident in the New York metro area where the Latino populations of inner-ring suburbs and exurban areas of Long Island and the lower Hudson Valley have increased dramatically since 1990. Using data from the American Community Survey and the US Census this study demonstrates the changing profile of Latinos in the New York City metro area. This paper provides an analysis of the differences in nativity status and national origin that exist among Latinos in the NYC metro area. Distinct differences emerge in national origin group which may suggest varied trajectories of assimilation or contexts of reception based on background characteristics. Furthermore, among foreign-born Latinos, length of residence in the United States is related to proximity to New York City such that more-recently arrived immigrants are less dispersed than native-born Latinos or those who have been in the United States for a longer period of time. The consequences of these findings will be discussed in relation to recent developments in literature on new immigrant destinations as well as prior research on the role of residential integration in immigrant assimilation.

Abstract: New York City (NYC) is located in the northeastern section of the United States. The metropolis spans a little over 300 square miles. It consists of five boroughs (the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, and Staten Island) and is home to 8.5 million residents of whom 3 million are im/migrants ( In an effort to meet the growing needs of his diverse constituents on June 16, 2014, New York State Senator Gustavo Rivera (33rd Senate District) proposed the “New York is Home Act.” The bill (S7897) would extend New York State citizenship, with all its due processes, protections, and rights to a large majority of the city’s undocumented residents. To date, the bill has passed the Senate and the Assembly and is in route to New York State’s governor, Andrew Cuomo. NYC’s Mayor, Bill de Blasio, serves as the Chancellor of city’s public school system – the largest in the nation. He oversees the education of 1.1 million children who speak more than 176 different languages (Roberts, 2010). This manuscript will examine the challenges, possibilities, and promise of im/migration as it relates to NYC’s school leaders and school children.
