The population of New York City is approaching the milestone of being one-third Hispanic, a demographic transformation that will have a huge impact on the city's culture, daily life and its very future. This marks a new phase in New York's relations to the Hispanic world, as Latino cultures and the Spanish language become an ubiquitous and important presence in the city. The roots of this transformation run deep. The history of the city's ties to the Spanish-speaking world is as old as New Amsterdam itself, and is largely unknown. These publications will for the first time make visible these connections and the myriad ways in which they have shaped the city for more than four centuries.

Editorial Reviews

From the New York Times:
Something unusual happens as you work through “Nueva York (1613-1945),” which opens on Friday at El Museo del Barrio

Instead of viewing the city and its past along an East-West axis…the exhibition rotates our attention 90 degrees... We look along the North-South axis, toward Mexico, the Caribbean and South America. New York Times(Sept 17 2010-Jan 09 2011)
