Union City,NJ

I took these back in June-August....
Union City is the largest Hispanic city in NJ with 84% of residents listing there backgrounds as Cubans , Dominicans & Ecuadorians. Recently a new wave of diversity started moving in that included....Arabs , Koreans , Asian Indians.... Union City is the Densiet City in the US with 53,000 people packed per mile. The Cities population is squeezed into 2-5 story row houses and apartments , taller condos have recently gone up. The City is well connected into the Regional Transportation grid by Buses and Light Rail in its core.

nice!
so this must be a multi-cultural city and one good thing about that
is there's lots of food choices offered in restaurants.

I have families residing in New Jersey and have relatives in Union City, NJ but they reside away from the city center in single detached homes. I used to reside for a brief period in Union City back in 1985. I don't recall having seen many signs in Spanish back then though.

It started becoming Hispanic in the late 1980s....
