An industrial city in NE New Jersey. It is more like a small town with a mirrored image of New York City. It has the highest Hispanic percentage in the state with Cubans owning everything (supermarkets, restaurants, stores, etc.). It has more Cubans per square mile than Miami or even Havana. There are other Hispanics as well like the Dominicans, Salvadorans, and Ecuadorians but they are still the minority since they don't have much power or ownership. Most businesses (even Chinese restaurants) have signs in Spanish since many do not know English. The kids are mainly spigga
s or hot Latinas though there are some rockers.
Ah, the smell of Cuban food, the not too frequent gangs, old men with guayabera shirts, an abundant supply of Materva, cigar factories, Spanish spoken everywhere, Celia Cruz Way, the skyline of Manhattan, Bergenline (pronounced Bergelain by locals) and the ghetto downtown...I love Union City.
