A significant milestone in Nueva York studies as an interdisciplinary, multinational field with hemispheric and transatlantic scope.

...should be required reading for anyone interested in the study of people of Latin American descent in New York.
(Ramona Hernandez Latino Studies
This fine sourcebook takes us on a lively, thoughtful tour of a city that many writers, artists, and cultural historians have long known but have found hard to define. With a breadth of vision that reminds us America is two continents, Remeseira has gathered a prime selection of writers and thinkers to present a kaleidoscopic, complex whole. Hispanic New York emerges as a hybrid space, a juncture where Hispanics, Latinos, Latin Americans, or any other nation-specific name they choose to call themselves may understand their past and transform it into new cultural forms.
