In recent years, there seems to have been alot of interest in New Jersey, particularly the area along its eastern shore. For years, New Jersey was relegated as sort of the second class cousin to its huge metropolis across the Hudson River, New York City. But in recent years, many communities have emerged from being mere bedroom communities to destinations where you can find many opportunities for shopping, nice restaurants, and cultural events. Of particular interest to me is Union City, NJ. Union City is located directly across from Manhattan. Since the early 1960s, Union City has been home to the largest Cuban American population outside of Miami, FL. In fact, it has earned the nickname, "Havana On The Hudson." New York has long supported a fairly large Cuban community for many decades, I have found that the Cuban community of Union City, however, almost mirrors that of Little Havana in Miami. Walking along Union City's main street, Bergeline Avenue, I have found a very similar ambience to what I find in Miami's Calle Ocho (the main drag of Little Havana). There are numerous Cuban restaurants, coffee stands, and all kinds of other businesses which are owned and run by Cubans. When it comes to Cuban restaurants in Union City, you know that you are getting the real deal and not an approximation of the cuisine which is typical in the big city across the Hudson. While Union City is still home to the largest concentration of Cubans outside of Miami, Cubans are no longer the majority of its hispanic population. When I walk along Bergeline Avenue these days, I've observed an emerging presence from Latin Americans countries everywhere. This new population has gradually replaced Cuban businesses.
