"BRAZILIAN BOUND NEWARK AREA"???

Isn't it called "Ironbound"?

And isn't it mostly people from Portugal rather than Brazil?

Newjerseyite-It is about 1/2 Portugese 1/2 Brazilian right now, with Hispanics coming in 3rd. The Portugese and the Portugese-Americans aren't to happy with the Brazilian population growing so rapidly there from what I hear most of the time.

I live in South Jersey now and I guess it's been quite some time since I've been "Down Neck" in Ironbound.

I don't remember a lot of Brazilians back then, certainly not anywhere near as many as Portuguese. Although I *do* remember a really good Brazilian restaurant on Market street, the name of which escapes me at the moment.

Are the Brazilians mixed in with the Portuguese, or have they stuck to one particular area?

The next time I'm up North I'll have to reacquaint myself with the neighborhood.

Well anyway, good luck with your quest for love.
Don't exclude the Portuguese and other Latina girls, I'm sure there are still plenty of nice ones there!

The Brazilians and the Portuguese are mixed as goes for the iron bound. Brazilians tend to be more open and party oriented. Portguese( like most Europeans) are shy and keep to themselves. That is one reason why they don't get along. They don't really hate each other, it's more like they try to ignore each other in a strange way. I can go to a bar or local hang out and see the difference between the 2 cultures. I tend to favor the Brazilians because I'm a open person that likes to talk to people, however, the Portugues has there good qualties.

I know the Elizabeth/Newark area and it's people very well. I'm really waiting for it to become fully Brazilianized. Some areas may be a bit scummy at the moment but there is tremendous growth especially in the housing.
