This list contains the U.S. cities with the most Puerto Ricans. These cities have a lot of Puerto Rican residents, which truly allows for a real Puerto Rican community to be formed in the United States. It's a bit surprising to see Los Angeles at the bottom of this list.

What cities have the largest Puerto Rican population in the United States? No one should be all that surprised to New York City at the top of the list. Puerto Ricans have been flocking to New York for years and the vibrant Puerto Rican population encourages others to join them as well.
