Cuban NYC is centered in Union City, New Jersey.
Cuba is the sacred heart of Latin culture in the Americas because it was Spain’s main colonial port. Whatever happened in Cuba spread across the Spanish Americas.
In modern times American gangsters took over Cuba so it expelled the Americans which earned it great respect across Latin America.
A lot of Latin music and Latin dance is originally Cuban. Rumba is the root.

Cuban culture has a big influence on the world, far beyond its size. A lot of Caribbean culture is really Cuban culture. During the Colonial Period, Havana was one corner of the triangular trade, so whatever happened in Cuba spread across the Spanish Americas and even influenced Spain. Later, standing up to the Americans gave Cuba a unique credibility.
