ARGENTINA, URUGUAY, BRAZIL, PARAGUAY
By José Hernandez (1872)
Argentina experienced significant European immigration in the 1800s, at the same time as New York City had big bursts of growth. We both have deep Italian cultural influences. Back in the day, rich Italians migrated to Argentina, poor ones moved to New York. Most of the Spaniards came from Galicia.
Argentine rockers have been one of the major influences on the development of Latin rock, including in the United States. Argentine New Yorkers also stand out in the classical arts of orchestral music, opera and ballet. Many NYC film presenters have some Argentine filmmakers on staff.
