Chilean NYC is in Queens and in Paterson, New Jersey. Metro New York City has the largest Chilean community in the United States.
Chile is a mix of Indigenous, European and African cultures. The Indigenous culture is of Inca descent in the north and Mapuche in the south. Easter Island is Chilean, but the people are Rapa Nui Pacific Islanders. Chile’s European culture is mostly Spanish with some German influence.
Chile has a highly developed copper export economy. It is famous for its writers and its wines. Pablo Neruda had a way with words that will make you fall in love with the Spanish language. Chile also has a strong avant-garde theatre tradition and some world-class filmmakers.
Chileans had to deal with the American-supported Pinochet dictatorship (1973-1990). The experience still effects the people – even in the diaspora. It’s quite striking really.
