Dominicans in Arizona.. Where are you!?
My family and I moved here from NYC 8 months ago, we have slowly convinced members of our family to move here too. We would really like to get together with other Dominicans but not sure where to look. Also I would like to know if any business establishments have been opened by Dominicans (dominican food, hair salons, etc?)
How are dominicans moving here to arizona able to find the products and services they are used to?
Let me know. Thanks

Dominican in Arizona
Hey there NYCDominican, I'm a fellow New York City Dominican. My family and I moved here from New Jersey in October, 2004. Interesting you should ask about the Dominican population out here. There are lots of East Coasters out here and they miss our Dominican food. Thinking about opening up a "Floridita" style Dominican restaurant. Shoot me an email, interested in hearing how you guys are adjusting to Arizona.
That must be a big adjustment... NYC/Jersey to Arizona...
We are here!!!
I am a Dominican from NY and along w/about 200 other dominicans in the east valley. We all live around Mesa, Gilbert and Queen Creek area. We have family members with a car dealer, Allstate insurance agencies(3) and a restaurant in scottsdale serving dominican cuisine on thurs and sundays. Shoot me an e-mail if you'd like to meet or talk: firstname.lastname@example.org
If by any chance you still reside in AZ, would you mind sharing your knowledge of any good hair dressers that you have been privy to?
I moved to AZ approximately ten years ago from NYC, and have been blessed to call the North East Valley home since then. Although I love living here in sunny AZ, I miss the essence of what makes our culture so unique: the food, our great music, and the feeling you get when you surrounded by a close Dominican community.
I have had a Puerto Rican hairstylist who was ironically from NYC as well, but he will be moving to CA for the opportunity of a lifetime. So although I am a ten year AZ veteran, I feel like I am starting from scratch all over again when it comes to my hair care needs. Any feedback you may have would definitely be appreciated and welcomed.
Im new to arizona
I just moved here from Los Angeles, CA. Im puerto rican and black but I think of Domincans as my brothers and sisters too. I just wanted to know If there was any rican/ domincan presence in Phoenix, AZ. I live in Glendale.
I am Puerto Rican but have always been around Dominicans. I have run into a few out here in Surprise & El Mirage. I have heard that a couple of Dominican guys work at the barber shop down the street from me. I would def like to meet some people. It would be nice to be around people that are more like me
There was mention of a Dominican restaurant in Scottsdale? Could someone give me more info on that, or any other restaurant in the east valley? My fiance (he's dominican I am not) moved here for me and I know he misses the food and having his family and friends around. I would love to be able to find a place to take him as a surprise!
