There are many neighborhoods where Spanish is spoken in the homes, on the streets, in the stores, and in the schools. We visit Marc Anthony’s barrio in Brooklyn, New York. His parents came from Puerto Rico and he takes us to see the murals, the stores, the subway and the people of his neighborhood.
