The Latinos in Spanish Harlem (also known as El Barrio) are mostly Puerto Rican but recent years have brought a dramatic increase in Dominicans and Mexicans who are revitalizing the neighborhood. Spanish Harlem played an essential role in the birth of salsa music and continues to be a center of Latino culture in New York City. Cultural institutions include El Museo del Barrio which was founded to represent Latino culture of the Caribbean and Latin America.
