  1. A word that means New York Puerto Rican, obviously coming from a combination of the two terms. The Puerto Rican presence in the New York area is huge. People will sometimes use Nuyorican to refer to the Spanish spoken by Puerto Ricans in New York, which can be quite distinctive. Posted by: Anonymous on Dec 11, 2008 (0) (0)
