First Domincan gang in NY?

Does any one know who possible could have started the first Domincan gang? I am sure it would have been in the Bronx or Washington Heights and probably in the early 80s to mid 80s. Anyone know?

There were several Dominican street gangs in NY in the '70's - Dominican Lions in the South Bronx. Galaxies and Saints in Washington Hts.

The first "important" Dominican gang was probably the Galaxies/Young Galaxies. They were one of the bigger gangs in Manhattan in the early 70's and they fought the Savage Skulls.

This info comes from the NY Gang History site.

ok first post..

i am dominican and my cousins are from washington heights, im from cypress hills BK

the cominican gangs i know of are
DDP
and Trinitarios
they both have beef against each other and i heard i started over some girl.

Trinitarios are newer and bang under a Lime green flag. they also say that DDP stands for Dame dos patadas. which means "give me two kicks" as an acronym.

i dont know much about DDPs but i am sure that they are older

An older Dominican lady I know (like in her 50's I think) was saying the PR's had their own gangs, which is well known, and used to give the new arriving Dominicans HELL when they first showed up. See the Dominicans were later to come over and they were disorganized. But she said proudly that they organized themselves and fought hard to earn respect in the hoods of BX, Harlem, etc. As far as the names I would not know if I get to ask her I will post.

ok i did alittle reesarch on DDP and 3ni and they are both old gangs,

DDPs have their own website which i forgot sorry.

they (DDP) are trying to start peace with the 3nis mainly because they are both dominican, they say that banging on your own pride and shedding your own blood is useless. other gangs would beg to differ.
