“Just a hood”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2012

Considering years ago you couldn't drive through this neighborhood without getting shot at, what the Haitian community has done is remarkable. Still, it's just another Miami neighborhood, with not much to see except the MOCA (Miami Museum of Contemporary Art)

“Another interesting neighborhood in Miami”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

Nothing much. Just like Calle Ocho, its worth a view, and passing through. If you are from Haiti, maybe you should stop by and try the local cuisine, in case you're missing home. The neighborhood needs some investment / improvement, but they're working on it.

“Go, just dont take a bus or taxi there!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2012

Only go down here in a car everything is so spread out that if you take a bus or taxi there is no one place to go. Little Haiti is a very dangerous part of Miami but during the day you should be fine! You are either going to like it or not like it at all. Dont plan a whole day here only a couple hours!

“Run down”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2012

Nothing to see here but a bunch of run down buildings in a large section that Haitians care little about maintaining. Pretty sad... sad that I live near it and have to drive through it all the time too.
