“Culture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

I work not too far, therefore, i have occasion to drive through often. The neighborhood is essentially a low income area with a lot of soul. I have always felt relatively safe in the area and the you will experience the Haitian Culture. Haitians are hard working loving people. There are some typical restaurants, book stores and lots of Haitian art and lively colors. You will enjoy the experience as it will take you out of the ordinary. Have fun.

“Bad neighborhood!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

Good place to go and get good krio and fried platain. Must go during the day time to avoid getting mug or rob. The street and business need remodeling extensively.

“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.
