“Partially Abandond Ghetto! (LOTS OF CRIME!!!!!)”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Be careful, I live just outside of Wynwood (east of it) (on the right side of the tracks). Wynwood is downright scary. Yes there are some art galleries, no they are not nice store fronts. They are in dilapidated heavily graffitied warehouses. The area is surrounded on 3 sides by some of the most dangerous ghettos in Florida. Constant crime area, I would not suggest anyone walk alone, or in a group in this neighborhood (I use the term loosely). 95% warehouse and 5% crackhouse Wynwood could use a wrecking ball! Stay away!!!! Dirty, Scary, and Dangerous!

“Don't go at Night”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Although the area is well lit in the evening, the area is rather scary to walk in after dark. The walls were painted very uniquely, but it would have been nice for there to be some sort of guide or description of the walls/artists. I guess I would have to visit again in the daylight to see if I felt more positive about it.

“Artsy side of Miami”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

Recently did the Art Walk two weeks ago and I was amazed at the variety of art available for viewing, what really amazed me was the mobs of people walking around at night. The attraction is the large number of galleries and the artist that they represent. I couldn't believe that this was Miami, usually you would expect to see something like this in NYC, in fact it reminded me of NYC's village many years ago. The atmosphere is vibrant with food trucks available for a quick bite as you take a break from walking through the gallaries. The area is developing and needs restaurants, but you could travel a little further North to the design district if your looking for some really good eats. Would suggest that you get to the area early because parking is difficult to find and parking lots are expensive ($10 for a spot in an empty field).

“Wynwood Art Walk”

The Wynwood Art Walk is really fun. There were tons of art gallerys to check out and the street was lined with food trucks which I love. Worth checking out!
