This area is screaming for a name... all the city lines just blend together down there.

Any suggestions if not? The "Triangle?"
The Triangle is that really bad part of Opa Locka, IIRC.

"No Cubans in Carol City" I live in Illinois and by page 17 of this post I knew there were def Cubans there. I laughed even louder when you gave the breakdown. Too funny

Default Carol Cuban City


There are no Cubans in Carol City.

Miami Springs is far from a dump.


Hahahaha.. No Cubans in Carol City???

West Carol City is 100% Cuban! Well, maybe 90% Cuban 10% Puertorican

I had a friend who lived near 67th and Miami Gardens drive.

His neighbors were all Cuban gang-members, mostly Marielitos.

Cubans don't want to think Carol City is Cuban because it has a bad reputation. They wan't to think it is mostly black when it is ceratainly NOT. Do a myspace search or do a demographic lookup and you will see that most of Carol City is Cuban. They are the largest ethnic group there, no if's, and's or but's. Carol City is mostly Cuban!

Miami Springs IS a dump. It's bordered by scarry Okeechobee Rd., Hialeah, the noisy Airport and 826. It's a host for ghetto clubs like club Zima and so on. Does that sound like "fine living" to you? Oh yeah.. It's also cuban so I guess it can't be a dump. Right!!!!
Miami springs is just as ghetto as Miami Gardens, Miami Lakes and sweetwater. I guess If you compare it to neighboring Hialeah it is "fine living". Miami folks really don't know much about decent neighborhoods since their only point of reference is Coral Gables, with it's high congestion and crime ridden streets. Travel elsewhere and you will see just how ghetto Miami springs and Coral Gables really are. I am originally from Denver, CO, but I also lived in Weston, FL for many years. What you get for a half a million in Miami is a disgrace! Half that amount buys you "real" fine living in Colorado, without the crime, litter, noise and low living standards.

My wife is African-American and she got tired of being called a "negro" by Cuban refugees. Colombians seem alot less racist and way more educated than Cubans. We never had problems with Colombians. Venezuelans are also decent.

Bad areas, with high levels of concentrated poverty and all the related problems like high crime, prostitution, drugs, delapidated neighborhoods, etc., include Overtown, Liberty City, Bunche Park, Opa Locka, Carol City, Miami Gardens, the western parts of North Miami and North Miami Beach, south and west Hialeah (although Hialeah is not as dangerous as the other areas, there are high levels of property crime like burglary and some other crimes like assault and armed robbery), Allapattah, Goulds, Perrine, parts of Cutler Ridge, Richmond Heights, parts of Little Haiti and Little Havana, the ungentrified parts of the Design District and Wynwood and various other unincorporated areas of Dade county.
This is THE most accurate post.

What area is better for a family with a young toddler who likes to walk in the neighborhood. Hollywood Hills, Hollywood Lakes or Miami Shores? These three areas seem to be 'family oriented'.
