All too often it seems that safe, well-kept areas of Miami-Dade are called "ghetto," "dirty," "third-world," and "run-down" - all of which are usually reserved to describe undesirable areas. I've put together a series of Street View images to show these areas in a different light. Please feel free to respond with comments and other images.

North Hialeah is a very middle class area. Here are a few more images of the area:

1. That to me looks half nice, half working class Hialeah, but not that bad. That particular home wouldn't be out of place in Boca !
2. That looks exactly like east Miramar.
3. Seems hit and miss, some really nice properties and others with the "typical" Hialeah look.
4. That is a very nice neighborhood, again, very Coral Springs.

What was surprising is the lack of burglar bars on ANY of those homes! Usually a paved front lawn= burglar bars.

I love your comments! What do you think of my first set of the places other than Hialeah? Isn't Kendall ghetto and third-world looking?

Sweetwater is the prince of "no speakie English".... the king of "no speakie English" has to be the Flagler corridor west of downtown to about SW 17 Ave. In your honest opinion (let's be serious for a second!), in what truly middle class area (obviously not Sweetwater, east Hialeah, Flagler, etc.) have you experienced the most "no speakie English"?

You put street views of mostly solidly middle class/estabished areas of Miami. 80% of Hispanic people do not live in those areas. The larger the trees, or the more the trees, the nicer the area in Miami, and the more acculturated/assimilated the area is (rule of thumb). Post 1960's Hispanics have a habit of eradicating vegitation in Miami. Hence, Hialeah, Sweetwater, Westchester, Flagler, and West Miami, as well as Doral. That review of Doral by Forbes was lucicrous.

We could both get into a picture race on here, but I trust that you know what I'm talking about. The "newer the area", you will hear less English spoken and see fewer trees (as well as more cars parked in the front lawn).

Actually, I avoided the areas that are known as "nice" by Miami City-Data forumers because the point was to cover nice areas that are commonly called "no speakie English" by people on this forum. I didn't bother to post Pinecrest, Coral Gables, Key Biscayne, Miami Beach, East Kendall, South Miami, Miami Lakes, Sunset, Glenvar Heights, Brickell, etc. because rarely does anyone attack them as "no speakie English". I also did not post areas that in general are NOT well-kept, like most of Sweetwater, much of Hialeah, much of Homestead, Miami Gardens, etc. The average Miami-Dade resident lives in places like West Kendall, Coral Terrace, and West Miami.... admittedly not in Key Biscayne but not in Allapatah either...

More established areas = more Anglos and 1960's/1970's Cubans and their children. Brand new areas = very "Hispanic," mostly from South America. I'll give you that. However, even though I do not like many of the new areas due to that they are tacky sprawl, most of the properties are kept up very nicely. I will post a few pictures, and I promise you I did not hand-pick them for "niceness." I spent less than 60 seconds finding them, and think they are representative of the far-west "new" area out by SW 157 and SW 167 Avenues.
