Most houses in Miami do have open spaces and are pretty large lots in my opinion when compared to other county suburbs..

Pinecrest, South Miami, Kendall, Westchester, North Miami, Palmetto Bay all have huge lots.
what do you mean ajoin each other

I thought I read or heard some where from a credible source that hialeah is amongst or "the" city in the U.S with the lowest crime rate or something like that.

As far as Pinecrest, Coral Gables, Palmetto Bay, Coconut Grove all these areas have there good and bad areas
on a basis of frequent crime and the aesthetic looks of homes.

I've been around these areas plenty and I know them well. As for Indian Creek, Bal Harbor not to familiar with them.

And I think some one said south miami is run down. Again just like many areas in south florida their are its good and bad areas. I have driven through south miami plenty as well plus have family withing this part of town. And it is really ,really nice. The particular home my family member lives in looks like it should be inside one of those interior design magazines. Funny thing is though if you drive say 7 minutes of track you'll be dead center in the ghetto.

Like to add a quick note. A while back I had run into a guy while I was in hialeah. he had asked me for a favor and I was like sorry I can't do that. He looked at me and told me do I really look like I would do you wrong. And I replied. Its not personal its just this place isn't exactly beverly hills and all is hunk dory. He replies" man,to me this place is like beverly hills".

Personally like I said there are the nice and bad areas in many cities but the area I was in is was a little glim(being it was very early noon if you catch my drift)with a lot of thugish and other worldly looking figures walking around.

So personally when in this area I tend not to feel to comfortable. And when I heard the statistic about hialeah being lowest in crime of all u.s suburbs I was at really at aw.

Hehe, I know. There's a small lower middle class section of Palmetto Bay and some working/lower middle class apartment complexes in Coral Gables, but Pinecrest is entirely affluent; if there's a "not as nice" section, it is news to me!

you are correct. Pinecrest is totally affluent, with the exception of a few apartment complexes, which are nicely kept.

I lived in Hialeah at a walking distance from Hitching Post, not far from the river. Hialeah is Marianao, "the City that Progress", Mud and factoria, Hialeah.
Back then the place was inhabited by guajiros and rednecks, also a lot of bikers and strange characters with tatoos that used to hang around strip joint.

But has Hialeah retained its Cubaness? No

For the most part my semi green thumb has allowed me to bask in the beauty of the various trees, shrubs, flowers and bushes that I have planted. My particular neighborhood is very quiet as there is restricted access from the main road. For the most part the iron bars are gone. Overall it's a good palce to live.

Hialeah is the City that Progress, just like Marianao once was. Mud and Factoria, Hialeah. Thousands of Cubans worked at sweatshops to put their kids through college.

Bear no doubt that the place will become a nice Cuban-American city. I hope that the city still retains its cubaness. Quite sad to hear attacks to Hialeah and to Cuban-Americans living there from blowgun toting mongoloid seƱoritas that nobody called and nobody wants.
