Our Communities

The collective word to describe our coverage and circulation area is...

"Growing"

All over South Florida, there is evidence of population and business growth. Many Black-owned businesses are dotting the landscape to service the new residents. The Miami Times continues to offer people a way to find out more about where to live, where to educate their children and how to connect.

Some of our neighborhoods are very distinct. Here are some highlights.
The largest Black community in the state can be found in Miami Gardens. No more evident are the signs of growth than here. Several national chains and small businesses have made Miami Gardens home. They join a renovated Hard Rock Stadium as well as Florida Memorial University, South Florida’s only historically Black college. Jazz in the Gardens, Miami Gardens signature estival, continues to draw upwards of 65,000 people annually.

Nearby Opa-locka is home to an Amazon fulfillment center as well as an executive airport. The city is home to the largest collection of Moorish architecture in the country. North Miami has a large enclave of upwardly mobile Haitian Americans, who are also politically empowered. The Biscayne Bay Campus of Florida International University calls North Miami home. The university sits on 200 acres and services about 7,000 students.

In the center of the county, the communities of Overtown, Liberty City, Brownsville, Allapattah, Little Haiti, West Little River, Coconut Grove and downtown Miami are all undergoing explosive growth. WorldCenter Miami, the second-largest urban development in the country, is expected to be completed by 2021. The $2 billion mixed retail-housing-entertainment project, sits on the edge of Overtown on 27 acres. The re-development of Liberty Square will bring a mixed-income, mixed-use community that is a result of a public-private partnerships, a business model favored by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

In the southernmost part of Miami-Dade, sits historic Richmond Heights, Goulds, Florida City and Homestead, solid neighborhoods with generational families. In Broward County, cities such as Miramar, Hollywood, Plantation and Fort Lauderdale, have Black families who engage in cultural activities, such as visiting the Miramar Cultural Center or attending lectures at the African-American Research Library and Cultural Center.
