North Miami Florida Culture
This fall, we are launching a series of special events for residents of North Miami-Dade County and visitors to the South Florida area.
MOCA has commissioned us to curate a dynamic exhibition that showcases only works by artists from South Florida who live and work in North Miami-Dade County and other parts of the state. Join a free family day and collect works from all participating museums in South Florida. Join this free, family-friendly day at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Miami Beach.
Examples are the Museum of Contemporary Art Miami Beach, the Art Institute of Miami and the Miami Art Museum. The walk is also a good opportunity for a walk through the museum's collection of works by artists from around the state and beyond.
Most streets in Miami correspond to this nomenclature, but there are a few exceptions that should be noted. Note: When entering Broward County, the streets are ranked according to whether South Beach is the most expensive, while the residential areas of Miami Beach may be the cheapest. Fort Lauderdale's downtown is generally the same in the east and west, but very different in the north and south.
Many of Miami's neighborhoods have been around for centuries, while other neighborhoods of Miami did not have an African-American population until the early 1960s. The Haitian population grew and grew in Miami-Dade and Broward County, two communities known for their large Haitian population. Other predominantly black neighborhoods are in South Miami, a part that is the only black community within the city limits of Miami. In nearby Brownsville (Brown Sub), what is now 15th Avenue has become the largest black neighborhood in the entire state of Florida and the second largest in North Florida.
To the south, the city borders Golden Glades Drive and 166th Street, to the north 15th Avenue and South Miami Boulevard to the east.
North Miami was originally called the city of Miami Shores because its eastern border was the Atlantic Ocean. The area was listed as the "City of Miami Shore" in 1894, renamed "City" of North Miami in 1931. In 1951, it was reported nationwide that it was the fastest growing city in the state of Florida with a population of 1.5 million people.
A devastating hurricane in 1926 halted Miami's growth and temporarily plunged the city and Miami Beach into recession. Haitian refugees fleeing the devastation of Haiti after World War II (unspecified) changed the demographics of North Miami, which began with a population of about 1.5 million, most of whom fled to Miami. Demographically, North Miami Beach is the second largest city in Florida after Miami-Dade County and has the highest proportion of foreign-born Americans in the population.
Of the residents of North Miami Beach, 27.3% have a college degree, 21.2% have a college degree, 23.5% of the population (or about 1.4 million people) have a college degree, and 27% (3.7 million) of the residents of North Miami Beach have a college degree. Conveniently, the Community College also has locations throughout Miami and has the highest percentage of undergraduate students or higher in the state of Florida. All these services are available at pick-up and drop-off points throughout the city of Miami - Dade County.
Many major bus lines run through North Miami Beach, including the S bus, which connects downtown Miami and Miami Beach and ends at the Aventura Mall in north Miami Dade. Tri-rail trains connect to the University of Miami Medical Center and Miami International Airport. Please note that the South Florida Regional Transit Authority (SFTTA) bus leaves from the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) office on the south side of downtown.
If you're looking for a free concert in Miami, the Miami Jazz Film Society offers free concerts every Friday and Saturday in North Miami Beach. Car rental is cheap and cars are very convenient in Miami, so if you plan to stay at one of the many hotels and motels in the area, such as South Beach, you will find rental cars that are cheap.
The South Florida Cultural Consortium is a regional initiative led by the Miami-Dade County Department of Education and the Florida Department of Culture. The consortium includes local cultural agencies from all five boroughs, including the City of Miami, the University of Florida, Florida State University and Florida Atlantic University. High school students and colleges offer joint degrees offered by the North Miami Beach College of Arts and Sciences, a joint program in the humanities, humanities and social sciences.
