Little Haiti Personal Injury Law Firm

With living conditions deteriorating in Haiti during the 1970s, Haitian residents fled their country to the United States in search of a better life. Thousands of residents landed in Miami between the late 1970s and 1980s, ultimately settling in Lemon City. As time progressed, the large Haitian population began to build and shape the neighborhood into an extension of the country that they fled. Soon, the neighborhood became known as Little Haiti, an affectionate name representing the plight of residents who fled their homes in search of a better life.

Remnants of Haitian culture can be seen throughout their streets, as the buildings are painted with bright, tropical colors and decorated with vibrant murals and artwork. Haitian-owned restaurants and coffee shops filled the neighborhood, offering visitors a slice of Haiti through the smells and taste of Creole spices and cuisine. Notably, there are no large retail chains in Little Haiti as local businesses, shops, and restaurants line the streets. Attractions, such as the Little Haiti Cultural Complex and the Caribbean Marketplace, offer a slice of Haitian culture through their programs, events, and music.

The city has the highest percentage of Creole-speaking residents in the country, with over 47% of its 34,000 residents citing Creole as the primary language spoken at home. Little Haiti is primarily a lower income area. Many residents do not own cars with over 38% relying on public transportation. For those working outside of the city, the average commute time to work is high, averaging almost 45 minutes. Residents of Little Haiti are employed in many different professions, with sales and service being the most common, followed by manufacturing and manual labor. The housing in Little Haiti is a collection of smaller 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings, many of which were converted from larger Victorian style homes. Most of the homes and buildings were constructed between 1940 and 1969. Little Haiti has a high percentage of rental real estate at slightly over 85%.
