Photo expose of Village West

This photo from 1890, provided by HistoryMiami, shows original Bahamian immigrants outside the Barnacle boathouse, which is still there today.  It's the yellow structure down at the water's edge.

It's from a photo expose in The Huffington Post by the Associated Press titled "South Florida's First Black Neighborhood is Struggling." You can see that here.

Nice pictures. It is really sad what is happening in the West Grove neighborhood. By the way, why the Domino's park is closed?

One report said soil contamination. Closed until testing can be done.

People should study Miami's history. There were many pioneers who deserve respect. There are people who are trying to take away or diminish Miami's historic names. Shame.

My neighbor purchased an original Grove home on York Street/Ave? and spend about $300,000.00, total to renovate to a new condition, lost his investment big time & was saddened by a lack of support to renovate our history & had to move back to the Carolina's with his wife and 2 children.

African Americans are trying to protect historic names like Little River, Lemon City, Buena Vista from aggressive Haitians who want to brand their name on top of historic Miami neighborhoods.
