Gentrification is changing too much of the landscape

“Little Havana used to be a quiet neighborhood where you could walk down Eighth Street from Home Depot calmly,” the sprightly Pabon says in rapid-fire Spanish.. “Now there’s traffic all the time and cars are clogging the streets. It’s too commercial. What has happened here is a catastrophe. This is no longer for us. We’re tired of it.”

This quote comes from a story in today's Miami Herald about the fast changes going on in Little Havana. 

Sound familiar? I know many people in Coconut Grove feel the same way - development has ruined our quiet village. I know that there are those who like the change and like the increase in their property values due to the construction and new projects.

This Little Havana story, These Little Havana residents want out — so they’re selling their condos for $5.2 million, is in today's Miami Herald.
