Student Bio

Hello, everyone! My name is Nicole Patrick. In three words, I would describe myself as organized, kind, and determined. I am a senior at Florida International University and its Honors College studying Hospitality & Tourism Management with a combined Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in the subject. Born and raised in Pembroke Pines, Florida, I did not venture much into Miami before FIU. Nevertheless, FIU has brought me to Miami and taught me the positives and negatives of South Florida. With taking Miami In Miami (2019-2020) and Art Society Conflict (2018-2019) with Professor John W Bailly, I have learned to see a location from what it is and to not be afraid to also criticize it. For my Ineffable Miami project, I chose to focus on the neighborhood of Allapattah. Learn more about Allapattah below.

It lies five miles east of Miami International Airport and less than a mile and a half from Downtown. It has an elevation of 10 feet above sea level. The neighborhood of Allapattah is surrounded by various highways and the Miami River: the Airport Expressway (SR 112) to the north, the Miami River and the Dolphin Expressway (SR 836) to the south, I-95 to the east, and Northwest 27th Avenue (SR 9) to the west (“Allapattah”).

In close distance to the center of the City of Miami, Allapattah is a highly developed urbanized neighborhood with limited green spaces. Its streets consist of residential housing, businesses, and warehouses.

History

Allapattah is one of Miami’s oldest neighborhoods. Its name is derived from the Seminole language word which means alligator (“Allapattah”).

The community began in 1856 and was an agricultural region in the early 20th century (“Allapattah – One Of Miami’s Fastest Growing Neighborhoods”). The neighborhood’s predominately white, Deep Southern culture ended in the late 1950s. At that time, Interstate Highway 95 was being built in Overtown, which displaced the large black population. Also, blacks living in Liberty City and Brownsville started migrating south to Allapattah (“Allapattah”). In the 1960s, Cubans began moving into the neighborhood as a result of the Cuban Revolution. Then, in the 1980s, the neighborhood became a magnet for Dominicans, Nicaraguans, and later Haitians (“Allapattah”). The large Dominican population characterized the region as Little Santo Domingo, after the capital of the Dominican Republic.

The federal government’s “war on poverty” in the 1960s, caused a growth in the size of the Miami government. Soon, institutions of the correction system, courts, and medical facilities were built in and around Allapattah. The quick addition of these facilities created more jobs in the neighborhood but also introduced byproducts of the rapid neighborhood and industrial change, such as homelessness (“Allapattah”).

In 1997, the City of Miami designated Allapattah as an Empowerment Zone (EZ) neighborhood to give special eligibility for grants and loans to small businesses in the area. Allapattah’s location offers an opportunity to further promote its community and economic development strategy through the development of affordable homeownership in the neighborhood (Allapattah”). Allapattah’s housing stock has suffered from conversions of historic 1920s and 1930s single-family homes to rooming houses and un-permitted additions to existing housing units. Large concentrations of public housing and multi-family rental apartments have also hurt the surrounding residential areas, resulting in the gradual deterioration of the existing housing inventory (“Allapattah”).

However, there is a shift coming. The Miami Herald reported in 2015, “…home values in this working-class community are up nearly 24 percent, according to data collected by online real estate company Zillow. The Miami-Dade County average is 8.6 percent” (“Allapattah – One Of Miami’s Fastest Growing Neighborhoods”). This is due to its proximity to Miami International Airport, Downtown, Jackson Memorial Hospital, and other facilities (Dixon). Today, as you drive through Allapattah, you will see the tree-lined, residential streets and the diversity of its businesses and sounds.

The cost of living in Allapattah is 7% lower than the Miami average (“Allapattah, Miami, FL Cost Of Living”).

Interview with Connor Green on April 15, 2020

Nicole: Please introduce yourself and your relation to Allapattah.

Connor: My great grandfather, Roy Kopstein was a pillar in the Allapattah community. He started Miami Waste Paper, a cardboard recycling plant on 14th Street, and hired many Haitians and Dominicans who had just arrived to Miami. He often bought his workers cars and houses, and he made sure they were well taken care of. I began working there at the age of 16, and quickly adapted to the fast-paced life of Allapattah. Seeing the rich cultural background of Allapattah awed me, and working with the industrious residents inspired me. Although I haven’t lived in Allapattah, it is a place I feel at home.

Nicole: How would you describe Allapattah?

Connor: [It is] Industrial, thrifty, [and a] melting pot of various cultures (Dominican, Haitian, etc.)

Nicole: How would you describe the residents of Allapattah?

Connor: Most of the residents of Allapattah are victims of gentrification and lack of governmental assistance, yet their perseverance and persistence has led to Allapattah becoming one of the more beautiful cultural hot spots in South Florida. The residents are often industrious, family oriented, and diverse.

Nicole: What is your favorite thing about Allapattah?

Connor: My favorite thing about Allapattah is the diversity of cultures and cuisine throughout [the neighborhood].

Nicole: What is your least favorite thing about Allapattah?

Connor: Due to poverty and underfunding for financial assistance and drug rehab, some people may resort to nefarious acts for a source of income. Crime would be my least favorite aspect.

Nicole: Where do you see Allapattah in five years?

Connor: I believe the physical aspects of Allapattah will become more developed and luxurious. The city will prosper, although the residents will receive little of it. Miami multi-millionaires are investing in massive projects throughout Allapattah, which will bring added revenue. However, only an elite few will see the fruits of these spoils. The residents may be pushed out by higher land prices and taxes, also known as gentrification. Hopefully, lawmakers will set in action agreements to not increase prices for current residents as to not cause unneeded displacement or homelessness.

Halissee Hall

1475 NW 12th Avenue

Halissee Hall is a neo-classical style home built from 1912-1918 by architect George L. Pfeiffer. The house was built for and owned by John Sewell who was a prominent early merchant and Miami’s third mayor (“Halissee Hall”). The Neo-Classical style is an eclectic revival of Georgian, Adam, early Classical Revival, and Greek Revival architectural styles (“Neo-Classical [1893-c. 1940]”). The house was built on the highest point in the city, and its name comes from the Seminole word for New Moon. It was one of Miami’s most prominent houses. In 1932, it was acquired by the University of Miami. Throughout the years, the University of Miami School of Medicine and Jackson Memorial Hospital grew up around the former estate (“Halissee Hall”). Halissee Hall was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1974 (“Halissee Hall”). Today, you can find it in the midst of the large structures surrounding it.

The Alamo

1611 NW 12th Avenue

The Alamo is a Mediterranean Revival style hospital building that was built in 1916-1918 by architect August C. Geiger. This was the first hospital for the Miami City Hospital, which opened during the influenza epidemic of 1918. It is also Miami’s oldest surviving hospital building (“The Alamo”). At the time, it had 13 beds and a handful of employees (“Jackson’s Alamo Still Stands”). Its origin name is Miami City Hospital Building No. 1; however, the Spanish-inspired design resembled that of The Alamo in San Antonio, Texas. Thus, the building is referred to as The Alamo. Its Mediterranean Revival style defined Miami during the Boom of the 1920s. The style reflects the architectural influences of the Mediterranean coast: Italian, Byzantine, Moorish themes from southern Spain, and French (“Mediterranean Revival [1917-1930s]”). The Alamo was moved 476 feet to its current location in Allapattah in 1979 (“Jackson’s Alamo Still Stands”). In that same year, it was listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Currently, a museum of Jackson Memorial’s history is housed on the Alamo’s ground floor, with Jackson Health System’s Communication and Outreach Department on the second floor (“Jackson’s Alamo Still Stands”).

Corpus Christi Catholic Church

1779 NW 28th Street

Corpus Christi Catholic Church has been part of the inner-city community since 1941. Throughout the almost 80 years of its existence, the church has adapted with the different populations in the area. From the white population of the 1940s to the Cuban and Black community in the 1960s to the Dominican and Central American community in the 1980s, Corpus Christi Catholic Church has been there throughout it all. Since the area it serves is so large and most churchgoers do not have transportation, the church opened multiple missions. One of these being Mission Nuestra Señora de la Altagracia in Allapattah. The church offers many resources and opportunities for the blue collar population to solve humanitarian problems, such as free meals, donated clothes, and pathways to obtain legal status (“Our History”). Due to its leader Father José Luis Menéndez, the church has been able to bring the community together to slow the spread of gentrification, as they did in the 1990s with PortMiami wanting to convert homes into a storage area for trailers (Glasgow).

Then Miami Mayor Tomás Regalado stated at the opening, “Moore Park was an over-utilized and neglected park because of a lack of funds, but what the Orange Bowl Committee has done is given back to the community the place where the Orange Bowl all began.”

Juan Pablo Duarte Park, or Duarte Park for short, is located in the center of Allapattah.

Duarte Park also has the following amenities: baseball fields, playground, computer lab, shelters, soccer fields, dominos, and basketball court (“Juan Pablo Duarte Park”). Due to the strong Dominican influence in Allapattah, the park is named after the Dominican writer, activist, poet, military leader, and liberal politician who was the foremost of the “founding fathers” of the Dominican Republic (“Juan Pablo Duarte”). The park is one of Allapattah’s favorite hangout spots for locals. Large trees and grass offer a peaceful retreat from the city, while a small outdoor gym area and jogging trails provide a scenic place to get in a quick workout. A children’s playground and splash pad make the park perfect for families and kid-friendly events, while the fields often host good-natured games of baseball that sports fans are sure to enjoy (“Experience Allapattah”).

Metrorail

Miami-Dade Department of Transportation’s Metrorail has three stations in Allapattah: Civic Center, Santa Clara, and Allapattah. The neighborhood also is home to Miami’s Civic Center Health District, which contains several medical institutions. The majority of the employees of these large institutions commute by the Metrorail (“Allapattah”).

The Metrorail provides residents of Allapattah with connections to many other areas in the city, such as Miami International Airport, Tri-Rail, Downtown, and Dadeland South to name a few. It was found that 11.5% of workers use public transportation to get to work (“Allapattah, Miami, FL Transportation”). To find the most updated prices, visit Transit Fares.

Metrobus

Another form of public transportation is the Metrobus. The buses connect from the Metrorail stations. In Civic Center station, buses 12, 32, 95, M, and 246 connect. In Santa Clara station, buses 12, 32, 95, and 246 connect. In Allapattah station, buses 12, 21, 36, J, 246 connect (“Metrobus System May 2019”).

Car

Allapattah is located in the center of four major highways and roads: The Airport Expressway (SR 112), Dolphin Expressway (SR 836), I-95, and Northwest 27th Avenue (SR 9). This makes it very convenient for Allapattah residents to commute. 32.8% of workers commute to work takes 30 to 40 minutes (“Allapattah, Miami, FL Transportation”). Additionally, it was found that 70.8% of workers use cars and 10.2% carpool to get to work (“Allapattah, Miami, FL Transportation”). In an online survey, 66% of locals believe that a car is needed in Allapattah and 63% say that parking is easy in Allapattah (“Allapattah”). In reviewing the Metrobus System May 2019 map, these responses make sense because the Metrorail stations are located on the east side of Allapattah, which would require for residents living on the west side to commute over to utilize the Metrorail.

Walking or Biking

Another method of transportation in Allapattah is walking or biking. It was found that 4.5% of workers walk or bicycle to work (“Allapattah, Miami, FL Transportation”). In Allapattah, there are sidewalks. It is possible to walk to grocery stores (“Allapattah”). The issue with walking in Allapattah is the crime levels, which is more prevalent at night. 54% of locals say that the streets are well-lit. 62% of locals do not recommend to walk alone at night in Allapattah (“Allapattah”). This is a common recommendation in many Miami communities. However, Allapattah has many businesses within the neighborhood, which make it more convenient to residents to patronize in whatever method of transportation they choose.

Food

In 1997, the City of Miami designated Allapattah as an Empowerment Zone (EZ) neighborhood, which means that small businesses in the area have special eligibility for grants and loans (“Allapattah”).

Recently, in December 2019, the Rubell Museum expanded with the opening of a new 100,000 square-foot campus.

Summary

Allapattah is a neighborhood filled with many local businesses, resources, and cultural significances. The village has a great opportunity with its location and melting pot of culture. Something that is a growing problem is gentrification. With Wynwood becoming jam-packed with hipster businesses right across I-95, the big businesses and investors are starting to look towards Allapattah. As commercial real estate broker Carlos Fausto Miranda noted in the Miami.com article “Is Allapattah Miami’s Next Wynwood?”, “Allapattah is rapidly transitioning from an entire local unknown to a powerful buzzword in the business, investment, design, creative uses, and artistic community.” Many of us are familiar with the gentrification that took over the Wynwood neighborhood where families called Wynwood for years were bought out by investors. Allapattah is not there yet, but there are some signs that this is coming: the Rubell Museum moving from Wynwood to Allapattah and the construction of the River Landing Development. Additionally, driving through the village, one can notice how it differs so much from one end to the other, which can also play a fault in certain parts deteriorating. With home values rising quickly, soon the immigrant-driven neighborhood of Little Santo Domingo will be too expensive for the working class.

Allapattah offers many opportunities. We must continue to support the numerous local businesses located there because there is no other neighborhood with such healthcare facilities, human rights organizations, restaurants, and history. To quote Connor Green:

Most of the residents of Allapattah are victims of gentrification and lack of governmental assistance, yet their perseverance and persistence has led to Allapattah becoming one of the more beautiful cultural hot spots in South Florida. The residents are often industrious, family oriented, and diverse…Hopefully, lawmakers will set in action agreements to not increase prices for current residents as to not cause unneeded displacement or homelessness” (2020).
