  2. About Wynwood

    The Wynwood Art District, or simply known as Wynwoood, is a subdivision of Miami, Florida north of downtown. It is roughly divided by NW/NE 20th Street to the south, I-195 to the north, I-95 to the west and Biscayne Boulevard (US 1) to the east.

    Wynwood is home to one of the largest Puerto Rican enclaves in Miami. Wynwood is also referred to as "Little San Juan", and commonly known as "El Barrio". Puerto Rican owned restaurants, shops, markets and other businesses align the streets of Wynwood. Puerto Rican culture and social activity is centered in Wynwood. In recent years, many Puerto Ricans have been moving to more affluent areas of Miami such as Kendall and Coral Gables due to socioeconomic success in the past years. The Wynwood Puerto Rican population is dwindling and being replaced by Central Americans, especially people from Honduras. Gentrification is also taking place in Wynwood and many expensive condominiums are being built, replacing the mom and pop shops, as well as homes.
