Murals in Little Haiti

Above are some of the colorful murals that give Little Haiti that extra flavor. Hand painted murals on the exterior of the commercial facades adds to the community identity. The community's cultural vibrancy is apparent in the colors and aesthetics that are clearly depicted on the commercial store fronts. This kind of signage/murals are unique to Little Haiti. The amount of hand painted murals exposed to commercial frontage is distinctive to Little Haiti. No other community in Miami, has this unique idiosyncratic cultural flavor. Vibrant botanicas and buzzing corner markets and blaring record stores not contributing sounds smells and sights all unmistakeably Little Haiti.
