Hialeah is a standout in SoFla and is one of the unique places in Miami-Dade County. It’s home to majority Hispanic population, it’s one of the oldest and largest cities in the 305, and it’s so set in its own ways that the city even has its own street numbering system.
Over the years the city has dealt with its fair share of government corruption, and gotten a bad rap as a “miserable” place to live in various random studies. But the city is also filled with residents, and former residents, who are full of pride. And a new generation of folks who grew up in the city, or who still live there, are working to change some of those connotations.
So with all that in mind, we’re looking to explore SoFla’s second largest city. And that’s where you can help us.
We collected your questions about Hialeah’s history, culture or character.
After asking you all to vote on one of three choices for the question we’ll dive into in Hialeah, we have a winner:
“What are the main highlights or features of the underground music scene in Hialeah?”
That question from Kiele Cabrera won with about 63 percent of the vote! Here’s our answer to her question. Thanks again to everyone who asked questions, and to all of you who voted!
