I've lived here all my life, and overall you can really see that it its a city that is progressing! Very populated and has a unique communities all through out, ranging from all directions, yes literally, like east, west, North west and Northeast of the city, all contain different minority cultures, like African Americans, Asian Americans, and Hispanics from Cuba, Colombia, Peru, Central America and other places.

The overall ambience in Hialeah is similar to walking through any latino town in the U.S., from Cuban's playing dominos outside to Argentinian steak, Hialeah has a multitude of unique characteristics. In this part of Miami latin, hispanic and Caribbean cultures flood the street. One of the best things is that you can buy almost any tropical fruit just by driving around 49th street; just watch-out for potholes! Oh, the other downside, you can not depend on the public transportation. The public transportation system has little accommodations while waiting on the train/ bus (seating is limited, the bus takes 40-60 minutes in some areas, no cover from rain, etc.).
I currently live in Hialeah, Fl and I very much like it here. It's very diverse, nearly everyone is friendly, many job opportunities, a very busy city. The schools are very good having attended and met many kids from varying schools here. There's always something to do, very family oriented, but also a good time for independents. Affordable. Despite the many positives though, traffic here is fairly hectic given the massive population. There's always constantly some kind of construction work going on, but other than that, it's a nice city with plenty to offer.
