I love North Miami like I love my family: it’s mine! But I’ve also got a pile of reasons why Miami is the most amazing city around.
Miami’s the only real immigrant city in the world: meaning immigrants get the chance to truly run the place.Given the rate of change in the world, we need the lessons of Miami: how to welcome the different, not just into low-paying jobs and poor neighborhoods, but right into the halls of power. Transportation is easy, which allows the residents to go other places easily. People here are very lovely and supportive.

I would rate my experience in North Miami as average. North Miami is a nice city. But if I could change one thing about the city it would be the upkeep of the neighborhood. The neighborhood is not always safe and the crime rates are high. I would love to see our mayor more involved so the structure can be more efficient for the patrons.

On the other hand, I must admit I enjoy the diversity of the city and the people. Everything is at a walking distance and easy to find. Most of all, I enjoy the different selections of food. My mother is Costa Rican, and my father is Haitian. North Miami, allows me to enjoy both cultures.

In conclusion, I would give North Miami a 3-star rating out of 5. North Miami is not a bad city, but it still needs a little work. All in all, I would recommend North Miami, for people that are into great culture and diversity.
The things I like about North Miami is the parks and recreations. In this city were surrounded by a multitude of parks where you can just sit down and enjoy the fresh air. In this city you’ll notice that the main languages spoken are English, Haitian-Creole, and Spanish. The neighborhood is extremely diverse. There is zero racial tension surrounding this city. We also have patrol officers surrounded by neighboring schools and homes to make sure everyone is safe.
