Wynwood

Wynwood, what is it apart from a property phenomena where a fairly mundane warehouse and manufacturing district of Miami, has been rehabilitated?

It might be an operation backed and fueled by property developers but it’s created an area with a cool vibe and in marked contrast to the excesses of the Beach. It’s always on my program when in Miami and worth a visit to see a constantly changing parade of graffiti art, some of it witty some of it visually stunning. Is it a gritty and underground shout of protest by artists in a deprived urban setting? No it’s not and the galleries around the Wynwood walls sell at eye watering prices. But… go and enjoy, grab a juice at Jugofresh, a coffee at Panther and snack at DrSmood.
