Miami City

New Page 1

Miami was established as a city in 1896, having three hundred and forty four residents. The cities name is derived from a Native American word for sweet water. Native Americans are storied to have inhabited the city for more than ten thousand years. In the early sixteenth century some Europeans attempted to settle in Miami but were fought off by the Native Americans who lived in the area. Even in the late nineteenth century the city was greatly uninhabited.

The only tribe never to buckle under the United States governments rule and also to sign a treaty of any kind were the Seminole, who were living in Miami. In the late nineteenth century, Julia Tuttle bought a gigantic Citrus farm in Miami. She tried to persuade the railway baron to extend his railroad into the heart of Miami but all was in vain. Ironically Florida was hit by one of the worst winters in recent years and all the citrus plantations were completely ruined. She again asked the Railway Baron to visit Miami and see for himself the cities state. He eventually took up her idea and was impressed with what he saw. The railway expanded to Miami and sales of Tuttles' citrus fruit were very successful that year. Miami's growth recorded after the second world war was astounding. This boom was brought about by the authorities permitting gambling to take place. The regulation was non existent and this opened the flood gates. People from all over the country settled in the city and a construction boom took over. This boom was ended by a deadly hurricane in 1927 and the great depression ended the whole issue.

By the mid twentieth century the population of Miami was about five hundred thousand residents. This was brought about by the government idea of building, supply, communication and training facilities in and around the city. Several servicemen and women from the second world war settled in Miami. Miami is ranked as the third biggest port in terms of Immigration behind New York city and L.A. In the mid twentieth century most of the immigrants were from Cuba, especially when Fidel Castro took power, the numbers increased tremendously. In 1965, more than one hundred thousand Cubans took the flights known as the freedom flights to Miami.

The largest single fleet in civilian history ferried more than one hundred and fifty thousand Cubans and dropped them at the shores of Miami. A few of the demographics for the city of Miami are; Living in the city are 83,336 families. 65.76% of the population are Latino of any race, 22.31% are African American, 0.66% are of Asian origin, 0.22% are Native American and 0.04% Pacific Islander. Miami's has some of the best weather in the country. it is a favorite hotspot for tourists from within the country and the world. Here are a few attraction in Miami; Museum of Contemporary Art, Fairchild Tropical Gardens, Miami Seaquarium, Coconut Grove, Vizcaya Museum & Gardens, Historical Museum of South Florida, Bayside Marketplace, Hibiscus Island, Miami Art Museum and Parrot Jungle Island. Miami's hotels are some of the best in the state. They are; Marriott Dadeland, Wellesley Inn Kendall, Floridian Hotel, Comfort Suites and Ramada Limited Dadeland. Miami is one of the few cities in the United states that have all the four major sports franchises; Miami Dolphins (National Football League), Florida Panthers (National Hockey League), Florida Marlins (Major League Baseball) and the Miami Heat (National Basketball Association).
