The City of Miami known as the “Magic City” is located in Southeast Florida, in Miami-
Dade County on the Miami River, between the Florida Everglades and the Atlantic
Ocean.

HISTORY

No other city in the United States is like Miami. Since its foundation, barely 108 years
ago, Miami has gone through times of turmoil and triumph. However, its increasingly
diverse population has been able to turn a tourist oriented city into a glowing,
cosmopolitan, international metropolis.

From the beginning, Miami’s rich sub-tropical abundance, its sun, sand and beautiful
beaches have attracted seekers and dreamers. The Tequesta Indians found this land
more than 10,000 years ago and had it all for themselves until the Spanish
“rediscovered" it again in the 16th century.

In the 19th century, wreckers from the Bahamas came to South Florida and the keys to
hunt for the remains of an international array of ships that crashed into the Great Florida
Reef. At about the same time, the Seminole Indians, along with a group of runaway
slaves came to Florida.

In 1891, a plucky widow named Julia Tuttle moved to Florida and purchased 640 acres
of land on the north bank of the Miami River. Tuttle later talked wealthy railroad builder
Henry Flagler into extending his railroad into Miami, building a luxury hotel and laying
out a new town. These developments resulted in the birth of a new city. The City of
Miami was incorporated on July 28, 1896.

As a result of these developments, thousands of new comers arrived in Florida. Even
then, Miami had a very diverse population; people with a variety of cultures, from every
part of the world flocked to this new city. Miami’s first mayor was an Irish Catholic. Most
of the early merchants were Jewish. African Americans and Black Bahamians made up
one-third of the City’s incorporators.

Despite vast developments Miami fell into a deep depression three years earlier than
the rest of the nation. In 1926 a terrible hurricane struck Miami. As a result 100 people
lost their lives and thousands of homes were destroyed. Miami, however never stayed
down for long. Its resilient spirit brought it out of the 1930’s depression ahead of the rest
of the nation. This happened in part due to the aviation industry. During the depression,
Pan American Airways began the era of modern aviation with “Flying Clippers” from
Miami Dinner Key. Even then, Pan Am advertised Miami as the “Gateway to the
Americas”. Today, the Pan-am terminal is the home to City of Miami officials: City hall.

Countless men and women who trained in Miami during World War II hurried back to
South Florida after the war creating another period of phenomenal growth. Despite all of
this development, Black Miamians were still waiting for their own dreams to come true.
Segregation of the races was prescribed by both law and custom as the order of the
day. Even the color of the beaches was clearly defined during this period as separated.

As a result of this segregation, Overtown developed a unique identity and a sense of
pride in its people. After decades of civil battle, school segregation was finally defeated
in the 1970’s. So teachers, administrators and staff of all public schools were integrated.

When Fidel Castro took over Cuba in 1959, Miami’s history took an unexpected turn. In
a single decade, more than a half million Cubans fled to South Florida. In 1980, Miami
experienced its worst immigration wave during the Mariel boatlift. In about four months,
125,000 refugees arrived in Miami. As they stayed and prospered, they helped
transform Miami into a true connecter to Latin America.

During the 1980’s, our city experienced days of racial tension. A wind of rage, hate and
fear blew over the city. At least 18 people died and more than a thousand were injured.
Another sort of wind blew over Miami on August 24, 1992. Hurricane “Andrew” lashed
South Florida leaving death and destruction behind. Once again Miami overcame the
nightmare.

Three years later the City of Miami fell into the worst financial crisis of its history. To
help the City survive, the state government created a supervisory board to watch over
the municipal services. At the time of this fiscal catastrophe, major bond-rating services
reduced Miami’s ratings to junk.

At the beginning of the 21st century, things started to change for the better. Since 2001,
the credit ratings have been steadily increasing and now the city is at an all time high
level standing with all three of its credit-rating firms.

A six-capital improvement program valued at more than 500 million dollars has been
designed to bring sweeping infrastructure enhancement to every neighborhood in the
City. The plan includes storm water sewer and drainage projects to mitigate flash floods
during the rainy season.

More than ever before, our parks have become a vibrant place for families to enjoy
together. The summer programs in addition to sports have many other options for kids
with artistic talents.

Our Neighborhoods are more secure thanks to the “Quality of Life Task Force”, a
combined effort of different municipal departments. This specialized team has been able
to enforce the law and eradicate many illegal activities, as well as, remove thousands of
abandoned and untagged vehicles from our streets.

Looking to the future, we have “Midtown Miami” a 1.2 Billion commercial and residential
development to be built in the Wynwood area, close to Little Haiti, Overtown, Allapattah
and the Design District. Miami Midtown will be the cornerstone for the creation of jobs
and economic development in those areas.
History proves that the spirit of Miami’s dynamic, vibrant people always remains strong.
Let’s be proud of our rich history and keep working towards a bright future.

POPULATION
According to the 2000 census, it has a population of 362,470. By the year 2010 the
population in the City is projected to rise to 390,191.

NOVEMBER
National Basketball Association
Toronto, Canada was the site of the National Basketball League's first game on Nov. 1,
1946, with the Huskies hosting the New York Knickerbockers at Maple Leaf Gardens.
Thirteen original rules were drafted by Dr. James Naismith, creator of basketball. Pro
basketball suffered in popularity in the early 1950's, but one rule change -- that of the
24-second clock -- transformed the sport from a dull, stalling game to an exciting,
offensive showcase. Icons along the way, from Bob Cousy and Wilt Chamberlain to
Magic Johnson, Larry Bird and Michael Jordan, have immortalized what's now the
National Basketball Association's game, creating long-standing rivalries from coast to
coast.

College Basketball
First devised by James Naismith in 1891, with the first recorded collegiate game in
1893, legions testify there’s no sound so soothing as a basketball whooshing through
the net after a flick of the wrist. NCAA basketball brings grass roots hoop dreams to an
entirely new level each fall, building toward March Madness, the NCAA Division
Basketball Championships.

Everglades Alligator Farm
South Florida’s oldest working alligator farm on the Everglades edge (but not within
Everglades National Park) has more than 3,000 toothsome gators to view in a rustic
atmosphere. Farm visits include airboat rides and walking tours to see alligators,
crocodiles, caimans, and snakes from Florida and elsewhere, along with the opportunity
to be photographed holding a baby alligator. Originally started as an airboat ride
attraction, transition began after 1985 changes in Florida law permitting alligator
farming. In the 1960s, federal officials believed the American alligator was close to
extinction and commercial farming was seen as a way to preserve these reptiles traced
back to dinosaur times. Smaller gators are kept in grow-out pens with larger ones
moved to breeding ponds where females have one clutch of eggs per year with up to 45
eggs. Scheduled entertainment includes Alligator Feeding and a Weird Animal Show.

other animals. A Jungle Trail leads to an Alligator Farm with more than 400 American
alligators, a crocodile exhibit, and a replica of a Chickee Village.

Gold Coast Railroad Museum
Featuring more than 40 pieces of railroad rolling stock and equipment including diesel
and steam locomotives, the museum is dedicated to preserving, exhibiting, and
operating historic rail equipment. The Museum was formed in 1957 by activists trying to
save pieces of Florida history that were taken for granted and rapidly disappearing. Its
collection includes the Ferdinand Magellan (the private railroad car built for President
Franklin Roosevelt), the Florida East Coast Railway locomotive 153, (the engine that
pulled the rescue train out of Marathon after the 1935 hurricane); and the 113, (an FEC
locomotive built in 1913 and used in regular revenue service over the entire Florida East
Coast railroad). The "Train Crew Member For-A-Day" program enables the public to act
as a part of the Train Crew on Museum trains. The program provides for 30 minutes or

Lowe Art Museum
The Lowe is South Florida’s only area museum owning a distinguished collection of
Egyptian, Greek, and Roman antiquities. From origins in three classrooms in 1948,
history of the Lowe Art Museum reflects commitment to serving the University of Miami
along with residents and visitors. A gift from philanthropists Joe and Emily Lowe allowed
the 1952 opening of a free-standing museum facility to the public as South Florida’s first
art museum. Its 10,000-object collection is one of the most important in the southeast,
with strengths in Renaissance and Baroque, American, Native American, pre–
Columbian, and Asian art. A 1956 donation by Alfred I. Barton bought one of the
country's finest collections of Native American art. In 1987, the Lowe was designated a
“Major Cultural Institution” by the State of Florida. On the U.M. campus in Coral Gables,
Metrorail arrivals should take the “University” stop. From there, a free U.M. shuttle bus
heads for the museum, which has a gift shop.

Miami MetroZoo
Surviving hurricanes Betsy and Andrew, today’s Miami Metrozoo can be traced back to
Key Biscayne’s Crandon Park Zoo, created in 1948 when three monkeys, two black
bears and a goat were picked up for $270 from a road show stranded near Miami. The
collection grew to 1,200 animals, resulting in the Crandon Park Zoo, which in 1967
succeeded in the rare captive birth and rearing of an aardvark. Then 1965’s Hurricane
Betsy caused deaths of 250 animals leading to Metrozoo, a county-operated zoo
opening in 1981, with 38 exhibits covering 200 acres. In 1982, another 25 acres and a
monorail were added, with following years bringing the Wings of Asia exhibit, a 1.6 acre
free-flight aviary and more. In 1989, Metrozoo debuted both the first koala born on the
east coast and PAWS, the children’s petting zoo. In 1990, the Asian River Life
Experience opened with small-clawed Asian otters, a blood python, Malayan water
monitor, clouded leopards, land tortoises, muntjac deer, demoiselle cranes, and fly-river
turtles. On Aug. 24, 1992, Hurricane Andrew blew away some 5,000 trees and Wings of
Asia, built to withstand winds of up to 120 m.p.h. The 300 exotic birds, representing the
finest collection of Asian birds anywhere, were lost. Reopening four months later, by
July, 1993, animals were back home at Metrozoo and 7,000 trees had been planted.
Exhibits now include the Andean Condor (1999), Meerkats (2000), Cuban Crocodiles
(2001), Squirrel Monkeys (2001) and “Dr. Wilde’s World,” housing traveling zoological
exhibits. American Bankers Family Aviary, Wings of Asia opened in May, 2003.

reptiles and birds of prey. The adjacent Space Transit Planetarium projects astronomy
and laser shows and interactive demonstrations of computer technology and
cyberspace. Museum favorites include the Cyber City exhibit that explores the future of
computers in society and the nationally-recognized Falcon Batchelor Bird of Prey
Center, which not only teaches about these aggressive but lovable animals but also
helps save endangered ones.

Parrot Jungle Island
A brand new jungle has bloomed on an island near Miami -- Parrot Jungle Island, a $47-
million park opened in June, 2003, replacing Parrot Jungle and Gardens, a South
Florida fixture dating to 1936. The new 18.6-acre entertainment destination, between
downtown Miami and South Beach just off MacArthur Causeway, is home to some
3,000 exotic animals and 500 plant species, with animal stage shows, one-of-a-kind
aviaries, jungle trails, a petting farm and more. Parrot Jungle Island’s centerpiece is
Jungle Theater, an open-air "oooh" and "aaah" arena. Guests are "face-to-beak" with
more than 200 parrots and macaws in the Manu Encounter, the world's only aviary
replicating the clay cliffs of Manu, Peru. Everglades Habitat recreates South Florida's
"river of grass" and its wildlife. The park's huge collection of reptiles and amphibians,
including an extremely rare albino alligator and a 21-foot crocodile, are housed in the
Serpentarium. At the 1,200-seat Parrot Bowl, shows feature antics of trained parrots,
cockatoos, and macaws. Theme park admission is not required for access to the
indoor/outdoor Lakeside Café, overlooking Flamingo Lake with tropical fish and a sea of
pink Caribbean flamingos.

Vizcaya Museum and Gardens
Industrialist James Deering's 34-room winter residence showcases a long-gone lifestyle
as well as America’s finest collection of 15th through 19th century furniture and
decorative arts. When Deering (1859-1925) started to build his estate more than 85
years ago, he enlisted help from New York painter Paul Chalfin. They made buying trips
to Europe for important architectural components, furniture, and art including wall
panels, ceilings, mantels, and tapestries. Each room conveys a particular period style,
from Renaissance to Baroque, Rococo and Neoclassic. Deering's suite covers several
Neoclassic periods. In the sitting room, Italian carved wood paneling frames Louis XVI
silk on walls, and massive mahogany desks are French Empire. A French Savonnerie
rug dates from the early 19th century. His bedroom contains a gold laurel wreath on the
ceiling, bed drapery supported by a bronze eagle and gold-decorated mahogany
furniture of the Napoleonic French Empire period. Deering's bath features a linen ceiling
canopy, suggestive of a Napoleonic campaign tent. Marble walls are decorated with
Sheffield silver. Since Vizcaya was acquired by Miami-Dade County in 1952, the main
house and contents have undergone extensive restoration. Unoccupied since Deering's
death, salt air humidity and neglect had taken their toll. In 1987, the open courtyard was
enclosed and air-conditioned for preservation.
