I was thrilled to see the Nov. 4 article, Big plans unveiled for proposed Underline path below Miami-Dade Metrorail.
I moved here as a young child, when Miami was a sleepy, unair-conditioned town and have never left. I’ve seen Miami Beach go from a very segregated, genteel city to Ocean Drive as rocking chair road.
As my peers moved north to Boca Raton and North Miami Beach, a new world came to life.
Diversity continued from the Caribbean, South America, Asia and Africa. The richness of many cultures added a heightened new dimension to our development. Sunny Isles has the largest Russian population outside Russia. I saw a sign on a restaurant for Uzbek cuisine. Who knew?
As a young woman, I remember Wynwood as the Garment District. Today it is the canvas of the world — the new Design District — our better version of Rodeo Drive.
Now the Underline. How exciting! Kudos to the movers and shakers who have the vision and commitment to continue to move Miami-Dade County to a world class-destination and beyond. We’re not done yet.
