Block Party: Miami’s Wynwood District

Wynwood is a neighborhood in flux, and you can feel it on every block. After years of development, you’re just as likely to come across a contemporary art gallery or an artisanal bakery as you are a wholesale shoe warehouse in this long-time enclave of the working-class. It’s the...
