Then: Blighted warehouse district, with poverty, crime, and a drug-riddled park.

Now: It’s not hipster heaven yet, but with its colorful warehouses, wide gallery-gazing sidewalks, and premier shoreside location, this hood has the promise of greatness. Since 2002, a thriving art scene has been Wynwood’s draw: more than 20 galleries participate in the Second Saturday Art Walk, including the pioneer Bakehouse Complex, housed in a former bakery.

Don’t Miss: The western edge of Wynwood (5th Avenue from 24th to 28th streets), where throngs of seamstresses turn out wholesale wares at cut-rate prices, and vintage men’s clothiers like Austin Burke keep male sophistication alive.
