Also known as Mache Ayisyen, the nine thousand square foot Caribbean Marketplace is the largest space within the Little Haiti Cultural Complex. The Little Haiti area in Miami is a neighborhood which embodies a rich history concerning Haitian immigration to Florida. Museums and murals alike seek to develop new narratives about the transnational nature of the small neighborhood. The religious institutions have a history of activism and continue to participate in social justice programs that enhance the livelihood of their constituents.
The Bayshore Historic District, commonly referred to as Morningside, is located within the Upper Eastside neighborhood of Miami. Most of the district's historic properties are located east of Biscayne Boulevard, from NE 50th Terrace to NE 62nd Street, and just north of Bay Point Estates. During his US visit, Pope John Paul II stayed in this neighborhood at the home of Archbishop Edward McCarthy on NE 53rd Street.
