Hmmm, there's a lot of inline Wikipedia links in the Understand section. It would be nice if there was a sentence or two in the article if there's stuff people need to know, otherwise maybe add these as real Wikipedia links? Majnoona 20:03, 24 Jul 2004 (EDT)

Is Miami a huge city

Does Miami need to follow the Huge city article template? For example Miami Beach says it is now a city but was a suburb. There appear to be other localities or districts in the area too. -- Huttite 19:07, 7 Jan 2005 (EST)

Well, more than a year later, I'm going to ask this again: Huge city? I think the asnwer is yes! Just look at the Buy section and how it mentions different districts as locations. I'm going to take a stab at a start and hope that someone who knows the area will follow up. Majnoona 13:14, 22 Feb 2006 (EST)
eh, now I wonder... should there just be a neighborhood description area instead? Is there really only one area where travellers/ tourists visit? Majnoona 13:16, 22 Feb 2006 (EST)

This has got to be the most poorly written wikitravel entry. Did someone from Miami write this?

I see that someone has now created an article on "Little havana" (sic), which (poor capitalization aside) seems to be a first, halting step toward a Miami "district." The article nothing much, but maybe it can be an incentive to start a district structure that actually works. Anybody? I've moved that one to Miami/Little Havana; go forth and do likewise/better. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 09:11, 14 December 2006 (EST)

(If anyone just so happens to stumble on this page), Do we really need it? THE evil fluffyface 10:31, 1 August 2007 (EDT)

No, we don't. I'd say remove it from this article. I'm not sure it would be useful in any Wikitravel article other than possibly Fundamentals of flying (to illustrate for the skeptical that these giant metal contraptions can, in fact, get off the ground). Gorilla Jones 10:40, 1 August 2007 (EDT)

Crime

Who wrote this??? It's batshit insane. Miami is one of the most dangerous places in America. The article is total bullshit, and needs to be changed. We don't want tourists coming here and getting killed because they were dumb enough to believe that "public transit is generally safe in Miami" or that "Downtown and Miami Beach are safe." Zip code 33130, for example, has a personal (murder, rape, assault, robbery) crime rate of 667. To give you a comparison, Compton California's worst section scores only 467. New York's Marcy Projects, in the Bedford Sty, score a 170. Even Detroit's worst is 561. The only places in the U.S. as dangerous as Miami, are Camden and East St. Louis.

So, rethink that. And about public transit, the metrorail is not very safe, or clean for that matter. I've seen enough crap on there (litteraly and figuratively) to know that!
