Wynwood Arts District Neighborhood in Miami, Florida
Where is Wynwood Miami?
Wynwood is adjacent to Edgewater, and north of Downtown Miami. It is divided into two main sub-districts, the Wynwood Fashion District along West Fifth Avenue, and the Wynwood Art District in the northern part of Wynwood. Wynwood is bounded to the east by Florida East Coast Railway, then by North 20th street to the south, I-95 to the west, and I-195 to the north.
History of Wynwood
Once known as a decrepit business district, Wynwood has developed into one of Miami’s most vibrant community. This neighborhood has seen an increasing number of attention and investments since the early 2000s with Tony Goldman playing a significant role in its advancement. In 2005, Midtown Miami development projects started. This included the North 29th and 36th street and Miami Avenue and the Florida East Coast Railway expanding the scope of the area. This project brought renewed attention to this region.
Today, Miami’s Wynwood neighborhood is the world’s largest open-air museum dotted with restaurants, dance venues, breweries, artwork, clothing shops, and many other retail options.

As of 2018, Wynwood was home to about 8,000 people but these numbers should rise with new residences planned. About 30% of Wynwood’s households have children, and the median income is right around the $30,000 mark.
