Cheap Apartments Are Disappearing From Little Haiti

The few remaining affordable rental units that working poor and seniors on fixed income can afford, are disappearing from Miami’s house market.

Buildings like this one–small multi-unit apartment buildings that charge well below market rate for rent– are quickly disappearing from rapidly gentrifying neighborhoods like Little Haiti and West Coconut Grove. These structures are typically in disrepair, but when the working-poor families or seniors living on meager Social Security checks in these apartments are confronted with leaving it becomes a vexing pursuit to find a place they can afford.
