Babcock Park is Hialeah's oldest community center and historically underrated. It's a beautiful 18 acres park, built in 1938. Originally it was named Hunter Lyon park. The park quickly became the center of kids lives in Hialeah. They added the first public pool in our city and most kids learned to swim at this park. Any big event was held here, school dances, graduations, weddings or any sort of celebration. For a long time Babcock park was at the core of everything in Hialeah.
The name was changed to Babcock Park in the late 40's; when War world II broke out, Hialeah became a town of old folk, women and children. Every single young man joined the service and went off to war, many to never return. The city re-named the park after Benny Babcock, who was the first of sadly many young Hialeah boys who would die defending our country.
Today the park has 7 baseball fields, tennis, basketball and racquetball courts. It also has a great playground area for smaller children and it's very safe as it shares space with a police station and it also houses an E-library as well. #hialeah

¡Por fin ésta Lia regresó a HiaLeah! True story: Some of my most tumultuous times were spent a block away from here. It was nice to go back to my old stomping grounds.

What do you love about Hialeah?

Don Camaron is a most unexpected find is Hialeah, as you can guess by the name, their specialty is seafood with a strong focus on shrimp 🍤. That's not what makes them a neat place though, plenty of seafood restaurants in our city, what makes them special is how fresh the food is and the cool island vibes this place has. With live music and great drink specials set in a tropical decor, this is a great place to unwind after a long work week.
Opened in 2010, Don Camaron has been incredibly popular and they have expanded, today you can even find them inside Marlins Park. Their lunch specials are a great deal ranging from $6-10 and their seafood offerings vary from fresh ceviche to "tostones" filled with shrimp. You really can't go wrong with their shrimp choices. They have beef and chicken dishes as well, just in case.
The location while very centric, right of Okeechobee and the Palmetto, it's a boring industrial looking area with an underwhelming view of the highway. However if you are willing to ignore that and use a little imagination, this restaurant will instantly transport you to a tropical island 🌴#hialeah

In the roaring 20's the U.S was experiencing its biggest economic boom ever and people wanted more, they wanted the sun and warmth of the tropics. So they left the cold and unforgiving north to settle in sunny South Florida, the new American riviera. Paradise however comes with just one little downside...hurricanes.
In 1926 at the height of the land boom, South Florida was hit by the mother of all hurricanes, "The Great Miami" hurricane( hurricanes were not named until 1953) an enormous beast of a storm that made landfall in South Beach. It destroyed everything in its path, catastrophic winds of 135 mph that lashed at the sea, trees and whatever building was left standing relentlessly for 18 agonizing hours. Over 500 deaths, many of them coming as Hialeah residents ( who had never seen a hurricane before) left their houses to inspect the damage as the eye of the storm passed overhead and never realized that they were inside a giant vortex and that a fast approaching deadly wall of wind was on the other side. To this day, the costliest hurricane ever recorded in the U.S, adjusted for inflation the damages were $190 billion, Andrew by comparison caused $65 billion in damages.
The damage was devastating, thousands were homeless and several looting riots broke out. Hialeah took a nearly catastrophic direct hit from the eye of the storm, around 70% of all structures were flattened and the population dropped from 20K to just 2K in a year.
The University of Miami opened days after the hurricane hit and that's why they nicknamed their sports teams "The hurricanes" to honor the catastrophe. #hialeah

Ernest G. Graham was anything but average, a rare breed of a man who was daring, rough and decisive. He was born in 1896 Michigan, from a family of humble means and moved to Florida in 1921. His first son was born in a house-boat with no electricity out in the middle of the everglades. With nothing to lose, Graham took the biggest gamble of his life, he bet all his savings on 9K acres of what was considered then worthless flooded swamp land. This land was located in what today is most of west Hialeah and Miami Lakes.
He built himself a two story stone house in Okeechobee Road in 1925 which still stands today just a block away from the Turnpike in Hialeah. It might look a bit run down but it is a strong house and the foundation of where the massive Graham Empire was forged and molded.
Graham decided to raise cattle and with nothing but pioneer grit and back breaking hard work, he would become the single biggest dairy farmer in South Florida. He was respected and admired by his peers and even became a state senator. He had achieved a huge self made fortune and status in society but he wanted a legacy to leave behind, so he sent his kids to Harvard and worked relentlessly to make sure South Florida had a world class public university. (He is considered the father of FIU)
His sons continued his legacy of hard work and business foresight. Phil Graham married the heir to The Washington Post fortune and made the struggling newspaper into one of the most respected in the country. Bill Graham took over the family dairy farms and pivoted from cattle to a developer and property management juggernaut. Bob Graham became one of the most admired politicians in Florida serving twice as governor and three times as a U.S senator. He never lost a single election. ( His daughter Gwen Graham is running for governor in 2018)
The Graham patriarch would've been proud, his family has accomplished incredible wealth and an empire that stretches from media holdings, real estate and political power, they can be considered to be Florida's most influential family but it all started in a small stone house in the edge of a small town called Hialeah. A city of destiny 🏡 #hialeah

Kung-Fu restaurant has been around for a long time, since the mid 70's, although even longer ago this odd looking building( looks like a lego restaurant ) used to host a Royal Castle and was actually built in 1966. Over the decades they have gone through a few owners and big changes around them but they have always managed to survive.
Today's incarnation is among the very best so far, their food quality is decent and their selection fairly large. Unlike other Chinese restaurants, this place is large enough to serve a big party, although parking is a real pain. They carry classics like fried rice, lo mein and wonton soup but they also can surprise you with a delicious rice vermicelli or even an avocado boba smoothie.
The owners are Chinese but their Spanish is actually better than their English(that's Hialeah living for you) Prices are very reasonable and portions are massive, enough to share or to take back home. 🍜 #hialeah

Florida has no shortage of iconic images, from our beaches, Disney world, space shuttles and yet when Floridians were asked what their most iconic symbol was? They overwhelmingly picked the pink flamingo, Florida's unofficial mascot. "Miami Vice" opening intro had flamingos, the Florida lottery uses a flamingo and our city of Hialeah has them in our city seal as well and of course a lot of bright pink plastic ones across "abuela's" lawns everywhere. Ironically though, the bird was hunted to extinction by the 1850's in Florida.
The love affair with flamingos exists only because of our city. Joseph E. Widener was the incredibly wealthy owner of the Hialeah race track, he instructed his architect to add an infield lake filled with palms trees and pink flamingos. Having none here in Florida, they imported 20 flamingos from Cuba, which quickly flew back days later. They were determined to have flamingos so they imported another 20 but this time they clipped their wings. It took a while but eventually they thrived here. The exotic birds were released right before the races and were just as popular as the horses themselves.
As tourists flocked to Hialeah, they fell in love with the flamingos and brought back home little mementos in the shape of flamingo cups, pins and all kinds of souvenirs. However the flamingo craze really went into overdrive in 1957 when Don Featherstone (last pic) fresh off art school, created the iconic plastic bright pink flamingo lawn ornament and just like that our Hialeah flamingos were everywhere! 💗 #hialeah
