"My Parent Still Live on This Street"
N.W. 5th Street is friendly, and family oriented, with a rich heritage and style that is uniquely Cuban. The very nature of the area looks Latin, with Spanish themed homes and yards. People who live on this street would rather have their windows open to the world then be closed up to use their air conditioners. The long history of families that live on this street has pretty much remained the same over the years. Children can play safely in yards, and ride their bikes up an down the sidewalks without parents feeling constantly worried. There are many elderly couples that reside in the area but new families are welcomed with open arms. Most households typically spend as much time outside as possible with an annual street sale that takes place every August, and cooking on a grill to share meals is a daily event. Everyone seems to know everyone. It was a great place to grow up.
