I used to live in Miami, Fl. the cost of living for the elderly is outrages as are the rents and transportation. Health care is not affordable and hospitals don't pay much attention to the elderly .You feel as if you are a burden to society. That's why I moved

No, not really. There is only one school and not that many community activities.

No. No but this is no different than the Hispanic neighborhoods. If you are African American and do not speak Spanish, Haitian Creole, or French you are going to have a horrible time finding a job -- no matter what your education level. community engagement doesn't exist, There are strip malls that cater to Haitian needs only. Personally, I feel that people should speak English and not live in cluster. It doesn't do either side any good in the long run.
