Grand Ave News

Grand Ave News is a hyper-local news website started in 2009 to inform people about what’s going on in and around the West Grove, which holds some of the richest history of Miami’s earliest African-American and Bahamian settlers. As one of Miami’s oldest neighborhoods, it’s evolved through segregation, the Civil Rights Movement, urban decay and sprawling development. Grand Ave News is named after Grand Avenue, the West Grove’s main thoroughfare.
