Wynwood has transformed into one of the world’s-hippest neighborhoods. Until relatively recently, it was mainly a warehouse district. Some bohemians and artists moved in and parlayed the graffiti-covering the warehouse walls into an-expansive display of serious street art, creating one of the most unique arts districts anywhere.
