Planet Dodge Chrysler Jeep in Miami, FL, attracts customers from a number of surrounding cities and communities, including Hialeah, FL, home to the second-highest percentage of Cuban and Cuban American residents of any city in the United States.
Hialeah has grown from a population of about 1,500 at the time of its incorporation in 1925 to almost 225,000 in the latest census, making it the sixth-largest city in Florida and one of the 100 largest cities by population in the United States (90th). Its rapid growth is largely attributable to the influx of Cuban exiles to the city, beginning with the Cuban Revolution in 1959 and continuing through the Freedom Flights of the '60s and '70s, the Mariel boatlift of 1980 and the Balseros of the late '90s. Hialeah is ranked second per capita only to neighboring Hialeah Gardens among U.S. cities where Spanish is the dominant tongue, with more than 92 percent of residents claiming Espanol as their first language.
For many years, Hialeah was perhaps best known for the Hialeah Park Race Track, famed for its pink flamingos and the Flamingo Stakes, which for many years was an important prep race for three-year-old thoroughbreds in the run-up to the Kentucky Derby. The track is still listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places, but has not held a thoroughbred race since 2001 and is currently being renovated and redeveloped after several years of dormancy. Hialeah also has the unique distinction of being the densest American city in terms of population to not feature a skyscraper. And Hialeah is home to the headquarters of Telemundo, the second-largest Spanish-language TV network in the United States.
