There's a huge Jamaican and West Indian population in the western part of Broward County. While immigration to South Florida is perpetual, it seemed as though the seeds of this community began arriving in the late 1970s. As we wandered around Sunrise and Weston, eating everything from slow-cooked oxtail to salty codfish for breakfast we learned many Jamaican at first settled in Miami Gardens. Later Lauderhill became the destination, where a nearby bus terminal provided transportation. Soon after restaurants, markets began cropping up and a sort of Little Kingston started developing.
