Ybor City is Tampa’s off-the-radar Latin Quarte
The Toronto Star – March 14, 2016
Roosters strut around Ybor City, congregating in the public parking lot, loitering in the park, cock-a-doodle-dooing like they own the joint. They do, actually. These privileged chickens are descendants of the backyard birds raised by the neighbourhood’s first residents — the melting pot of immigrants that started arriving in the 1880s to work in cigar factories. Ybor City is now a National Historic Landmark District and, somewhat oddly, a bird sanctuary. Details from the Toronto Star.
