Shades of Summer

We feel pretty!

Blight into Might

Like FAT Village and MASS District before it, the 13th Street Corridor in Fort Lauderdale has been receiving public funding to give you and your friends more fun things to do off the strip of Federal Highway. Describing the area as a “desperate situation” 10 years ago, Tim Smith, former District Two commissioner and founder of the Central City Alliance, has led the crusade to improve lighting and roads. Businesses are now flocking to the area: Check out the Friday night beer garden and live music at Odd Balls Nifty Thrift, a seven-room treasure trove; celebrate local creativity at the District 13 art gallery and event space; hold your business meetings at Warsaw Coffee Company; or empower your body and mind at Renzo Gracie Jiu Jitsu Training Center.
