During the 1880’s many Cubans, Spanish and Italian immigrants populated the booming cigar town for around 50 years. During this time millions of cigars were rolled annually, After WWII the majority of the immigrants left Ybor City, leaving the town to ruins and decay.
With the passing of many years, some of the town came to life again. Mainly 7th Avenue where it is now known as a Night Club Hot Spot/ Restaurant area. Many of the buildings are now listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
I hope you will join me as we take a stroll this lovely day down 7th Avenue. Many restaurants, stores and clubs line the street…..
