Miami lays claim to the distinction of being "the only major city in the United States conceived by a woman, Julia Tuttle”. The area was characterized as "one of the finest building sites in Florida." and was officially incorporated as a city on July 28, 1896. Come 1940, 172,172 people lived in the city. Fidel Castro rose to power in 1959 in Cuba and that would prove to be a seminal event not only for its inhabitants but for Florida. Many Cubans sought refuge in South Florida and further increased the population.
During the 1990’s, the city started to become a major international, financial, and cultural center. Today the city is a major center of business and finance, with strong international business ties to Latin America. The metropolitan area has a (Gross Metropolitan Product) of $257 billion and is ranked 20th worldwide in GMP, and 11th in the United States. Miami is the 44th most populous city in the United States as of of 2010.
