What makes a world-class city? According to Eye On Miami, a city can have all the stadiums and museums it wants, but if it can't provide its citizens with basic needs and services, achieving world-class status is out of reach:
You can build a hundred stadiums but as long as you don’t fund our schools and take politics out of them, Miami will remain a little-shit town. You are dressing up the pig, Mayor Alvarez. Look deeper. Ridding Miami of poverty, having good transit and schools is what makes a city world class. A stadium doesn’t cut it. Just say you want baseball, don't include the "World Class City" bull, no one is buying it.
