Little Cuba
Florida has neighborhoods called "Little Havana" or "Little Cuba." This one New York City citation below may be isolated. The term is not in use today.

Broad Channel, the only inhabited island in Jamaica Bay, was called "Little Cuba" in its heyday, referring to its speakeasies and summer lifestyle that mirrored Havana in the 1920s and making it a popular destination for well-to-do New Yorkers during Prohibition.
