Aladdin City, Florida

Aladdin City is a small area of Florida. Not too much is readily known about its history or relationship to the Nights but I'll put what I find on this page over time.

From wikipedia: Aladdin City is an unincorporated community in Miami-Dade County, Florida, United States. It is located about 20 miles (32 km) southwest of Miami within the unincorporated community of Redland.

There was mention of it and a great flyer in the following article on Opa Locka Florida and its Nights-inspired architecture, but I can't find the flyer for reproduction at the moment but will also post it here when I do.

  1. Hi! Aladdin City did not have any correlation to 1001 Nights. It was named after the Aladdin Company, the developer.

    Everything I could find I posted here:
