Ybor is a neighborhood within the city limits of Tampa, Florida, United States. The “V.M.” in the name stands for “Vicente Martinez”, as in Vicente Martinez Ybor , the Spanish cigar manufacturer who founded Ybor City in 1885.
Riverwalk and Curtis Hixon Park is safe , Channelside is really quiet too. The only areas I’d be a bit wary of the bus station, right in front of The Hub, and Gaslight Park.
Why did the Ybor chicken cross the road? For over a hundred years, wild chickens have been hatching eggs in Ybor City . The first Ybor City residents brought the chickens from Key West when they moved here to work in factories. The birds were used as pets, food sources and entertainment.
Ybor City was founded as an independent town in 1885 by a group of cigar manufacturers led by Vicente Martinez- Ybor and was annexed by Tampa in 1887. The original population was mostly composed of Cuban and Spanish immigrants who worked in the cigar factories.
