LeJeune Road, also known as either Northwest or Southwest 42nd Avenue, is a north-south street that runs west of downtown Miami in Miami-Dade County, Florida. According to Joaquin Roy, a highly regarded professor from the University of Miami in his 1989 book "The Streets of Coral Gables," Le Jeune Road was named after Charles LeJeune who came to Florida around 1900 and acquired 140 acresof coral rock land on which he used dynamite to create tillable soil, and then cultivated orange, grapefruit and lime groves. The road that was the boundary of his property became known as Le Jeune Road. In 1914, Charles Le Jeune sold his groves to Merrick, developer of Coral Gables, Florida, for $1,700,000. It runs adjacent to the east side and crosses the original entrance/exit to Miami International Airport.show more
