Casa Marina is a beautiful neighborhood bounded by United, Vernon and White Streets, Atlantic Boulevard and Steven Avenue. It is named for Henry Flagler's hotel of the same name in the area.

"Cayo Hueso" is the original Spanish name for the island of Key West. It literally means "bone key." It is said that the island was littered with the remains (bones) from a Native American battlefield or burial ground. The most widely accepted theory of how the name changed to Key West is that it is a false-friend anglicization of the word, on the ground that the word hueso sounds like "west" in English.
