Brickell is a great place to live! All of the condos are built on top of the city and retail making everything walkable. The metromover is also great for getting around the heart of the city. I love the close proximity to coral gables, south beach, and other boroughs.
They cleaned up this area a lot and have built numerous new buildings (residential, retail, parking, hotels) making it a great place to live!

Brickell is a beautiful neighborhood in Miami,FL. It is also known as the financial district. Brickell is home to many beautiful skyscrapers and is seafront. Not the best place for children as it is more focused on adults, children, however, are still welcomed in the area.
What I like about Brickell is that is near my school.
Brickell has many buildings and that makes it one of the only or the only place in Miami that you can go from one place to another without a vehicle.
It is also full of life because is the center of Miami.
The nightlife is really good because Brickell offers many bars, and clubs since is a very transited zone.
However, everything comes with a price and that price is that is very expensive to live in Brickell (especially rent).
