I've lived here just about my whole life and I love it here. I like how everything is close together and I can walk to near by store. There is so much to do in Miami its nice. The only thing I would change is the roads, there is always so much traffic.

The area we live in is friendly, safe and somewhat conveniently located. There is some traffic congestion, but that is hard to avoid in Miami. The homes are a bit dated, but in overall good shape and well maintained. We have restaurants and cafes nearby that offer foods that are familiar to our hispanic culture. The population in my particular neighborhood is pleasantly diverse. My family feels comfortable in this area.
It is a great neighborhood, centrally located to almost all of Miami. Low crime rate. Close to fire and police departments, malls, shopping. Good school districts. The only drawback is that Miami is a very expensive city to live in for the average family
