I love westchester! I was raised in westchester. I still live here and I do not plan of moving any time soon. There are many stores, restaurants around. You do not need to go far to find anything you may need.
Provide the same modern infrastructure that is being allocated in other areas of Miami such as Coral Gables, Brickell, and Downtown. Due to it being a suburb for older generations its been left without consideration. Although, people don't realize younger generations of the middle class are slowly migrating into it.
