Westchester is a quiet neighborhood west of Coral Gables. It is close to the expressway making the commute ideal to anywhere in Miami. It is smack in the middle of Miami, and all malls, airport, beaches, Brickel, Coconut Grove, and Downtown are just 10-20 minutes away. It has excellent public schools and bike lanes with bike rentals available. It has Tropical Park within minutes, a large Public Library, Aldi, Walmart, Ross, TJMaxx, Publix, Target, Walgreens, CVS all within minutes or walking distance. Westchester is the new Gables without the high taxes and stringent city codes.

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.
