If a new survey by Time Out Magazine is to be believed, Brickell is the place to be, ranking among the coolest neighborhoods in the world, in fact, it’s the only neighborhood in Florida to make the list.
It’s a big upgrade for a place that readers of the magazine found to be “overrated” back in 2019 — but things like The Underline, the new outdoor park under the elevated train in Brickell, have made it a more appealing place to live.
There’s also a growing demographic in Brickell.
“You’re also seeing a growth in families like mine. You know we were once single people, you get married then have children, and you end up loving the city and you want to stay here,” said Ape.
For all its glitz and glamour, there is one thing that Brickell can’t quite figure out — that is what to do about traffic whenever the Brickell Avenue Bridge is up.
