    "University of Miami douche bags"... Funny map.

    I'm going to move this thread to the "Living and Relocating" forum.

    Funny! What does Downtown 2.0 mean about Brickell? And what would the map say about Sunny Isles?

    Why does it say "Jews" up near Normandy Isle? I thought Normandy Isle is like "Little Buenos Aires"?
    Isn't the Jewish area is near 41st St. / Mid-Beach? I've read that part of 41st St is called, "Littel Tel Aviv"?

    It's a pretty funny map, overall.

    Gotta agree with Glenn, I didn't know Normandy Isle was known for its Jewish section!

    Do you live in Brickell or Sunny Isles? Could you describe the one you live in? I'm just curious because 1. I'm interested in learning more about Brickell to see if I'd want to live there. 2. My friend is moving to Sunny Isles and other that saying "it's nice" and the condo is a high rise on the water, he doesn't seem to know much about the place.

    I live in Sunny Isles. It is mostly high rise condos on the beach and smaller buildings off the beach. There are 2 large strip mall like plazas that, due to their size, end up having a lot of foot traffic. There are some interesting stores. The beach here is great. It is midway between Miami and Fort Lauderdale, and a 20 min drive down to south beach so location is great. Overall I like it. I think the map would label it as "Russians" since there are many

    As for Brickell, I visit often. To me it is the most city-like area of Miami and there are lots cool places to go. It's one of the area's I'm considering when I buy a place. Others here that live in Brickell can tell you more

    I agree ... the map needs revision. Also, it's missing some sections.

    Homestead = rednecks

    My guess is that it's using the tech/social media phrase "2.0" to mean Brickell = downtown wannabee or version 2 of downtown

    Funny you said that Maria. We selected the Brickell area for a downtown feel to compensate for our wilderness setting in CFL. Being on the water at the same time was what sealed the deal.

    Default Homestead = Renecks and Mexicans

    Because of the the large farming community, you can also find lots of Mexicans living in Homestead.

    Most locals will tell you, the best Mexican restaurants in Miami are located out in Homestead.

    Very true Gus ... was wondering what would be a funny name for "Mexicans"

    Miamicans

    Isn't it folklore that Homestead was a major Puerto Rican community before Andrew ? Seems they all relocated to Orlando / Kissimmee.

    All kidding aside, I do think Brickell today is very much a "2.0" version of that whole east side/downtown/biscayne corridor attempt at revival.

    Edgwater, Morningside, El Portal and Miami Shores could be labeled as" First Time Home Buyers Who Paid Way Too Much For Their House."

    And don't more "Rich Latinos" live in Coral Gables now?

    Gus, I hear Edgewater/Morningside is also friendly with the gay community. Gotta have the gays thrown in the mix too!
