Hello all,

I am a 24-year-old male who will be moving from the northern part of the state to begin a job in Doral (near NW 87th Ave and NW 58th St) in the next few weeks.

Could anyone help me out by recommending good areas to search for a studio or 1-bedroom apartment? I am trilingual (English/Spanish/Portuguese), so language issues are not a concern. I will be making about $41,000 to start and would prefer to live in an area with at least some people around my age; safety is also a concern. Though I wouldn't mind a moderate commute, I do not want to be stuck in traffic for hours on 826 or 836.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you

If you wAnt to live close Miami Springs but you will find a lot of families living there. Just make sure you don't take 36 st to get there(at least before 72 ave)

you can live in Miami Beach or Brickell but the commute will be a little long 30-50 minutes. If you take the Palmetto south the stretch between NW 36 st and 836 is very croweded, bumper to bumper during traffic hours and when you get to 836 is just as bad. An alternative for Miami beach is going through the back streets and take the Julia Turtle(112) on 42 ave and NW 36. You could avoid the Doral, Palmetto and 836 traffic that way

Doral wouldn't be a bad option as far as safe neighborhood, though it will be kind of like living in the suburbs. Second Brickell if you're ok with that commute.
