"But, we have plenty of areas where we need infill development, so we ought to keep the Urban Development Boundary where it is and stop moving it farther west. I think areas like Allapattah & Wynwood are perfect areas that can be "beautified" and improved, and no swamps need to be drained. I love having the wide open spaces of the Everglades next to us. I go kayaking during the winter months and it is absolutely beautiful. I would hate for more of it to be destroyed."




"Regarding Doral, I was there this morning for a meeting. I like Doral. I like Doral a lot, and I am very open to living out there one day. Then I will change my name from Wynwood to Doral. I mean Doral has been built, so no reason to complain about environmental destruction. But I like Fountainbleau too. Both are different, and really people need to check out both areas (and others) before deciding anything. There are hot women in both neighborhoods. I do not discriminate, I am equal opportunity all the way."

true. doral has its share of eye candy. my coworkers pick their lunch spots based around it =P


"My main issue is when Anglos complain because they feel like they are a minority and it makes them "uncomfortable". They walk into a restaurant in Doral, people look great, sexy women, everyone speaking Spanish - and the Anglos hate it. Honestly, I think it is jealousy, because they want Latinos to be lower class with no money - which is not at all what Doral is."

thats not true. my coworkers from the west coast of the US liked doral because it seemed more affluent and the people werent as aggressive. as i drove my boss into doral he immediately said. oh it looks better over here.

I think South Miami flows better into Pinecrest and both have a similar look,I really like South Miami east of US 1 but even going back to when I was a young kid I never liked Coral Gables.

Did anyone grow up or live in Miami in the early-mid 80's? The early 90's?

  • Fountainblue - I went to St Brendan in the 80's and remember Flagler, but Fountainblue was one lane each way... I also remember my friends living in Fountainblue and that area being bad as)s, great..I lived in Coral Gables back then. "That" was a different Fountainblue, different demographics, different education level of households, different incomes than now, and so one.
  • Doral - In the late 80's - early 90's - 25 street was one lane each way, and 87 ave wasn't as wide. There was NO food places around, no Hooter's, no Walmart.. I remember having to drive out to go out to lunch every day. I remember the wait for Hooter's to finally open when it was being built, lol..

The problem with South Miami, is that it has a very undesirable "area"...where as Coral Gables does not, at all...
