for a 19 yr old male?

Can I actually make something decent of myself monetarily there in the Coral Gables/Miami area? I'm from a very small, jobless town in Mississippi.

Coral Gables is one of the best areas in Miami. The minus is that it is obviously more expensive.

A lot of people are in unscrupulous businesses, drugs, scams, money laundering, dirty money from overseas, etc. Don't get me wrong there are a lot of professionals and hard workers it just seems like they are the minority sometimes.

Like, I run a multibillion "unscrupulous" scam money laundering/drug business that enslaves millions of kids in Africa. My Jewelry store, which also enslaves kids, is just a cover up to keep my name clean... which is unnecessary because the feds work for me.

I find it hard to believe that there are millions of people in the South Florida metro area but no one can make a decent living other than by illegal means... come on...

I'm from Louisiana and you're going to tell me about bad places?

I was born in Louisiana. For all of my life I've had to go back and forth from LA and MS every two weeks due to parents.

Try the clear water Tampa area its easier and cheaper to set up a life there, you wouldn't get much of a look in in Miami unless you on the edge of town and I'm guessing you not looking to get into the wine or book shop business so coral gables may not be for you either
