I know someone who might start working at the UM Miller school of Medicine right by Jackson Memorial hospital and would like to know what area is decent near there to live. He would like to be able to walk or ride the train to work. What is the rental cost for a 2/1 or 1/1 apartment in that area of the city of Miami?

Tell him to forget about the idea of walking to work. The hospital is in a bad area. The closest, good area, would be Brickell. It is made up mostly high rise apartments and Condos. It isn't cheap but it is very convenient and close to the metro rail.

You think he can live in Brickell with a 45-50K salary? He doesn't care about living in a "bad area" as long as the actual apartment looks good. He's used to living in so called bad neighborhoods and dangerous cities.

South Miami. He can find an apt in that area for about $700. A better one for $900. He can walk to the train. 20 min to work.

What about Coconut Grove? It's a bit closer to Jackson than South Miami, is a lively area and and is near Metrorail but I don't know what rents go for in the Grove these days.

Not bad so there's nothing in the downtown area these days for 1200-1500? What about those new buildings in overtown?

OP - If he wants to ride the train and walk to work, look at the Brickell, South Miami area and the Dadeland area.

Doesn't include walking time. South Miami apartments are not very close to the metro station, and you have to deal with crossing US1. Count on at least 45 mins. door to door. $700 is very difficult to find nowadays...expect to pay closer to $900/1br in SoMi.

Dadeland is another possibility which is more realistic if you want 2 br. The Falls area would be quite cheap, but you'd have to take the busway to the train.
