Beautiful place to live, but fairly expensive.
Gorgeous area and outstanding schools and public services
(especially their Fire Department.)
Yes, of course people speak English there.

Beautiful, affluent area in which nearly everyone speaks English.

I have friends that have lived there for years and hate it but then I have friends that have lived there for 10 years or so and like it (not love it). Spanish is spoken a lot on the island one tells me. But I think that if you don't know spanish you can get by fine. As far as rude experiences, well its still in Miami so you can experience this anyplace.

It was a nice place in the past and very inexpensive. Most people were too smart to want to live on a man-made island only 3 feet above sea level:

History of real estate on Key Biscayne

Today it is full of delusional migrants who love overpriced real estate. In other words it is a dangerous place when the "big one" hits, but a low-crime isolated area you may like. Just bring plenty of $$$$$$$$$$ because you can't get a good deal on a Mackle home anymore.

Nope, rude people exist there. You can't move anywhere actually, rude people everywhere. Where do you go? For someone looking for people who "speak English", may I ask what an "experance" is? I know that isn't Spanish or English.

Yea that sounds a lot like what's happening in the Keys. But Key Biscayne is a lot more expensive.

I like going to the Key but I wouldn't want to live there. Everytime I go there it seems like it takes forever to actually get to the residential parts after you cross the toll, but I guess its not that long. Still it seems a little boring to me, although the beaches there are nice.
