might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Aventura,
the W Island Blvd / E Island Blvd neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

the key. 76.4% of its residents are married, which is a higher
percentage than is found in 99.8% of the neighborhoods
Also, think about the people you know personally. How many of them would
purchase box seats to opening night at the symphony? How many of them
regularly attend gallery openings, or are the first to reserve tickets
to opening night at the ballet? If they're like most of us, they don't
do any of these things. But if you're among an exclusive crowd of wealthy
and refined patrons of the arts, then you'll feel right at home in
the W Island Blvd / E Island Blvd neighborhood: a neighborhood in which more
"urban sophisticates" live than 97.5% of neighborhoods
across the U.S. Here, your neighbors are defined as having urbane
tastes in literature, music, live theatre and the arts. They are wealthy,
educated, travel in style, and live a big city lifestyle whether or
not they live in or near a big city.
In addition to being an excellent choice for urban sophisticates, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for college students and highly educated executives.
Finally, if knowledge is power, then imagine the cumulative power of one neighborhood
where many of the adults have earned an advanced degree, such as a Masters,
law degree, medical degree, or even a Ph.D. This is certainly the case in

In fact, 94.7% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 99.2% of American neighborhoods.
