Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one
might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Miami,
the Brickell Ave / SE 7th St neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Often such coastal places have amenities and recreational activities on the waterfront

meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and
on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel,

In fact, with 60.9% of the residential real estate vacant, the Brickell Ave / SE 7th St neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 99.3% of the neighborhoods in America. This can either be because much of the property is seasonally occupied, like in many vacation areas, or that much of the real estate is more permanently abandoned.
Finally, the Brickell Ave / SE 7th St neighborhood is very unique in that it has one of the highest proportions of one, two, or no bedroom real estate of any neighborhood in America.
