While the city’s diverse neighborhoods—from the brightly-colored streets of the Design District to Wynwood’s famous graffiti, Little Haiti’s vibrant culture to South Beach’s style—all have their merits, there are few enclaves that come close to East Edgewater in terms of amenities and accessibility—and both longtime residents of the Magic City and newcomers alike are taking notice.
