Re the July 21 article Car-free and frustrated: I, too, live in Brickell and I have been delighted with the wonderful transportation system in downtown Miami. I can easily get to the University of Miami hospitals, the airport, the Arsht Center, the museums and hundreds of great restaurants. And when the new Brickell City Center opens, with its great shops, it will be even better. I almost never use my car.
I moved to Miami after living for 35 years in Los Angeles, where I lived in the hills of Granada Hills, Beverly Hills and Brentwood. In none of those places was it even remotely possible to use public transportation, because it didn’t exist.
Improvements can always be made, but anyone with any knowledge of the rest of the world will find Brickell/downtown the most liveable city in the world.
