I agree with logybody 100%logybogy said:I don't think Miami is that spread out, maybe compared to Manhattan, but have you travelled and seen the rest of Florida? Miami does pretty well in that regard.
What I don't like about Miami is the crime rate and poverty. It's still way too high in too many places. It basically makes a good chunk of the city off limits to me and places I avoid like the plague. But it's getting better, slowly but surely. The land is worth too much to keep Overtown looking like a bombed out third world country. It'll gentrify whether the residents like it or not.
