A RECAP OF BRICKELL’S HISTORY (Miami’s Manhattan )
Filled with young professionals, families, and foreigners. This booming vigorous locale is an inactive town with little-to-no activities.
The town is well-known as Miami and South Florida’s bustling financial district. The towns’ name is after the Brickell family who moves to the area in the late 1800s and established a trading post. Just along with the skirts of Miami River to the north. Biscayne Bay to east. The Rickenbacker to the south. And I-95 to the west. This town is one of Miami’s oldest neighborhoods These past twenty years, the development of the town boomed vigorously. The town has changed thoroughly and continuously progressing.
BRICKELL’S FIRST INHABITANTS
Only a few know about who were the first inhabitants of Brickell. They are the Tequesta Indians. The evidence of the Tequesta settlement in Miami can be found at the Miami Circle archeological site at the opening of the Miami River to Biscayne Bay.
After the Tequesta were long gone the first pioneers who came to settle in Miami were from the northern United States. They were the colonists who established settlements scattered around South Florida. They’ve lived a quiet rural existence among the subtropical climate of Miami. Yet everything changed after Henry Flagler’s railroad came.
HOW IS BRICKELL TODAY?
It was not that long ago that Miami’s financial district south of the Miami River and bordering Biscayne Bay was a night time ghost town. Thanks to the young professionals who fled to the area for more exciting vicinage just to have their after-work drinks. As of today, there are hardly any reasons to leave the hood not unless you want to avoid the construction. This area is still in transition, that’s how hot it is.
