Neighborhoods Inside North Beach, Miami Beach: Local Life on Normandy IsleSeptember 4, 2019
Just across the 79th Street Causeway is a yellow brick road to Normandy Isle. With its post-World War II MiMo style architecture, frequent marine life sightings, and European charm unique to the island, it’s an enchanting place to live with a lively feel keeping residents engaged with neighborhood shops and plentiful city amenities.
For those that enjoy supporting local business, there’s a lively farmer’s market and plenty of locally owned restaurants that range in cuisine, from Argentinian to Venezuelan to Californian and, of course, the island staple, Cuban. There are also sights to see like the Normandy Fountain, which was nearly at the water-edge at the time it was built in the 1920s, a vision executed by Henri Levy. He also contributed to some of the film and cinema culture in Miami Beach as a successful silent film theatre owner. Normandy Isle locals enjoy many community events with live music and delicious food at the fountain like Salsa Saturdays, Motown Brunch, and a Reggae BBQ! The city of Miami Beach and the local businesses understand the deep community strength brought through these local events. Neighbors, near and far, are excited for the upcoming Normandy Isle events.
