Downtown Miami is the Historical district of the city of Miami, the largest in the state of Florida and the third largest in the United States behind those of New York and Chicago.
Brickell Avenue and Biscayne Boulevard are the main north-south road corridors of the city center, and Flagler Street is the main east-west axis.
Downtown Miami is divided into four distinct areas, Midtown, Park West, Central Business District and Brickell.
The most northerly area is Midtown, which is divided into two sub-districts, Wynwood and Edgewater. South of Midtown are Park West and the southern part of the Miami River.
Public transportations in the city center is more used than in any other part of Miami. The Metromover is a fully automated tandem system that has three lines that intersect in the city center. Miami Metro also serves Miami International Airport and Miami Central Station.
Downtown, also the home to many consulates, is revitalizing with the rehabilitation of its business district and the construction of new modern buildings in its northernmost part (Ten Museum Park in particular). You can find the Central Business District of Miami and the financial district of Brickell.
A new development plan is underway for the area behind the Freedom Tower. True urban and financial heart of Miami, Downtown has been made new with more than 23,000 new homes. The district hosts the offices of large corporations nestled in often luxurious buildings and more and more private individuals who take up residence in huge glass towers.
