Situated on the beautiful eastern shore of Biscayne Bay, Normandy Isles has become one of the most popular residential enclaves in the city of Miami Beach. The north side of the island mixes modest homes with classic garden apartments, many of which overlook the placid Normandy Waterway. On the southern side, multifamily buildings erected during the 1940s display the artistic skills of famous architects like Norman Giller and Gilbert Fain.
Two major roads bisect the hospitable neighborhood, 71st Street and Normandy Drive, where residents can find a thriving commercial area filled with banks, gas stations, stores, and popular ethnic restaurants. Normandy Isles sits just nine miles away from downtown Miami.
