You can also enjoy the abundant colorful birds like the pelicans and ospreys, marine and aquatic life like dolphins, fishes, and manatees. There are spacious and open public parks to spend time together with loved ones. The sweeping stunning water views over Biscayne Bay and Miami Beach are just priceless. A relaxing experience is just looking at the water where you will be enthralled by the rich diversity of the nature around you at the Upper East Side. There is simply no dull moment - every day you can create warm, beautiful memories in this community.
 
 
Going back from the 1920s to the 1940s, Biscayne Boulevard as the heart of the neighborhood was interspersed with both mid-rise and high-rise office buildings, hotels, and apartments. The Modern Miami or MiMo Historic District starts from Biscayne Boulevard encompassing several MiMo hotels from the 1950s to 1960s which have been preserved then upgraded later. They turned into any of these: restaurants, stores, and boutique hotels. MiMo strikes that unusual balance between acclaiming the local history while still being relevant to today's Miami.
 
Upper Eastside has been one of the most appealing neighborhoods to live in or invest in this part of South Florida. Now, there are more housing options aside from the stunning single-family homes it has been known for. Several developers are heading north as the latest trend, thinking beyond the more popular areas, such as Wynwood and Brickell.
 

Location

 
The Upper Eastside is also simply called East Side or Northeast Miami. It is situated along the south of the village of Miami Shores, north of Edgewater, east of Little Haiti, and sitting on the Biscayne Bay. In the geographical direction from south to north then east to west – it includes several charming and peaceful communities such as Magnolia Park, Bay Point, Morningside, Bayside, Belle Meade, Shorecrest, and Palm Grove.
 
It is gradually becoming one neighborhood to discover and explore in Miami. Nearby areas are Little Havana and Little Haiti, this area is one of the nearest communities to the water outside of South Beach. It is full of a rich culture. There are posh mansions among the much smaller cottage-style homes as well as the famous cluster of historic buildings and low-rise motels which are rarely found in other cities, or parts of Miami.
 

Architecture, History, and Culture

 
The Biscayne Boulevard as the hallway of Miami's Upper East Side is a picture of art, history, and architecture from the 1920s to the present.
 
 
There's a 27-block district on Biscayne Boulevard (between 50th and 77th Streets) being revived, these past architectural treasures are being restored to their old glory days. Now, a new identity is being set as the MiMo Biscayne Boulevard Historic District. This restored strip is easily striking with its boutiques, stores, small restaurants, and food joints homed now in renovated retro-designed establishments.
 
These areas along Biscayne Boulevard have been preserved as this is the way most locals wanted it. Aside from the exceptional MiMo architecture, these structures carry a huge impact on the community. They show the diverse landscapes of Miami and its eclectic demographics – all shaping its character now.
 
The Vagabond Hotel is the crowning glory of the Upper East Side’s MiMo – with its famed lobby of a bar and restaurant. It continues to be a trendy and cool hangout for most locals and tourists where they enjoy DJ parties, live music, and movie screenings in the hotel's poolside.
