Exploring the popular Art Deco District at Ocean Drive in Miami Beach, Florida. This video was recorded prior to the imposed curfew in Ocean Drive.
I intentionally started my walk at Lummus Park to show the iconic Palm Trees of Miami Beach. This may be the last time we can see and enjoy them as the city plans of removing and replacing them with shade / canopy trees.
Ocean Drive is known mostly for its Art Deco hotels and restaurants/bars, many of which have been prominently featured in numerous movies and media. Among the most popular is the 1939 Colony Hotel, known as the most photographed art deco hotel. Renovated as a boutique hotel, it has been featured in cameos in scores of movies and TV shows, including the series Dexter. The Sunray Apartments were featured in the movie Scarface (1983).
The 2002 video game, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, based the look of its eponymous city on Miami. It has a replica of Ocean Drive with exactly the same name.
Ocean Drive is also the location of the famed Casa Casuarina, the residence of the late Italian fashion designer Gianni Versace. Since his death, the house was sold and adapted for use as a boutique hotel. It is one of the most photographed houses in North America.
