MIAMI BEACH LONGEST DAY OF THE YEAR PHOTOS 22
MIAMI BEACH LONGEST
DAY OF THE YEAR PHOTOS
Through real estate boom and bust, through incarnations as both God's waiting room and glitzy supermodel playground, Miami Beach endures.
The intrinsic value of art deco architecture, walkable sidewalks and human-scaled buildings serves South Beach inhabitants well whether they be World War II GIs, late 20th century Cuban exiles or 21st century European vacationers in search of sun, sand and sexiness amidst the neon confections of Ocean Drive and beyond.
To celebrate our love for Miami Beach, we roamed the historic Art Deco District from sunup to sundown on June 21, 2010.
This entire month, we will share the fine art images of Miami Beach taken by prize-winning writer-photographer Steve Wright.
Today's photo depicts The Starlite Hotel in the 700 block of Ocean Drive, which has a beautiful pylon-style neon sign.
