By the way, "Florida" doesn't mean "feast of flowers" but simply "flowery".
All the towers no, but most of the towers that have been open long enough are largely occupied, mostly by renters. The mostly un-occupied ones tend to be ultra luxury buildings that don't have much of rental market.

And the unoccupied ones are mostly owned as second and third homes for jet setters anyway. This is Miami, and that's the way it is! Thanks for dropping in Dave. Good to see you.

No need to dis Philly. Philadelphia was smart enough 200 years ago to incorporate residential with retail. Philadelphia is light years ahead of Miami in terms of being a "real" cohesive walkable city. There is a new glamorous Philly along with the old gritty wonderful city. Do you know anything about Tony Goldman?

On the other hand we have a lot of history and a lot of historic architecture. Miami is a young city and there is a lot of vitality about it. Havana is a much more walkable city because almost noone owns a car, and those that do drive these wonderful old 1950's Studebakers, Ramblers, and Chevys which they keep in tip top shape.

I don't see any one city as being better than another because of course nobody lives in the perfect city and all cities have different things to offer as well as their flaws, but Miami being a young city means it has a lot of unrealized potential and I see the city as just having gotten its adolescent growth spurt. The city is in an awkward adolescent stage in the process of becoming whatever it will become when it grows up so to speak. That is why now is a great time to be alive and living in Miami if you're into this sort of thing. Here are some more shots from my first aerial assault on the city.

Quantum when you bring us street level, those are the one stand out from the bunch, why dont you also start bringing different neighborhoods of Miami, if not much to ask. I guess one forumer here gave suggestions of different streets and avenues with pedestrian life, I waited for those pics.

By the way, I also been enjoying Miami discussions, including from haters, not all threads have come up with interesting points of urbanism like this one.

Throughout the course of this thread, I have included shots from Little Haiti, Little Havana, Overtown, Brickell Village, Midtown, Mimo (Miami Modern which is my neighborhood), and the Design District. This second shot in this particular post is of NE 87th Street, which is the northern boundary of the Miami city limit. The third pic is leaving Miami and entering Miami Shores. The skyscrapers in the third pic at the end of the vista are Jade Beach and Jade Ocean in Sunny Isles Beach which were shown up close earlier in the thread.
