Art Deco Miami--A Virtual Walking Tour

With its concentration of Art Deco buildings, the identity of Miami is inextricably linked with this unique architectural style. Acclaimed tour guide Ronnit Vasserman will take us on an exploration of the iconic buildings located on Lincoln Rd, Washington Ave., Collins Ave and of course Ocean Drive.  Some of the buildings on this tour include the Colony Theater, The Fillmore, Miami Beach US Post Office, The Cadillac, the Breakwater, Hoffman Cafeteria Building and more.  In addition, we will discuss the decline of Miami tourism in the 70s and 80s and the people responsible for saving these architectural gems from the wrecking ball.

We will send the Zoom link prior to the event.

Please leave a message for Esther at 201.408.1456 if you'd like to register on the day of the event.
