Description

Discover a side of Miami so hidden even the natives don't know it exists. A space rocket abandoned in the swamp, a futuristic expo that never was, a city wiped off the map, a national monument at the bottom of the ocean.

Miami-Dade has seen many places come and go in its 178-year history. In this book is a collection of places abandoned, demolished, hidden in plain sight, or that never were - places that helped shape Miami-Dade into the amazing county it is today. Photographs, addresses, and coordinates are provided to take a "then-and-now" look into the Magic City's hidden history.
