|The view from my grandparents' apartment|
|The Art Deco District is my favorite district|
It's a strange city, though, Miami. My grandfather did an inordinate amount of research about it for his novel (which is getting rave reviews and can be purchased here*). As far as I can tell, if Miami were a person, they'd be a med student with a penchant for body shots and interior decorating. It's Jewish, Latin American, Caribbean, and all set in a pastel art deco paradise. These opposing sensibilities and demands form a ying and yang that allows for the best of both worlds. What it all comes down to is that Miami has the hottest nightclubs with the hottest girls and the best hospitals when those girls get alcohol poisoning.
Low brow and high brow culture fight for space but seem to coexist pretty seamlessly, and you'll find hardcore S&M shops next to high end restaurants and shops. For everywhere your day takes you, you know.

*this is an obligatory family plug, but it really is supposed to be a fantastic book according to people who don't share his last name.
