Art Deco Historic District
1001 Ocean Dr, Art Deco Welcome Center, Miami Beach, FL 33139 305-672-2014
Description: SOUTH BEACH. The streamlined buildings that comprise this district reflect the architecture of the '20s and '30s, when wealthy vacationers made Miami the resort destination of choice. The area, after its initial heyday, experienced a period of neglect, and tenants were largely retirees. Reinvigorated in recent decades, the pastel-hued neighborhood is again in vogue, mixing old and new with aplomb. The Art Deco Welcome Center provides a great introduction to the area and carries maps of notable structures. Tours of the district can be arranged through the Miami Design Preservation League.

1933 - 1945 Meridian Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139 305-538-1663
Description: SOUTH BEACH. Intensely moving, this memorial created by artist-architect Kenneth Treister honors victims and offers solace to survivors. Included in its design are an arbor that depicts the history of the Holocaust in black granite and a tunnel that opens up to "The Sculpture of Love and Anguish." This enormous bronze arm, with its base of writhing human forms, is variously interpreted as a symbol of despair or hope. The memorial also encompasses a reflecting pool and walls inscribed with the names of thousands of victims. The overall effect is visually and emotionally stunning.
