One Afternoon at Miami Marine Stadium

Miami Marine Stadium on Key Biscayne is located with a perfect view of downtown Miami.

In 1992, after Hurricane Andrew, the Stadium was declared an unsafe building under Miami-Dade County building code and shuttered by the City of Miami. An engineering study demonstrated it was sound and not damaged by the hurricane but it was closed to the public, nonetheless.

In ensuing years, the Stadium has become a haven for vandals, graffiti artists and taggers while politicians and developers have lobbied to demolish the Stadium.
