One of my favorite neighborhoods, if not, my favorite neighborhood in Miami is Coconut Grove. All the old wood panel houses of yesteryear are like a hidden treasure. Miami is technically not that old of a city. So to see so many vintage houses back-to-back-to-back in one area is pretty amazing. Though the area is a bit poverty stricken, at one point some houses like these were going for hundreds of thousands of dollars at the height of the real estate boom in 2004/2005. They have so much character and each are almost one of a kind and some are from that 1910’s and 1920’s era. Everything was smaller back then…some of these houses are the size of some people’s modern day master bedrooms. So recently, I took a little trip to Coconut Grove with my trusty Instagram app open and started snapping away. Part Two coming next week.
