In preparation for Urban Beach Week, WLRN-Miami Herald News asked members of the Public Insight Network to weigh in on the festival.
Last year during Memorial Day, I hid out along the West Avenue corridor. When I went out on Sunday afternoon to the Lincoln Road Farmer's Market, I was shocked at how empty it was.
Dear New York Times,
Hello! It’s Miami! We wanted to write and let you know that we’re a real place. You’ve seen us before. We’re the ones that had that land boom in the 1920s.
We’re writing to you from the offices of WLRN, because we care. We love the Gray Lady. We wouldn’t dare see her honor besmirched because of us, Miami.
