Miami Marine Stadium

Ever noticed that odd-looking concrete building while driving into Key Biscayne?
That building, believe it or not was once a thriving marine stadium and today it is considered to be one of America's most endangered historic places.
The zigzag canopy (now covered in graffiti) floats over Miami's beautiful skyline. 
In its 30 year lifespan, the venue served as a place for locals to watch water sports, concerts, rallies, etc. After Hurricane Andrew in 1992, the building was deemed unsafe by Miami-Dade County.
Walking into the stadium now, you'll find broken glass, empty cans of spray paint, rotting wood, rusty steel and walls full of graffiti. 
Despite it's condition, it is still and will always be one of the most amazing places in Miami.
