"NAPLES: The New Palm Beach

of Florida"

THE JEWISH NEWS,
Dec. 29, 1989

not be displaced despite the
extensive renovation in the
area.
A sense of history is on
these streets, but in Miami
Beach, "history" has a
modern meaning. The city
was not incorporated until
1915. Before that, it was a
mangrove swamp.
Then came Carl Fisher, con-
sidered the city's founder,
who dredged, developed and
created 12 separate islands.
Fisher spent thousands of
dollars to plant shrubs and
trees and create a luxury
resort town. "And he succeed-
ed beyond his own wildest im-
aginings," says Hoberman.
As Miami Beach grew in
popuarity, so did its Jewish
population. Many Jewish
tourists came to the South
Beach area. At first two
months was the entire tourist
season. But soon snow birds
were flying to Florida for six
months. Others stayed
permanently.
Later, as the area started to
decline, many Jewish
residents moved northward to
suburbs like Del Ray Beach.
But the many remained, liv-
ing in the hotels that tourists
now stop to admire and
photograph.
These residents have their
choice of synagogues. In
South Beach, they range from
modest shuls to imposing
edifices like Emanu-El at
17th and Washington.
One of the more unusual is
an Art Deco style synagogue
on a quiet residential street.
Beth Tfilah, has a stepped-
style roof that gives it a
distinctive look.
Besides the synagogues and
kosher stores, the old-time
Jewish residents also enjoy
the companship of their peers.
They play cards or share news
while they relax in the
sunshine.
, Along the east side of
Ocean Drive is a wide, white
beach. Some say it's the best
beach in this resort city, one
of the few places where no
high-rise hotels obstruct the
ocean view. Instead, across
from the beach is a row of
pastel-colored buildings and
plam trees.
Elderly residents enjoy the
ambiance along with the yup-
pies who have discovered the
area. At newly renovated
Lummus Park, kids play on
colorful sliding boards;
couples walk hand in hand,
and old folk sit and shmooz on
park benches.
The neighborhood still
belongs to them. ❑
