It would appear as though Miami Beach is no longer the “in-place” for the glitterati, because of rowdy behavior:
South Beach is losing its appeal with some buyers “because of how loud it can be, how dangerous it can be,” said Antonio del Rosario, a New York real-estate agent who also works in Miami. “Many of my clients don’t want to be there.”
Let me tell it like it is. I used to work for a South Florida-based company, spent a week a month down there for nearly four years, and South Beach was always a scummy area. So no matter how trendy the place, or how highly it was regarded by “celebrities”, I never felt safe there and couldn’t wait to leave.
I mean, Madonna supposedly owns a condo there, which should tell you all you need to know.
