Dinner Key Marina
Yesterday, in Part 1, we showed photos of the damage done to Miami after Hurricane Irma.
Today we have aerial photos and a video of an area that was hit hardest by the storm - Coconut Grove.
At Bayshore Landing Marina many boats and yachts were sunk or overturned by the Hurricane. A lot of damage occurred at Scotty's Landing and The Chart House with the dock being torn apart. The railing was ripped apart at the shoreline around The Chart House.
Sailboats were pushed into Peacock Park from the storm and a dead body was found at The Mutiny along South Bayshore Drive.
Miami is slowly starting to recover from Hurricane Irma.

On August 12th, 2015 Scotty's Landing in Coconut Grove was given 60 days notice to move out of the building in documents obtained by Crespogram.
On October 12, The Grove Harbour Investment Group, led by Geraldo Leyva and Eduardo J Garcia plan on taking control of Scotty's Landing after years of legal battle over the site. However, this does not necessary mean that Scotty's will close right away after the 60 day notice. The Miami Herald states that, "the Grove Bay partners plan to operate some of the existing businesses for at least several months, which some believe is motivated more by existing profits than by a push to develop."
The Grove Harbour Investment Group won the bid to develop the site, which will include restaurants, public pier, boat storage and restoration of the old Pan Am hangars. This was approved by voters in a November 2013 referendum and requires the group to invest $18 million into the site and $5 million into a parking garage.
According to the Miami Herald, Commissioner Marc Sarnoff said, "he’s been told that the developer plans to begin some demolition before the end of the year, and start work on the marina in the first quarter of next year."
