An Aerial Tour Of The Abandoned Miami Marine Stadium

The Miami Marine Stadium has been abandoned since 1992 after Hurricane Andrew. City officials deemed the building to be structurally unsafe and ordered it closed. The stadium was used for boat races and concerts such as Gloria Estefan and Jimmy Buffett.

While the stadium has sat abandoned for twenty two years, it has become a haven for graffiti artists who have used the stadium walls as a canvas to display their work.

Friends of Miami Marine Stadium are working towards raising money and restoring the stadium for future use. They can be contacted at their website.
