TBT (April 23, 2015) - Ocean Drive 39 years ago was very quiet compared to Ocean Drive in 2015. A CVS has now opened at 728 Ocean Drive and where Scarface was filmed.
The photo on the top left is what Ocean Drive looked liked in 1980. South Beach was a quiet area were many retirees lived including the buildings in the photos. The Art Deco buildings were falling into disrepair and the public was calling on the city to demolish them. Fast forward 35 years later and Ocean Drive is one of the most popular tourist destinations on the planet. The Art Deco buildings were saved and Ocean Drive is now lined with restaurants and palm trees.
