Lincoln Road Mall - Pedestrian Mall, SoBe

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Lincoln Road Mall. Around 1912, Carl Fisher had this road cleared of mangrove forest and it eventually became the town's social center.

Around 1960, Miami Beach architect Morris Lapidus, was commissioned to redesign Lincoln Road. Lapidus's design, complete with gardens, fountains and an amphitheater, reflected the Miami Modern Architecture, or "MiMo", 50's style. This road was closed to traffic and became one of the nation's first pedestrian malls.

Carl Fisher, the wealthy original developer of Miami Beach, envisioned Lincoln Road to be the Miami Beach counterpart to Fifth Avenue in New York, or Rodeo Drive in Los Angeles. And indeed in the boom times of South Beach in the 1930's, 1940's, and 1950's, it could match those upscale fashionable shopping districts.

Most restaurants offer indoor/ outdoor seating, including in the middle of the pedestrian mall area. People watching on Lincoln Road is the best in the world. There seems to be a constant flow of stunningly attractive women and men passing by, and many wear fashionable clothes or almost nothing with a major dose of sexy.

TOM as a picture is great, love the zebra and reflections, and what happened there is so desolate?, known as the area in the 70s when I was the little train, carrying you, all over the place, were precious times, since waned, and again returned to shine in the 90s, and happens now ..... *? * that makes me sad to see it like that, because there was very happy when my parents still lived, I'm sorry because that Art Deco architecture is beautiful in that area,, Greetings, good hopefully luck returns to be the place so beautiful that I remember Good luck to the Lincoln Mall!

There were some renovation going on, but otherwise, the mall was vibrant and alive.

I was little bit out of place there, as most people were showing off there body, tan and latest design outfit.
