Welcome to Coconut Grove

One of the oldest areas of Miami, Coconut Grove was established as a small city in 1873, back when all there was down here was rich northerners, the Miami Hammock and lots of mosquitoes. The Grove, as it's normally called, has always been a unique place. In the beginning it attracted visionary people, like The Barnacle's Commodore Munroe (see last post), who wanted to share in this idyllic paradise, and throughout the years it has become a haven for artists and restaurants. Though it sometimes gets incredibly crowded, and it attracts an inordinate amount of posers, the Grove is a very charming place, and one of my favorites in Miami since the day I moved here. Posted by Picasa
