Miami Beach in Florida.
Miami Beach is a city in Miami-Dade County, Florida, United States. The city was incorporated on March 26, 1915. It is located on a barrier island between Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic Ocean; the Bay separates Miami Beach from Downtown Miami. The city is often referred to under the umbrella term of "Miami", despite being a distinct municipality. The area colloquially referred to as "South Beach" is a neighborhood comprising the southernmost 23 blocks of the City of Miami Beach. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 87,933. 55.5% of the population was foreign born. A 2009 population estimate for the city was 88,065. Miami Beach has been one of America's pre-eminent beach resorts for almost a century.
South Beach (also known as SoBe, or simply The Beach, the area from 1st street to about 25th street) is one of the more popular areas of Miami Beach. Topless sunbathing is legal on certain designated areas of the beach. Before the TV show Miami Vice helped make the area popular, SoBe was under urban blight, with vacant buildings and a high crime rate. Today, it is considered one of the richest commercial areas on the beach, yet poverty and crime still remain in some places near the area.
Miami Beach, particularly Ocean Drive of what is now the Art Deco District, was also featured prominently in the 1983 feature film Scarface and the 1996 comedy The Birdcage.
The New World Symphony Orchestra is based in Miami Beach, Florida, under the direction of Michael Tilson Thomas.
