Stiltsville

For generations, Miami’s Stiltsville neighborhood in Biscayne Bay has been the subject of fascination, and occasional controversy. At one point, there were as many as 27 stilt homes, but now only seven survive, built on wooden and concrete pylons two miles offshore in what is now Biscayne National Park.  Stiltsville was once a remote getaway for politicians, judges and other Miami bigwigs to gamble and drink illegally during Prohibition. Later on, it became the site of legendary house parties on the water, including one that resulted in the collapse of the building.
