It's a long story -- hardly worth going into here -- but after this place was declared a Brownfield Site, we abandoned it for the NEW! IMPROVED!! Not Now Silly Newsroom.

No Safe Harbour In Coconut Grove

The exact moment the meeting exploded into chaos. Note
the police officer about to lead the angry gentleman away.
Last night I traveled down to Coconut Grove to attend a meeting of the Center Grove Homeowners Association. Fireworks were expected and I wanted to capture it as it happened. 

The reason for the potential fireworks was simple: many of the folks of Center Grove are vehemently against a proposed new development on the waterfront called Grove Harbour. [I like that it's spelled the way I would spell it.] Both Miami Mayor Tomás Regalado and [allegedly] corrupt Commissioner Marc D. Sarnoff were on the agenda to sell their vision of the waterfront development and why this project is good for the community.
