Fisher Island

    Newer Older

    Fisher Island is an artificial island on unincorporated land in Miami-Dade County, Florida. Named for automotive parts pioneer and Miami Beach developer Carl G. Fisher, who once owned it, Fisher Island is 3 miles off shore of Miami, Florida. No road or causeway connects to the island, which is accessible by private ferry and helicopter. Once a one-family island home of the Vanderbilts, and later several other millionaires, it was sold for development in 1960s.

    Today, Fisher Island is occupied again, but remains a very exclusive and wealthy community. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Fisher Island had the highest per capita income of any place in the United States in 2000.(wiki)

      Great shot - it looks like something between paradise and prison - depending on how you look at the world.
