Miami Is the Posterchild For Pandemic Boomtown

Miami has boomed over the course of the pandemic as restaurants, attractions and retail shops remained open during lockdown and new growth popped up, reports the New York Times. Tourist numbers have been growing too, with the week ending 21MAY, the number of pax going through MIA was 1,010,657, a 20 per cent increase over the same period in 2019.

The Times highlights new openings in the city, from a Michelin-starred Korean steakhouse and a civic project in Downtown Miami which is transforming barren lands beneath the Metrorail system into native-plant gardens. Hotel openings include a former artist’s colony reimagined as Esme Hotel and St. Regis Bal Harbor north of South Beach.
