Miami As Xanadu

a: Miami ~
b: some crazy, alligator-infested Xanadu

What: "We started here, and the city has been good to us. Miami is like some crazy, alligator-infested Xanadu.

Addictive Miami

a: Miami ~
b: a drug

Miami As Teen

a: Miami ~
b: a rebellious teen

What: "Spreng is also good at the social aspect of art. To watch him in action at a party celebrating his work is to witness a Puckish creation expertly wheeling around in his motorized chair and dispensing a sound bite to his tribe: "Miami is like a rebellious teen. Sometimes you want to kill her, but in the end she's always good.""

The 3rd World Art Deco Capital

a: Miami ~
b: a third-world hellhole

What: "As FloridaSteve touched on above, much of the city of Miami is like a third-world hellhole that you would not want to drive through let alone live in. Yes, South Beach is a great place if you're young and carefree, but there are plenty of drawbacks to the U. -- namely that it's in Miami."

a: Miami ~
b: living in Cuba

What: "Miami is like living in Cuba. Spanish people EVERYWHERE. Lots of people, lots of things to do but my aunt hated the school system there and from what I've seen it's not that great. My cousin graduated and she didn't even know how to read in English. If you do decide to head that way look at the outskirts of Miami. Headed toward West Palm Beach and Ft. Pierce. I really like Ft. Pierce. Its a quiet town, the schools look good and you are close enough to the hustle and bustle of the big city."
