Studio 54 Street

revenge of the electric car?

Driving towards the setting sun along North West 54th Street is a sobering ride up and down a slice of the swamp.

The concrete underpass at the highway on NW seventh avenue is flagged by mammoth billboard structures that dwarf all other man-made things in sight.

But soon we are swept into a landscape of muchkin nonchitecture that is downright humbling and bewildering.

Contemporary Nonchitecture 

Taking a drive along any of the many side-roads that typify the south florida underbelly, one is quickly confronted with graphic proof that we are in fact a disgruntled developing nation in the grips of a corporate economic stranglehold unfolding.

  1. That gas station in the first pic is actually on Biscayne and thus NE 54th Street (just south of Soyka). It's getting remodeled, hopefully it's a lot nicer than it was. They are painting a mural on the Biscayne side of it now.
