The Beach is portioned into North, Mid, and South Beach. South Beach (also known as SoBe, or simply the Beach), the area from Biscayne Street (also known as South Pointe Drive) one block south of 1st Street to about 23rd Street, is one of the more popular areas of Miami Beach. Although topless sunbathing by women is not officially legal, toplessness is tolerated on South Beach and in a few hotel pools on Miami Beach. The TV show Miami Vice helped make the area popular. Today, it is one of the richest commercial areas on the beach. Miami Beach, particularly Ocean Drive of what is now the Art Deco District, was also featured prominently in the 1983 film Scarface and the 1996 comedy The Birdcage.
Lincoln Road, running east-west parallel between 16th and 17th Streets, is a known spot for dining and shopping. It features galleries of well-known designers, artists, and photographers such as Romero Britto, Peter Lik, and Jonathan Adler. In 2015, the Miami Beach residents passed a law forbidding bicycling, rollerblading, skateboarding, and other motorized vehicles on Lincoln Road during busy pedestrian hours between 9:00 am and 2:00 am.
KindHealth has Miami medical marijuana card doctors near Normandy Isle. We are on 79th ST, just west of the JFK Causeway in an eye-popping art deco green building with orange trim. In Miami's Upper Eastside we are just 1/2 block east of Biscayne Blvd. The area is often referred to as Northeast Miami, Florida. It sits on Biscayne Bay just north of Edgewater, east of Little Haiti. To the north is the village of Miami Shores. The area contains many subdivisions. These include Magnolia Park, Bay Point, Morningside, Bayside, Belle Meade, and Palm Grove. The MiMo District along Biscayne Blvd hosts vibrant art galleries, shops, and cafes. KindHealth is one of the newer businesses serving Normandy Isle.
The Upper East Side is mainly residential. It is composed of historic homes from the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s. Biscayne Boulevard runs along the center of this neighborhood. The area is in revival mode. New mid/high-rise office towers, hotels, and apartments abound. The MiMo District sports a number of preserved hotels from the 1950s and 1960s. The area is being restored to swag hotels, avant-garde restaurants, and boutique shops.
