The park is the largest tropical wilderness in the United States and the largest wilderness of any kind east of the Mississippi River. An average of one million people visit the park each year. Everglades is the third-largest national park in the contiguous United States after Death Valley and Yellowstone. UNESCO declared the Everglades & Dry Tortugas Biosphere Reserve in 1976 and listed the park as a World Heritage Site in 1979, and the Ramsar Convention included the park on its list of Wetlands of International Importance in 1987. Everglades is one of only three locations in the world to appear on all three lists. Most national parks preserve unique geographic features; Everglades National Park was the first created to protect a fragile ecosystem. The Everglades are a network of wetlands and forests fed by a river flowing 0.25 miles (0.40 km) per day out of Lake Okeechobee, southwest into Florida Bay. The park is the most significant breeding ground for tropical wading birds in North America and contains the largest mangrove ecosystem in the Western Hemisphere. Thirty-six threatened or protected species inhabit the park, including the Florida panther, the American crocodile, and the West Indian manatee, along with 350 species of birds, 300 species of fresh and saltwater fish, 40 species of mammals, and 50 species of reptiles. The majority of South Florida's fresh water, which is stored in the Biscayne Aquifer, is recharged in the park. Humans have lived for thousands of years in or around the Everglades. Plans arose in 1882 to drain the wetlands and develop the land for agricultural and residential use. As the 20th century progressed, water flow from Lake Okeechobee was increasingly controlled and diverted to enable explosive growth of the South Florida metropolitan area. The park was established in 1934, to protect the quickly vanishing Everglades, and dedicated in 1947, as major canal-building projects were initiated across South Florida. The ecosystems in Everglades National Park have suffered significantly from human activity, and restoration of the Everglades is a politically charged issue in South Florida.

Brickell City Centre is a large mixed-use complex consisting of two residential high-rise towers, two office buildings, a high-rise hotel, and an interconnected five-story shopping mall and lifestyle center covering 9 acres (36,000 m2) located in the Brickell district of Downtown Miami, Florida.[1] Situated at the junction of Miami Avenue and Eighth Street, it spans up to five blocks to the west of Brickell Avenue and to the south of the Miami River. Contrary to the name, the development is not in the traditional downtown Miami city centre, but in the more recently redeveloped financial district of Brickell. The retail shopping and lifestyle center is operated by Simon Malls. Brickell City Centre, which cost an estimated $1.05 billion, was completed in 2016. It was first proposed during the real estate bubble of the 2000s, but then cancelled during the economic downturn following the Great Recession. It was revived in 2012 with enough acreage to qualify for Special Area Plan (SAP) zoning with construction beginning by year's end. The hotel and residential towers, as well as some office space, opened in 2016. Phased retail openings started in November 2016.

Brickell was settled in the modern era in the mid-19th century by early pioneers, growing to become Miami's "Millionaire's Row" in the early 20th century after the construction of lavish mansions along Brickell Avenue by Mary Brickell; both the avenue and neighborhood were named for Mary and her husband, William Brickell.[3] By the 1970s, office towers, hotels and apartments began replacing the historic mansions. Brickell overtook the city's central business district to the north, as one of the largest financial districts in the United States. With a fast-growing residential population, Brickell is Miami's most dense neighborhood, with a 2010 population of about 31,000

E11EVEN Miami is a multilevel nightclub located in downtown Miami. The night club was opened February 5, 2014.
The year was 1935. The Great Depression was tailing off, Miami hosted the inaugural Orange Bowl, and Little Havana’s Ball & Chain opened its doors. For the next two decades, the club became among the Magic City’s most popular venues, a place where legends Billie Holiday and Chet Baker crooned the night away and jam sessions ran until 5 a.m. But there’s another side to the golden-era club — one populated with gangsters and highlighted by great feuds. Most colorful among the bar’s many owners were Henry Schechtman and Ray Miller, who bought the bar in the early ’50s. A businessman and “well-known burglar” — as noted by the Crime Commission of Greater Miami in a 1957 Miami News piece — Schechtman was also owner of the nearby Tower Hotel. The not-so-smooth criminal was arrested twice in two months, once for breaking and entering into a Lincoln Road bar and a second time for attempting to pry open the trunk of a jeweler’s car. Miller, Schechtman’s business partner, was a Teamsters Local 320 union organizer who, according to the Crime Commission, “attempted to organize doormen and car parkers in Miami Beach” and was tied to several acts of vandalism, including slashing 70 car tires. Back at the bar, Schechtman and crew were rumored to be selling stolen liquor and bootleg cigarettes. “Schechtman had a jail record and was involved in a lot of things,” says Paul George, a historian with HistoryMiami. “The name Ball & Chain really evokes the image of a prisoner, which is very coincidental, because the name was there before the guys bought it.” Schechtman and Miller’s shady ways finally caught up with them in 1957, when legendary band leader Count Basie sued the pair for $5,000 after not getting paid the $13,000 he was promised to play the Ball & Chain. “[The club] went broke after Basie pulled in only $5,100 in gross business,” Miller told the Miami Newsback in 1957. Of course, the club was also known for some more-positive history. “The Ball & Chain had black entertainers post-World War II, which was amazing,” George says. “Even though the community was predominantly Jewish, it was still a Deep South city. It was an unusual place.” Schechtman, being a street-savvy wise guy, would sneak in regulars like Billie Holiday and Count Basie through a hidden door in his nearby Tower Hotel and allow them to stay at his property. Louis Armstrong and Nat King Cole were said to have performed there as well, but George says there’s no documentation of their shows.

Back at the bar, Schechtman and crew were rumored to be selling stolen liquor and bootleg cigarettes. “Schechtman had a jail record and was involved in a lot of things,” says Paul George, a historian with HistoryMiami. “The name Ball & Chain really evokes the image of a prisoner, which is very coincidental, because the name was there before the guys bought it.” Schechtman and Miller’s shady ways finally caught up with them in 1957, when legendary band leader Count Basie sued the pair for $5,000 after not getting paid the $13,000 he was promised to play the Ball & Chain. “[The club] went broke after Basie pulled in only $5,100 in gross business,” Miller told the Miami Newsback in 1957. Of course, the club was also known for some more-positive history. “The Ball & Chain had black entertainers post-World War II, which was amazing,” George says. “Even though the community was predominantly Jewish, it was still a Deep South city. It was an unusual place.” Schechtman, being a street-savvy wise guy, would sneak in regulars like Billie Holiday and Count Basie through a hidden door in his nearby Tower Hotel and allow them to stay at his property. Louis Armstrong and Nat King Cole were said to have performed there as well, but George says there’s no documentation of their shows.
