Over a period of eight hours on June 20, more than 700,000 gallons of raw sewage — poop and wastewater — spilled from a 63-inch pipe on NW 155 Lane, just south of State Road 826 near the Golden Glades.   

How Miami Wants To Revitalize Downtown

Imagine sipping an iced cappuccino on Flagler Street beneath a lush shade tree, next to the very road that really kicked off Miami. Or meandering through a long, lazy park inserted in the middle of Biscayne Boulevard, just north of the InterContinental Miami Hotel and Resort.

Not possible, you say?

Quite possible, says Javier Betancourt, the Deputy Directory of the Miami Downtown Development Authority.

CCEMiami (Centro Cultural Español en Miami), the Spanish cultural arm here, often falls of the radar when it comes to the arts. Since moving into the bustling downtown area on Biscayne Boulevard (from its sometimes forbidding building in the Gables), it may be that some people simply don’t know they are there. Time to rediscover.

The center offers up some impressive and diverse cultural events, including music and theater – the latter includes their innovative Microtheater, “small” plays of about 15 minutes, set up in the back courtyard for only about 15 spectators.
