An Eerie Feeling: The Buzz of Miami Beach is All Gone

Updated: May 1



What does it feel like to be in one of the most iconic cities in the world during Covid19?  


Welcome to Miami Beach under quarantine: once busy streets flocking with lively tourists alongside congested traffic jams are no longer to be seen or heard. Instead, an eerie feeling of being watched amidst copious crow and parrot sounds becomes a prevalent experience as you walk through the bizarrely empty streets of Miami Beach. We will remember these days as an unprecedented historical moment -- for some, precious time to rediscover and self-reflect; for others an annoyance, despair and biting desire to have life go back to normal.


In this picture essay, Miami Living captures Miami Beach during Covid19.
