South Florida is known for its beaches, nightclubs, and party atmosphere, but underneath is a history of corruption, drugs, and violence. For those structures that have withstood the harsh perils of time, they have been destroyed by man’s ever-growing quest for money. In Abandoned South Florida, David Bulit will take you through a series of locations that locals tend to have forgotten about or would rather not discuss. You’ll venture through a church part of the cult the Nation of Yahweh; a prison which was the site of one of the largest prison escapes in Florida’s history; a once popular hotel turned squatter’s paradise; a shopping mall which became a haven for the homeless and bats alike; the last tuberculosis hospital in the state of Florida; and many more places that have been consumed by the jaws of development.
