Dr. Jim Meffen...My family lived on Sunset Drive and 97th Avenue, when it was farm land...now a McDonalds and multiple housing developments...we then lived at the corner of Miller Road and the Palmetto Hwy....then SW 82nd Ave. just off Miller Rd. next to a riding stable..they were the best of days...My 8 kids loved it...before the vast hoards of Yankee retirees..So long ago that Don Shula was Dolphins coach and they were undefeated...We water skiied at the Miami Airport lakes..Great days!!
Lourdes Mendez- Aldo yes it was called TROICAL SKATING RINK - there use to be a mini disco inside as well. Oh my god I remember the days. I remember Midway skating off of Flagler and 72nd near Midway mall...
I think this was also a skating rink at one point. The Flea market was strange. I remember some hippie used to sell incense and the place stunk like a Berkeley dormroom.
i beleive this structure is still mostly there and is where navarro pharmacy and several other stores reside. i remember as a kid this place catching fire but not being torn down. i think they gutted it and turned it into a strip mall sometime in the early 80's.
