The old Miami Vice television show is having its 30 year anniversary this year and Foursquare, an app with which you “check-in” at locations, is highlighting 10 popular spots from the shows that are still around.
Miami Vice was a popular show that helped get Miami on the radar, and it actually brought many visitors to the area. That was 30 years ago, here are the places in Miami today.
- East Side Pizza (731 NE 79th Street): The burger joint where the two characters, Stan Switek and Larry Zito meet Noogie in the show.
- Bayside Marketplace (401 Biscayne Blvd): The marketplace shown many times in the series.
- Vizcaya Museum and Gardens (3251 S Miami Ave): The villa at this location was shown many times through the series, especially in the episodes, “Whatever Works,” “Tale of the Goat,” “French Twist,” “God's Work,” “The Rising Sun of Death,” and “Heart of the Night.”
- Jerry's Famous Deli (1450 Collins Ave): In Miami Vice, this location was actually the Kobekai Club and the Warsaw Ballroom. After the end of Miami Vice, it became a Jerry’s Famous Deli, a restaurant with many delicacies. Now, it is vacant and will be filled with another renter soon.
- Miami Tower (100 SE 2nd Street): The Miami Tower is actually shown in the opening credits for the series.
