Bay Harbor Islands Movers
Miami-Dade Moving Company
Bay Harbor Islands is a small town consisting of two islands located in the Biscayne Bay of Miami, Florida.
Situated between the cities of Aventura and Miami Beach, the Bay Harbor Islands have a tiny population of only 5,000 residents, and is composed of less than half a mile of land.
The Bay Harbor Islands are surrounded entirely by water. The city's sole connection to the mainland is through the Broad Causeway, which crosses Biscayne Bay.
The Bay Harbor Islands are neighbored to the south by the exclusive Indian Creek Island and the towns of Bal Harbor and Surfside to the East.
About Bay Harbor Islands
The two tiny isles that would one day become the Bay Harbor Islands were little more then mud and mangrove before the 253 acre plot of land became Shepard Broad's obsession in 1947. Shepard Broad - one of 22 Jewish men who helped drive the Israel War of Independence to create a homeland for the world's Jewish people - traded his ownership of 2 1/2 floors of the Biscayne Building for the swampland, then valued at $600,000.
Broad developed the western island as a private, single-family home community, and the eastern island as a real-estate hub for condominiums and rental apartments. Shepard Broad served as the small city's mayor for 26 consecutive one-year terms, at a salary of one dollar per year. Shepard Broad also financed the construction of "Shepard's Folly," the $2.5 million dollar bridge that would later be known as the Broad Causeway.
