So how is it that you know what's to the right and left of downtown, and also the foreground? The photo only shows what it shows. What's with these forumers that make a judgement based solely on a photo or a few photos?

Sounds like an ad for The Woodlands. But yes, it is a beautiful community if one doesn't mind living way out in the suburbs.

While not a complete answer, you can check out the progression of the city via historical aerials:

http://www.historicaerials.com/?poi=9697

The earliest photo is from 1956 - looks like a few highways are just starting construction, and this was before the real estate boom of the 1960s, so it gives a decent glimpse as to what the urban form presumably looked like in the period from the 1920s-1960s, and after that you can advance decade-by-decade to the present for your answer.

South Beach, Government Cut (connects the Atlantic with Biscayne Bay & the Port of Miami, Fisher Island at top:



South Beach:





Mid Miami Beach :



Coral Gables ( suburb 5 miles west of downtown) & Little Havana in the foreground:



Miami's Coconut Grove neighborhood :



Skyline of Sunny Isles Beach, North bay village in the foreground:





Downtown Miami:
