Stiltsville is located in the middle of Miami, Florida's Biscayne Bay and is made up of 7 remaining houses, built by some of Miami's first residents. They are some of the last of their kind in the world due to increasingly impactful natural disasters and stricter building codes.
All of the houses are now owned by the state of Florida, and their owners are now their caretakers. If a home becomes too damaged, it is torn down, leaving open ocean in its place.
Being out on Biscayne Bay, in a rickety wooden house suspended on telephone poles and surrounded completely by water, where you can literally see the ocean through cracks in the floor, is like being the last person in the world. Inundated by the creatures of South Florida's untouched aquatic wilderness time seems to stay still, and each day of fishing, swimming, and barbecuing above the rolling aqua waves follows the next.
Is Stiltsville the a relic of the near past or humanity's future?
