Us-Miami Beach-Art Deco-Buick

A 1941 Buick Eight coupe vintage automobile (L) which is used as a decorative prop in front of an Art Deco style hotel on Ocean Drive in South Miami Beach, Florida sits on the curb of the street 26 September 2006. The city of Miami Beach has a concentration of over 800 Art Deco buildings all within one square mile. The white-and pastel-colored stucco buildings originally built in the 1920's have in the past two decades been restored to their former splendor. Some of the characteristics of the Art Deco movement in Miami include over-all symmetry, ziggurat (stepped) rooflines, glass block, decorative sculptural panels, eyebrows, round porthole windows, terrazzo floors, curved edges and corners, elements in groups of three and neon lighting used in both exteriors as well as interior spaces. The chamber of commerce for the city reports that some 7 281 200 visitors came to South Beach in 2004.

The Golden Gate Bridge is pictured 20 December 2006 in San Francisco, California. The Golden Gate is a suspension bridge spanning the Golden Gate, the opening into San Francisco Bay from the Pacific Ocean. It connects the city of San Francisco on the northern tip of the San Francisco Peninsula to Marin County as part of US Highway 101 and California State Highway 1. The largest suspension bridge in the world when it was completed in 1937, it has become an internationally recognized symbol of San Francisco and America. It is currently the second longest suspension bridge in the United States after the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge in New York City. AFP PHOTO/GABRIEL BOUYS / AFP PHOTO / GABRIEL BOUYS
