LINCOLN ROAD REINVENTED – YET AGAIN! TOUR
Carl Fisher's "5th Avenue of the South" label put Lincoln Road on the national map in the 1920s and 30s. Lincoln Road became Lincoln Road Mall in the late 1950s with famed architect (Foutainbleau and Eden Roc Hotels) Morris Lapidus' total makeover, turning the "road" into a pedestrian walkway. Lincoln Road Mall is being reinvented in the 21st century -- yet again! – with internationally acclaimed architectural additions to the existing Art Deco and Mid-Century buildings & structures. This tour shows you 'up front and persona' what's been going on!
