Keep those photos rolling in! I love how the design is the same as 1984. The older colour scheme has a very art deco feel to it.

I sure am! I am considering stay at this place for a night when finally making it to Miami, however when I last checked the reviews some were quite dreadful. I wonder if anybody from this Forum has stayed there before?

CGlide checked it out a few years ago but don't know if he stayed there or not.

No the last two times I stayed at the Mayfair. Nice, clean, and very MV friendly.

Some photos from 2013 and 2014 to a Miami trip featuring some of the locations seen in the iconic "In the Air Tonite" montage on NW42nd Avenue:D

 C+T headed southbound on NW 42nd Avenue, Miami-  Ocean Bank at the intersection of NW 7th  Street. (seen in background)

At the end of the episode, C&T are racing to Watson Island to stop Calderone's plane (Jan Hammer's "Chase" in the background).  There are several unidentified cuts which are pretty much impossible to find, but I think Cut #4 could conceivably be found.    This is around 1:33:34, right after Tubbs is yelling into the phone for backup "No, it's Four Four!"

This should be somewhere on Biscayne Blvd between 22nd St and 14th St.  Either these arches still exist today or maybe somebody will recognize them from another MV scene.  "Down For the Count" and "Phil the Shill" were filmed in this area.

 

There are some archways on a building ( mid right of picture from yesterday )on Biscayne at 2385 - and I believe that building was there in 1984.

I would lean towards no because the arches in your photo are wider than the ones in the MV scene, but I can't say for certain.  It's a possibility.  It's in the right area and that building was there in the 1980s.

They drive right by your building in Phil the Shill when they are tailing the black Mercedes.  They're going south on Biscayne and turn left onto 24th.  We get to see that building, but really well.

Yes I thought they looked wider - but maybe check the "Phil the Shill" episode and it's easy for me to get more shots ! I notice in the still from "Brother's Keeper" that it's quite a zoom on the background so that's  maybe a factor! 

I just stumbled upon the building as yes I remember it from Phil the Shill but in "Florence Italy" towards the end they ran over this intersection as well as the building at 2650.

Looking at the Florence Italy scene and looking at CGlide's page for that ep, it appears when they go by that building the camera is looking the other way (westward).

These arches are less wide on the front of the building of the same building at NE24th and Biscayne
