Here is a real estate commercial for the Palm Island house:

 

 

They falsely claim that the Star Island "Little Prince" house was used in Scarface.  Of course, the Scarface house was actually in California.

I've been studying "Smuggler's Blues" this week and I noticed something in the aerial footage when they are returning to Miami.  There is a long camera shot panning along MacArthur Causeway and Palm Island, and it includes a brief look of the Home Invaders house:

If the interior was filmed here it is heavily remodeled now including significant structural differences. The stairs from the main room are completely different in shape and direction. The doors to the back pool area have been reduced in size which is strange.

The doors have bigger frames and less glass, but they're the same size.  The semi-circular windows above the doors have been replaced with a different pattern.

Found this old postcard of the motel at 6500 Biscayne Blvd. they pass when following the bad guys.  Apparently it was the New Yorker Motel before it became the Sunny Day Motel.  I think it was once the Davis Motel but is back to the original name.  Interesting old 40s/50s style building.

Interesting it's gone back to the New Yorker this area of Biscayne Blvd was is quite run down - quite a few empty buildings

Was wondering how well we see 94 Palm from the Macarthur Cswy?:D

When we were looking for the jewelry store, we forgot to look in the most obvious place.  Perhaps we needed a "tour guide".  :) 

It is located in South Miami one block from JJ's (where they had the farewell lunch for Malone)!  I was visiting JJ's (now Irish Times) and noticed the arches across the street.  The bartender was a nice guy and seemed to take a genuine interest in this.

I did not pinpoint the exact store.  There were three possibilities.  I tried lining up the columns but I was too nervous and didn't even note which exact stores I was in.  I think CGlide will be able to pinpoint the exact store.  My best guess is 5818 Sunset Drive a.k.a. SW 72nd Street, otherwise it is 5822 or 5830.

Above video is the raw footage. Sorry I have not cleaned it up but thought it was interesting all the same. Lots of "work" ahead as I took over 1500 photos just for Vice.
