The 1920's real estate boom was killed by a combined attack from Wall Street investment firms and New York media giants who didn't want investor money traveling south to Florida. Just like the media gang-bang today lead by the Wall Street Journal, Barron's and Business Week citing fabricated "studies" done by economists at Merrill Lynch and Morgan Stanley, et al, on the South Florida real estate bubble! They just keep scareing away home buyers so they can make sure investors put their money in stocks! Any journalist who spends 30 seconds of research on the 1920's Florida real estate boom knows it was killed by the New York media.

See that's what is wrong with you "Google experts". You spend 30 seconds to be educated. We local historians know that many factors led to South Florida being vulnerable and the hurricane being the final straw. That is why we became a depressed area 3 years prior to the Wall Street crash.

3 year prior! So try studying 20 years before you make stupid comments.
