Description

Fisher Island ,an exclusive development, is located adjacent to Government Cut, just south of Miami Beach. (Image LK070156-0239_a.psb) This gigapan was photographed from a vantage point on Virginia Key. The buildings in the foreground are 1/2 mile from the camera location and the high-rise buildings are at a distance of 1.36 miles. This scene was photographed with a Nikon D800 camera and Nikon 28-300mm lens.

Fisher Island is a neighborhood of metropolitan Miami, Florida, located on a barrier island of the same name. As of the 2010 census, Fisher Island had the highest per capita income of any place in the United States in 2010.
Named for automotive parts pioneer and beach real estate developer Carl G. Fisher, who once owned it, Fisher Island is 3 miles off shore of mainland South Florida. No road or causeway connects to the island, which is accessible by private boat or ferry. Once a one-family island home of the Vanderbilts, and later several other millionaires, it was sold for development in 1960s. The property sat vacant for well over 15 years before development was begun for very limited and restrictive multi-family use.
