MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) - South Beach’s famed Art Deco District is celebrating 35 years on the historic registry this month.

The Miami Beach Architectural Historic District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in May 1979.

Miami tourism officials say it was the nation’s first 20th century historic district.

The unmistakable pastel beachside buildings and neon signs have been featured prominently over the years in TV shows like “Miami Vice” and movies like “Scarface” and “The Bird Cage.”
