Miami Beach developer Carl G. Fisher bought Fisher Island which is a property 3 miles off shore of Miami, Florida. Fisher Island is only accessible by private ferry and helicopter. Historically, it was winter home of the Vanderbilts, and later several other prominent families acquired it, and the modern Fisher Island was developed in the 1960s.
Today, Fisher Island is considered one of the most exclusive enclaves of South Florida and is a playground for the elite.
