This is how boom and bust residential development has drastically affected parts of southwest Florida. Many homes are empty and have been empty for many years.

Once proposed as the 57,000 acre "Golden Gate Estates", this area was to be the largest subdivision in America in the 1960s. Many canals and roads were built, but the development eventually went bankrupt. Over the past 20 years or so, the land has been acquired by the state, and converted into the Picayune Strand State

The Dade-Collier Training and Transition Airport was originally planned as the Everglades Jetport, and construction started in 1968 on what was to be the world's largest airport with six runways to support supersonic transport. Being surrounded by the Big Cypress National Preserve, environmental concerns halted construction, and when commercial supersonic transport didn't arrive, the project was left as-is, now a lightly-used airport.

Alot of those communities (water communities) have only one way out of the whole
complex. Traffic must be hell at times. Especially hurricane season, you're basically trapped.
