This aerial view shows Bal Harbor, Bal Harbor beach, and Biscayne Bay. At frame left, just above the small island, is where Florida International University’s Biscayne Bay Campus would be located. In this image some of the early construction for the campus is visible. Surrounding the area is Florida’s Oleta River State Park, an urban park that is built around the mouth of the Oleta River.
