From The Real Deal‘s March issue: The way to a buyer’s heart is through his stomach. At least, that’s what one Miami-area developer is hoping.

For one Saturday night last month, the tony enclave of Williams Island was transformed into New York City. More than 320 people headed to the private island, at the northern tip of Miami-Dade County, for its “Streets of New York Night” event, where they snacked on New York-influenced foods, from hot pretzels and Korean noodles to the delicacies of a mini-Little Italy. Attendees danced off their calories to Studio 54-style music. One guest even arrived decked out as the Statue of Liberty. [more]
