I have a small obsession with alleyways. Like the back stage of a theater they somehow feel more real than the facade they support. Behind the most glamorous restaurant is a back door; here the maitreâ€™d can be himself, light up and share stories about the guests heâ€™s been smiling at for the last 4 hours. A police officer rounds the corner to take a private call. For him, too, this is a place where he is beyond scrutiny.
In Miami, especially, the contrast between the alleyway and the front-facing exterior is at itâ€™s most extreme.
Those of us who live here often use them as alternative routes to escape the crowds.
They are, for me, an unlikely oasis of reality in a city that embodies the word â€˜fakeâ€™.
