Hot Boxes: Highlighting the most creative mailboxes in Miami
Driving the news: Novelty mailboxes appear to be a way of life here. (Letter-ally, bro.) Concrete manatees and Fiberglas mermaids adorn lawns up and down the coast.
- Welcome to Hot Boxes, our new semi-regular feature highlighting the most creative mailboxes in Miami and beyond.
What's next: Hopefully this motivates you to get out and snap pictures of your neighbors' creative displays. Reader submissions are greatly encouraged!
The big picture: In today's isolated society, lawn displays may be one of the best ways to express your personality. Maybe you'll make a new neighbor friend out of it, too.
Here are some of my recent finds to kick off this series:
🐴 Pony express: This sweet stallion — on my old street, Crespi Boulevard in North Beach — was the first hot box to catch my eye back in 2021.
🐬 Nauty by nature: A classic nautical mailbox that every Floridian has probably seen. Pictured in Hollywood. Fins up!
📸 Photo-shoot fresh: This is the most unique mailbox I've seen so far. This Hollywood sculpture puts the meta in metallic. (Who's taking whose picture??)
📫 We want to hear from you: Have you noticed any hot boxes in your neighborhood?
- Send us a pic and we will feature your favorites in our next installment!
