When I pulled up to Second Home Guesthouse on a February evening this winter and went through the heavy gilded bronze doors, I immediately felt the impression that this property would make on me. The spotlights guiding you through the property at night gave a small hint of the Xanadu vibe that Second Home conveys.
There’s nothing like beautiful summer days in the woodsy dreamland they’ve created. The peonies are just starting to come out, paths leading to peaceful sitting clearings, views of hills of daffodils.
“In Italy, for 30 years under the Borgias, they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love, they had 500 years of democracy and peace — and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock.”

I’m hanging out with Jordan expert and Bed Stuy store, Jordan Heads Brooklyn owner, Calvan Fowler talking Jordans, Be Like Mike the stock market and sneakerhead culture. Am I finally going to get my first pair of retro Js? Watch below!

I did notice that all of my friends that called Miami home were incredible, so I knew there had to be more to Miami than just South Beach.

So on my last trip this February, I decided to “live like a local” under the guidance of some friends from the Arsht Center for the Performing Arts.
