Miami keeps shutting down Biscayne Boulevard's most notorious motel. Now it looks as though taxpayers will be footing the bill.

"Our case against the Stardust is different than Bowen," Broeker argues. "The Stardust had a history of being closed. We gave them a chance to fix things and they didn't. Bowen was closed outright. We can win this." Broeker and Fernandez also think they can win for NABs the tools they need to operate again. "A property owner is jointly responsible for the activity on his property," says Broeker. "That is the principle abatement boards have used to clean up neighborhoods."

On Biscayne Boulevard a veteran prostitute named Maggie says she has heard about problems at the Stardust. Her geographical position is on the side of the street, but her political position is strictly middle of the road. "The Stardust is an all-right place," she says. "The rooms are clean. But it's a good thing they are going after the drugs, sugar. Those crack people, you never know what they're going to do.
