Tony Goldman to Be Remembered In South Beach Funeral Service Today
Tony Goldman, the Miami restaurateur, entrepreneur, and real estate visionary who passed away Tuesday, will be remembered at Temple Emanu-El of Greater Miami in a funeral service today at noon.
Goldman's work in real estate forever changed the course of Miami's development. He saw Wynwood's potential to become a thriving arts community and encouraged artists to create works and galleries there, working with local government to make the district more visitor-friendly. Goldman also helped transform South Beach from a sleepy retirement community into an Art Deco hotspot.
A notice of this afternoon's service reads, "He was a transformational, once in a lifetime figure, who will be remembered as what a man at his best can become."
The service begins at noon and attendees are asked to arrive promptly. Temple Emanu-El of Greater Miami, The South Beach Synagogue, is located at 1701 Washington Ave., Miami Beach. Call 305-538-2503.
