Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

All month long, Cultist's Miami Icons series has spotlighted Miami's most deserving landmarks. There are the obvious choices, like Ocean Drive's Colony Hotel. There are the historical gems, like Vizcaya. There were modern additions, like the Arsht Center. We even threw in a couple weirdo picks -- El Faraon, for example -- just to keep things interesting.

Now, it's time for you to choose. Which Miami Icon deserves to represent the Magic City to the rest of the world?

Take our poll and make your voice heard. Should it be the opulence of the Versace mansion? The picturesque MacArthur Causeway? The fantastical Opa-locka City Hall?

If you're still not sure, read back through the Miami Icons series to narrow down your pick:

The Colony Hotel, Ocean Drive's Most Famous Art Deco Building

The Freedom Tower Welcomed Cubans to America

The Miami Tower, Colorful Chameleon of the Skyline

Vizcaya, Birthplace of Magic City Luxury

Stiltsville, Offshore Escape For Miami's Most Colorful Characters

American Airlines Arena, Home of the White Hot Heat

The Bacardi Complex (AKA YoungArts), Striking Beauty of Biscayne

The Biltmore, a Glitzy, Golden-Age Throwback

The Adrienne Arsht Center, Where Glossy Style Meets Cultural Substance

The Welcome To Miami Beach Sign, a Nostalgic Causeway Beacon

The Versace Mansion, a High-End Hotel Inspiring Macabre Fascination

The MacArthur Causeway Bridge Pairs Striking Skyline Views and Strange History

El Faraon, Where Fidel Castro Once Visited (Maybe)

Espirito Santo Plaza, Brickell's Algebraic Skyscraper

Opa-locka City Hall, an Arabesque Dream in the Face of Urban Decay

You have until Friday to decide. We'll announce the winning Miami Icon on Monday. Choose wisely!
