Alfred I. duPont Building. One of the first skyscrapers in Miami and one of the best places to throw a party, the Alfred I. duPont Building was constructed on the site of the demolished Hotel Halcyon from 1937 to 1939. This October 28, paranormal investigator Marlene Pellicer will lead a tour of the duPont, hosted by Exile Books in partnership with Lemon Yellow and the Downtown Development Authority. The tour will be accompanied by the release of a zine made with heat-sensitive paper designed for documentation of supernatural encounters.
