The destruction of a historic Florida hotel that hosted Kennedy and the Beatles in the 1960s

A hotel in Miami Beach, Florida, USA, was vandalized on Sunday after being neglected for the past few years.

Once the most luxurious hotel in Miami Beach, the hotel was home to the Beatles and President John F. Kennedy in the 1960s.

The 17-story Hotel Deauville collapsed after triggering a series of pre-planned explosions that sent out a large cloud of dust.

The hotel was built in 1957 and Kennedy addressed the Young Democrats convention there in 1961.

The Beatles performed there in 1964 and recorded six songs for “Ed Sullivan,” which drew an estimated television audience of 70 million people.

Celebrities like Frank Sinatra, Tom Jones and Sammy Davis Jr. have performed there.

The property fell into disrepair over the years and was closed in 2017 after a fire due to a short circuit.

Miami Beach officials and hotel owners have paid millions of dollars in fines for breaking the law.

Billionaire Stephen Ross, owner of the Miami Dolphins, wanted to buy the property and build a hotel and a 107-meter-high residential tower, but his plan didn’t work out.

City officials say Ross may still be interested in buying the land if a Plan B can be developed.
