“Seeing South Florida through George Neary’s eyes is a must when in town. Just make sure to wear sunglasses at all times — for the sunshine and vibrant architecture by day, neon signs and moonlight by night, and the sparkle of George’s always colorful and glittery signature hats, 24/7!”

Watch out for his hat or jacket, the glitter may blind you!

“Windisch-Hunt Fine Art grew out of [George’s] encouragement. He attended the first opening, he brought to The Grove events that got international attention and artists. From that time on, we referred to him as our ‘Ambassador Plenipotentiary The Honorable George Neary.’ He typified that title to the nth degree.”
