Fort Lauderdale. Fort Lauderdale is known as the "Venice of America." It has a 165 mile network of navigable waterways. Situated on south Florida's booming coast, it is a popular beach resort and also caters to those interested in boating and yachting. Back in the 1800's Major William Lauderdale was stationed here (and thus the origin of the Fort Lauderdale name). Originally the area survived on its agriculture and orange groves. By the end of the 1950's Fort Lauderdale began to be known as a seaside resort. With its delightful sub-tropical weather, the city has a sophisticated and unobtrusive feel to it. The Greater Fort Lauderdale community extends from the Atlantic Ocean in the east to the edge of Everglades National Park, some 25 miles to the west.

Residents. The number of year-round residents at CRTE is substantial. Like most Florida communities, the number of part time residents increases during Florida's high season (November - April) and decreases during low season. Our homeowners consist of persons 55 years and older who are retired and semi-retired, as well as those who continue to work full time. We enjoy the many amenities at our co-operative, as well as our delightful weather. Most of us originally come from "up North."

Counties. CRTE is in the City of Fort Lauderdale, and like many oceanview buildings, on one of Florida's barrier islands. We are in Broward County which connects with Palm Beach County (West Palm Beach, Palm Beach) to the north and with Miami-Dade County (Miami) to the south. South of Miami-Dade County is Monroe County (Key West). To our west across the Florida peninsula lies Collier County (Naples) and to the north of Collier lies Lee County (Fort Myers). The famous Alligator Alley toll road connects Florida's east and west coasts. Alligator Alley is slightly under 100 miles in length.
We are in South Florida, which refers to the combined counties of Broward, Miami-Dade and Monroe. South Florida has over 4,000,000 full time residents. Palm Beach to our north has an additional 1,000,000 residents. Our friends across Alligator Alley are in Southwest Florida, generally referring to the combined counties of Collier and Lee and several counties to the north of Lee.
The Galt Mile. CRTE as well as a great many other condos and co-operatives along the Galt ocean mile, is a member of the Galt Mile Community Association. The GMCA maintains an extensive web site and blog with information that may be of interest to CRTE residents.
