New at Red Hook

The Urman Victor Fredericks Marine Terminal – it’s finally open.

A year late and $700,000 more expensive than planned, ’cause they kinda forgot about the fact the building needed electricity, so they had to have a change order to get a transformer or generator or something.

Anyway, besides the pretty new building, with shade from the sun and a new parking lot, what else is there?

Shopping!  Inside you’ll find ticket counters for ferry companies servicing St. John and the BVIs, a shop selling locally-made gift items, information booths (resorts, condos, for example), restrooms, phones (wanna bet how long they work?), a music store and – "Hey, it’s the islands, mon," – a bar.
