The Virgin Islands Port Authority said its new $10 million ferry terminal will be open for business in about two weeks.  Building tenants, including a liquor store and a bar, are in the process of moving in ahead of the Sept. 25th date, according to a report in the Virgin Islands Daily News.  A spokesman for the Authority said he thinks it will be a "pleasant area" for people, once the food and drink facilites are operating.  He said both ferry companies servicing St. John are expected to have ticket counters.

  1. I guess it will be better. But I still will miss the old dusty parking lot, and having to go across the street to get your first Carib for the ferry ride….
    Then again, I still get misty-eyed when I remember the hot old open-air airport terminal (Harry S. Truman??) with those wooden partitions. Ah, progress!
