For those of you lucky enough to be in Cruz Bay the last week or so, you may have noticed that a lot of work has been going on over at Wharfside Village.
Over the next several months, Wharfside is essentially going to get a head to toe makeover. Owner Joe DeCourcy is currently replacing all of the tiles in the walkway with new tiles, which is fantastic because those darn things are so slippery when it rains. He’s also replacing all of the windows and replacing the current siding with shiplap siding. Check out a few pics:
Because of the work being done, there is less available parking in town. Slim’s is closed for the month of October, and the new lot behind the old First Bank is closed for the season, so parking is at a premium.

Why would a parking lot close for the season? Talk about making it more inconvenient on island….
It’s a staging area for all the construction so ALL the construction isn’t entirely inconvenient from everyone.
The owner is probably banging his head against the wall for his tile choice just a few years ago.
The previous owner is the one who put that terrible tile in. After many injuries, he replaced the center walking path with a less slippery tile, but left the super dangerous (indoor) tile along the edges and in places where the tile was mostly covered. It was a total nightmare. The complex was neglected for years, and it’s good that it’s getting an overhaul, but the timing could have been better.
So glad they are replacing the tile! A couple of years ago I fell because the tile was wet and slick.
took me 5 yrs of living on the island, but the 5th year I broke down and bought a scooter instead of a car. Best decision ever. Never had to worry about parking again:) pull right up to any place I had to go into.
So is it a total mess to get around? We will be there in two weeks.
Looking at coming back to St.John after the first of the year.Has the barge issues been worked out ?
The barge situation is much improved. Shouldn’t have much trouble as long as there are no big surprise issues that pop up.
