WICO to shift night traffic to Crown Bay

The Daily News has an article today about the Crown Bay cruise ship dock.

"We will be shifting some of our night traffic into the Crown Bay port," Thomas said, speaking at a session of UVI's 11th annual Summer Institute for Future Global Leaders of the Caribbean. "The West Indian Co. will basically be a daytime operation." "

I think this whole project is in a bit of trouble - I have heard rumors that there are basically no tenants, and the rents are very high. If ships are not regularly scheduled how are the potential tenants going to survive? I want this project to work for the benfit of the island, but it seems to have a long way to go and a lot of hurdles in the way. Read the article here.

I think they should make it into the nigtly entertainment district such as: Bourbon Street in New Orleans or South Beach in Miami. Start by pulling all the liquor liscenses from all these make shift bars in the neighborhoods. Then tell them they can open up shop in Crown Bay. People can eat and drink, and they also can go from bar to bar....club to club. It would also help the police keeping everything "right there." I personally hate driving from one part of the island to another to go to a bar or club

That is a neat idea - it would be a good spot for some nightlife.
