Charlotte Amalie Harbor

VInow.com
Charlotte Amalie

St. Thomas' beautiful natural harbor welcomed the first settlers to the island and today it welcomes millions of visitors. Piers once dotted the waterfront area providing landing and loading space for trading ships. With time came change; donkey and horse drawn carts were replaced by automobiles. The waterfront area was filled in and a four-lane highway was built. The old warehouses with their piers jutting out into the harbor were landlocked. Today a stroll along the waterfront apron allows you to enjoy a terrific view of Charlotte Amalie; sailboats dotting the water, large cruise ships at the dock and seaplanes coming and going. Look around; imagine what the harbor and town might have looked liked 100 years ago, 200 years ago, longer!
