General Impression

Main Street or Dronningens Gade (Danish name meaning Queen’s Street) is the main street running through Charlotte Amalie. The buildings on the south side of Main Street are long, separated by narrow alleys. These were warehouses for storing goods during the heyday of trade. On the north side are a collection of 18th and 19th century classic West Indian buildings and former town houses. The buildings are square in shape and many are two stories with balconies. In the past the first floor housed shops; the second floor would have been the shop keeper’s residence. Today many of these old buildings are repurposed as duty free shops.
