These two pictures are east and west shots of Pitt street, arguably the economic center of New Amsterdam. Pitt street is dense and narrow, lined with shoulder-to-shoulder general goods stores and clothing/fabric shops. In the first shot you can see the entrance to Roots Bar, a great local CD store where I bought music a lot. The motorcycle outside belongs to the owner, the very fellow Peace Corps thought was a danger to me. The other shot is from farther down, about halfway near Melody's restaurant, facing the Town Hall. My friend Camille's mother had a small roadside shop right in this area. The blue tarps were clothing stands owned by some local guys who might have been Rastas... I never was sure.
