It's all about the people
In Coconut Grove, you can literally walk down the street and be stopped by a dozen people to chat. You can walk into a restaurant and know almost everyone at every table. Even at City Hall meetings or Village Council meetings, it seems that everyone knows everyone else.
You can walk into Scotty's and know half the place, there are many tourists there, too, but it has the Grove feel, whatever that is. This new Harbour place is going to feel like The Falls or Bayside, now maybe not, but I do see it as a tourist destination and not for locals. Again, I could be wrong.
I think that is what I fear. Losing that.
