I think we are very much like Stars Hollow
It caught my eye also because I sort of fashioned the Grapevine as Coconut Grove's version of Stars Hollow. At the beginning, I wrote about the same people and a few people got what I was doing, I was posting a narrative of daily life in Coconut Grove, with repeat characters as if it was a tv show and Coconut Grove was Stars Hollow. People approached me and told me they understood what I was doing, I loved that. But in the end, the Grapevine ended up posting daily news and the character driven aspect sort of got lost.
Of course Washington, CT is more historic than Coconut Grove by the fact that they still have their history standing, where we are historic, but don't have much to show for it. Washington CT has colonial buildings and antique shops and all that New England stuff you picture in your head, including a red barn that houses a cinema.
But from what I could see from Google Maps, including pictures, it is not as pretty as Coconut Grove and it's more spread out and not as walkable as we are. I think we are more Stars Hollow than Washington, CT is, even though they were the inspiration.
