Diamonds are a town's best friend

I would be willing to bet that the building still exists as Charlotte Amalie preserves it's its colonial-style buildings and this style is everywhere there.

Now, it probably houses an air-conditioned store selling duty-free diamonds and watches to the cruise ship crowd. So, in a way, it's still serving the same purpose: A store. (Oh and those shutters would now be bright blue like the picture here:)

Webmaster: Thanks for correcting my "its" I know how bad grammar irks you and I'm ashamed to say I know better. :^)
