I attended recent affordable housing workshops and felt there were many people who were not getting listened to. The meetings scaled over concerns that the group being protected (those who can afford to pay $2400/month in rent) were the wrong group to protect.
For this reason, I wanted to hear the opinions of people in the streets of City of Key West.
I set out Sunday, February 28th on bicycle, into Key West and approached anyone I came across to ask if they had an opinion on Peary Court. First I went to Sandy’s Cafe, and got a few interviews, then I headed down into Bahama Village and got one more on Petronia Street, then Duval Street, there were so many tourists who knew nothing about the issue. My last area was at Harpoon Harry’s and then Lands End Marina.
Here are 6 interviews and the question asked was: Should the City of Key West purchase Peary Court. (See video above.)
