Key West, Florida used car lot? This old truck adorned with stickers from around the world is outside a restaurant in Key West. It is symbolic of the Conch Republic's laid back, anything goes attitude.
An old house on the outskirts of Ybor City in Tampa, Florida. How or why this building is still standing is a tough question to answer. Someone thinks it is important. A sign on the front porch announces that security cameras are in use.
Old meets new inSan Juan, Puerto Rico. At one time San Juan was a walled city. Entry was gained through giant doors along San Juan Bay. Today much of the wall is gone, but many of the old buildings remain. Beyond these reminders of the past skyscrapers define the new San Juan. Front and center is La Fortaleza, built in 1533 to protect the city from attack. It was occupied twice, once by the British in 1598 and again by the Dutch in 1625. Once El Morro and the city’s other fortifications became adequate to protect the city the fortress became the governor’s palace. The building today has little resemblance to the original small fort it once was.
