Spring has sprung. Help wanted signs and open doors are all along 96th street as our merchants begin preparing for another wonderful season. It’s always such an exciting time of the year as we see the businesses begin to prep for the season because we know we are just a few weeks away from families pouring onto the island for fun and sun.

If you are looking to come down and look at some homes, perhaps schedule it around one of the upcoming events.
