I honestly don't recall seeing any signs for a long time there for any establishment. You have any pictures of the signs in question for the greenhouse?

When we were there in September I believe the sign said parking for patrons of the Buccaneer Beach Bar along with another sign that showed the lower level lot for BBB. I agree with you Carol, but maybe that's because I believe in following rules. If a sign says parking for XYZ business I won't park there unless I am going to do business with XYZ business. Why risk a nice day ruined by a taxi ride to the tow yard to pay $200 to get your car back? It's no different than someone parking in my driveway, without permission, to visit a friend 3 houses down. You can bet your bottom dollar that car would be towed off my property. To those that wish to risk it, don't cry when you come back from a different business and find your car gone, be it in SXM or USA.

Which "upper lot"?

There is a small lot directly across from Greenhouse and up a slight hill that had Greenhouse Only parking signs in it the last time I was there but that has been 18 months ago.

The lot on the same side as BBB and adjacent to them (slightly up the hill) had BBB Only signs the last time I was there, which was also 18 months ago.

While I will agree, parking can be rather random at many places on SXM, I have seen cars towed many times from different places that indicated the parking was for their patrons only.

Perhaps when the restaurants in question here lease the restaurant property, it also comes with a lease for a specific number or parking spaces also.

The BBB upper lot is theirs! BBB is three pieces of property. Two deeded and a water rights long lease!

Well, I dunno. The other night I found a space at the head-in spaces next to the drive down to BBB's lot. This was after a LOT of driving to find a space. At any rate, I did not see a sign, and I was not towed.

The past few weekends, cars were double parking and blocking cars in front of the small grocery store across the street from the Greenhouse, and cars were parked on the sidewalk in front of the Greenhouse and up to and including the entrance to the BBB.

There is also a large new building going up right beside it and it looks like a parking garage on the main floor so that may be a possibility. Lee's actually looks quite small and is being built right in front of their residence and directly across from the Atrium. I was very surprised they chose that location for several reasons, but I guess they won't have to move in the future if they own that land.

That new concrete building with tile going up the sides is the new synagogue.

Correct Jewish and no one can park there. Parking will be a problem for Lee's place.

This was Lee's last post on his facebook page on August 15:
"Lee’s Roadside Grill update!
We thought that by now we would be open but
the location is still a pending matter.

The previous government gave Lee’s Roadside Grill
a rental agreement for a piece of land on Simpson Bay
Beach (Kimsha Beach) but the current government
will not approve the building permit request because
permanent structures, such as Roxi beach currently under construction on the same beach, are not allowed to be built on the beach or perhaps it’s because Lee Halley is a Simpson Bay, St. Maarten man and not a foreigner. We do not want to be irresponsible and put a shack like the ones on the parking lot. We want to put something that won’t damage or destroy somebody elses home/business should/when a storm passes by.

We hope to secure a location and be open before the end of the year and I think that with Lee’s building capabilities we can do it."

Pretty vague response but since it appears it goes back to Scubaman's original post of: "They are supposed to be rebuilding alon Billy Folly RD opposite of the Atrium."

Just a guess on my part, they are already rebuilding ALONG BIlly Folly Rd, opposite Atrium.

We have been in the area for the past 2 weeks and there is construction underway but I haven't paid too much attention since we are concentrating on navigating traffic. Hard to imagine any additional parking, but when construction equipment is removed (who knows when that will happen) there may be more spaces. It has been difficult to get a spot at Peli Deli, BBB or Greenhouse....

To Elaine's point, getting around on foot on the island is very iffy for anyone with a mobility problem. It's something we now must keep in mind when we make plans.

20 years ago we would be hiking!!!!

Hope that Lee's will rise again, somewhere.

Nothing there that I can see. Either it is from a closed group or something has changed.

With the growth along the concrete edges looks like it's been there for awhile. Interesting what will happen to that one side when the heavy rains come. Looks like a water line stain there already.

Agreed, it does not look to be brand new. I think the line you refer to as a "water line stain" may be more where the stucco was applied over the block (or whatever is underneath) and is as far down as it goes. That is if we are looking at and referring to the same thing.
