Stock Island

"Workers from the shrimp trawlers, crawfish boats and others who make their livelihood from the sea are also in this area [Stock Island]. It is now a big community. It continues to grow as people are moving their commercial estabishments from Key West to that locality, small merchants who can't pay the high rents being charged here and are forced to move.

Who know? Maybe, some day, the Stock Island merchants will have profitable business and many of the Key West locations will be closed due to lack of sales."

Apparently not, at least not yet.
