I have lived on Flagler Drive in downtown West Palm Beach for 25 years and the worst thing I have seen happen to the downtown area is Flagler Shore.
When the planting and improvements were made on Flagler, it was a beautiful and pleasant drive along the water. During the experiment with Flagler Shore, the traffic was congested and no one stopped for anyone crossing a street. The view of the water was blocked and no one used the street. All the walkers were still on the sidewalk.
I urge everyone connected with or responsible for this disaster to stop it now, and please don’t let it ever return.
