Everybody knows about our oysters, our seafood industry, and our rich maritime history, but did you know that the real estate people (Yankees!) who developed Apalachicola designed it to resemble Manhattan? That’s why we have a Bowery and a Battery Park, and why some Water Street warehouses look like those in New York City’s South Street shipping district. You can read about this in Lee L. Willis’s Southern Prohibition: Race, Reform, and Public Life in Middle Florida, 1821 – 1920, just one of many great books about Apalach in stock at Downtown Books.
