This part of Palm Beach County is young, so young. It was swampland til the 60s, after which it was slathered in beige structures. Nothing I recognize as a neighborhood. I took a sort of cold comfort when I ran across this construction site because at first glance it seemed to contain some character… depth, blight, renewal… A little life force, a little history…something. In reality it’s a new construction; in a couple months it’ll be beige.
