Palm Fences Make Good Neighbors

When I found the little cottage on Key West's Catherine Street I was a little leery of renting a place across from Suburban Propane. I wasn't worried it would blow up, as one Realtor thought. Don't worry, she told, me if Suburban Propane goes all of Key West will go."

It was aesthetics. Would I like going out of my house every day to look at a big commercial building and a chain link fence around the outside? Turns out they make great neighbors! They're quiet, and there's always a place to park on weekends and evenings. Yesterday it got even better when they planted a long hedge of mature Areca Palms along the fence. Such nice neighbors!
