I love Bouncing Baby.  Downtown Jacksonville looks so alive and vibrant.  Streetcars, people, buildings.  Who would have imagined?

The Matthews Bridge is 60. The bridge is not lit at night. If you decline to help an area progress or stave off a blight you will have an increasing blight and flight from the area. Imagine a Skyway from Atlantic Beach straight into downtown. The route is there and it could be elevated from the river to Craig Field. Then on the ground to the parking at the beach.
