About the Quarters
St. Croix is broken up into 11 quarters (like neighborhoods or districts), which each have their own distinct feeling, developments, etc. Keep in mind that St. Croix is only 84 square miles or about 54000 acres (New York City is 468 sq miles), contains 3 national parks, and is home to about 53,000 people. (New York City’s 5 boroughs houses approx 8,175,133 people). We describe each of them briefly moving from the west end (less populated) of the island to the east end (more populated, especially around Protestant Cay).
