St. Augustine is old

As far as United States continuously controlled European colonial cities, St. Augustine is the oldest. I’m not sure you’re sure what I just wrote, but it makes sense to me. This must be one of the oldest streets. It’s nestled close to the waterfront and around numerous hotels, cafes and antique shops. What’s amazing to me is despite being founded in 1565, St. Augustine’s population totals 12,975 as of 2010. That means they’ve grown by an average of 29 people per year over the course of the city’s history.

It’s impossible to separate the new from the old, so I recorded some headlights meandering down the cobbled way. Or is that a ghost? It’s said this is as haunted a town as any, and the notoriously haunted “Old Fort” is just a couple of blocks the other way.
