￼In Deceember 2006 the United States Embassy moved to its location in Liguanea. There had been some controversy because the new buildings were being constructed adjacent to a well to do residential Kingston 6 neighbourhood. That was dust that has now settled.
On the other side of the road there is Standpipe, an impoverished community have seen an increase in entrepreneurial opportunities with the daily influx of persons doing business at the embassy.
From food and beverages, to chair rentals, parking, whatever is needed is provided by these entrepreneurs who have clearly tapped into the needs of their clientele.
