>PINEAPPLE BAY, St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands — Why would a corporation let a beautiful resort die? Why would it let the resort gasp for breath and be overrun with weeds, broken windows, ripped awnings and filth?
The senseless death of the Grand Beach Resort on St. Thomas is sick and sad.
It has spent more than five years rotting away on one of the most beautiful bays in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
