New St. Maarten guide to be presented Friday


PHILIPSBURG–On Friday, August 18, Robert Espitia will be launching the second edition of Where’s Where in St. Maarten (WWSM) at Philipsburg Jubilee Library. The full-size and full- colour magazine will be presented to the public during Friday’s launching event, which will start at 7:00pm.

Where’s where in St. Maarten is considered a useful tool and is dedicated to helping the newest citizens as well as the most native veterans find their way to different places, including Government buildings and offices, community organizations, private businesses or any other location fast, easy and without any hassles.
With assistance of a host of map makers and graphics designers, publisher Espitia has created a publication that is to stand the test of time and will be in circulation for many years to come.
The Library still has a copy of WWSM’s first edition, which was published by Espitia in 1997.
According to Espitia, his project consist of hundreds of man-hours, with thousands of dollars invested in it to gather information and create the 13 area maps with a listd of more than 1,000 street names in alphabetical order with the exact map coordinates for each street on St. Maarten.
WWSM 2017 features different sections, namely: 13 full-size, highly accurate area maps of St. Maarten; a list of 1,023 street names in alphabetical order with the exact area map coordinates for each street name; 140 of the most important places to know on St. Maarten with photos; and cultural symbols and their meanings. Interviews with some of the island’s emerging entrepreneurs and non-profit leaders are also included in the magazine and much more.
Everyone that live on St. Maarten, or those who have just arrived can use the magazine. The general public is invited to drop by at the Library and get their free copy of Where’s Where in St. Maarten.
