The P&C has a good article about the ongoing effort to rebuild Bowen's Island after it burned down back in October 2006.
It reminds me a lot of the dearly departed Rockaway Athletic Club up in Columbia, which burned to the ground back in 2002, about 3 months before I left the city for good (there may or may not have been a causal connection). Anyway, they built a new Rockaway, and the food is pretty much the same, but somehow with the new building the atmosphere just isn't the same and you lose half the effect.
Let's hope Bowen Island has more success in recreating their old style.
