Key West’s iconic yellow, black and red buoy is back in business and brighter than ever.
On Monday, Key West Mayor Craig Cates said Key West’s Southernmost Point marker – which was damaged last month by Hurricane Irma – is freshly plastered, painted and ready for pictures. Original artist Danny Acosta, along with Henry DelValle, on Monday completed the lettering including 90 miles to Cuba.
“It was an important part of our recovery to have that repaired,” said Cates, noting it is one of the most photographed spots in the Keys. “I’ve never seen it damaged like that before.”
