This weekend’s debut of West Palm Beach’s new waterfront park brought with it of the best nights in recent memory for local businesses, WPTV reported. “For the 13 years that we’ve been on this street, we’ve never seen so many people on Clematis Street,” said Jennifer Morales, who owns nearby Pizza Girls. The city’s new 4.5-acre attraction could provide a critical boost for business owners struggling to stay afloat during the recession.
