30 Years From the MVM Vault: It Ain’t Over Till Bubbles Has Her Say

“You know, in order for us to maintain our peace and our haven and what we consider to be our paradise, we impose almost impossible burdens on the local people who live here year round. We never ask anybody else in our lives, off the Island, not to take advantage of the big buck. If there’s a dollar to be made, go ahead and make it. Here we’re saying to people, ‘you’re going to ruin our paradise if you make a lot of money. There’ll be too much traffic. It will be just like New York.’”

– Beverly Sills, MV Magazine, 1990
