Willoughby Spit

This is a portrait of a neighborhood, colloquially known as 'The Spit. It lies on the very edge of Norfolk, right on the Chesapeake Bay, sitting almost underneath the Bay Bridge Tunnel. During the summer, it is overtaken with tourists coming to dip their toes in the water. Gentrification threatens to take over the colorful and quirky community. Here is a time capsule from Fall 2019 before an unknown future claims the land and locals.
