The assemblage of colorful houses reminds one of the little houses found in Curacao (Berg Altena neighbourhod).

..It is infortunate that Bois Jalousie in Petionvile is a lair of vice and the houses themselves are built on a land that can slide any time due to the steep slope and the fact that these houses are constructed wihtout any respect for building codes on a side of the Morne l'Hopital which is not allocated for homes.

They are a safety hazard!!!!
