Compass Point[edit]

Compass Point (Bahamas) redirects here. Can someone familiar with why add some text to the article to indicate what Compass Point is in this context? -- JHunterJ (talk) 14:32, 2 April 2009 (UTC)[reply]


I'm lost. This article lists New Providence as having the same area as Nassau, yet 80,000 more residents -- the exact same population as The Bahamas' total (according to the article). Something seems to have slipped through the cracks. – anna 12:08, 28 April 2011 (UTC)[reply]
