This isn't really accurate. No one refers to these areas as districts; the proper term is "estates", and there are many more than what is depicted here.
- The United States Government refers to them as districts and sub-districts. Check the Census Bureau statistics and facts. And if you have any resource that says otherwise, I would definitely be interested to see it - do you have a web link or map? Thanks. Rarelibra 06:42, 2 August 2006 (UTC)

I was born in St. Thomas, and have lived most of my life here. The first I had ever heard of these subdistricts was on the Flags of the World Web site, which referenced Administrative divisions of the World. My immediate reaction upon seeing these "sub-districts" was that it's total bullshit. I hadn't the foggiest notion where they got this nonsense. Some of the names refer to cities and towns. Some refer to "estates," but there are approximately 200 of these, so the usage by the source is not consistent. Some, such as East End and Northside, are in common use, but have no official status; it would be like calling "Upstate" a division of New York. Others, like Southside St. Thomas, I have never, ever heard of. Cousin Ricky (talk) 07:23, 12 June 2011 (UTC)
Rarelibra, I'm glad you brought up the Census bureau, as this clears up the confusion. The Census Bureau appears to draw up its own districts for statistical purposes. These districts have no correspondence to actual administrative divisions, and Statoids admits this. I question the appropriateness of using census districts as a basis for this article; they are irrelevant, except perhaps for federal funding purposes. Cousin Ricky (talk) 07:23, 12 June 2011 (UTC)
- I have some more information on the districts used by the Census Bureau. According to my brother, who works at the legislature, they are defined by the Virgin Islands government and are used for real estate and zoning purposes. Cousin Ricky (talk) 03:34, 13 June 2011 (UTC)
