And The Winner Is…

…Marc Litvinoff, and the Levitt Pavilion.

Recently, the Westport Weston Chamber of Commerce put out a call for photos. The winner would grace the front covers of the new Visitors Guide/Membership Directory and map.

Here’s what you’ll see:

Levitt - Marc Litvinoff - Chamber of Commerce cover

The shot of the new Levitt Pavilion was taken from Grace Salmon Park, on Imperial Avenue. It also shows the west bank of the Saugatuck River — and a stunning sky.

Litvinoff’s photo was chosen from over 600 entries, by dozens of Westporters.

“We had to make some tough choices. There were so many we could have used. But in the end, we felt this one said ‘Westport,'” says Chamber executive director Matthew Mandell.

The guide will be released in May. The Levitt kicks off its new season in June.

The view that Litvinoff captured so well is available every day of the year.

  1. Thanks Dan for picking up the story. I really appreciate it.

  2. Beautiful lighting of morning or evening? I remember well the Westport skies and the lighting of the skies at the different times of the day — the lighting at dusk and dawn were always special – which one is this?

  3. Shot from Stella!-the-Doggie and my favorite park!!! 😉

    Good choice – a beautiful view. I will save this to look at when I move – since i’m having to leave WP unfortunately come summer but I have great memories of my some 30 years living here PS I am moving to New Orleans where my son lives ( and works at the Intercontinental Hotel) and I have a spare bedroom – all visitors welcome!!!

  6. Wow, that’s astonishing; it’s one of those images where you can easily imagine what the air smells like. Nice choice – and well done Marc.

    Grace Salmon Park is a treasure, though few people know about it. There are outstanding (and peaceful) views of the Saugatuck River looking both upriver and down . There’s parking and an easy-to-walk loop (you can cover the distance in 5 minutes). It’s one of of Westport’s best-maintained passive-use parks because the Westport Garden Club keeps an eye on it (they helped create it back in the 1970s). There are some wetlands in the center of the park, which provide additional site diversity, but the loop circumvents them so ordinary walking shoes are usually just fine.

    Gorgeous photo, Mr. Litvinoff. Thank you.

  10. Thanks Wendy. My wife and I used to live very close to Grace Salmon Park and enjoyed walking along the water.
