  1. Truly beautiful!

  2. LOVEY COURTYARD – DOES GARAGE GO UNDER THIS? AND HOW MANY CARS DOES IT TAKE? IS IT OPEN TO THE PUBLIC? AND HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

    • The garage is actually off Elm Street – this courtyard is at the intersection of Church Lane, Post Road East and Main Street. It is open to the public, and free. I’m not sure how many cars, but it’s substantial.

  3. Wrong way to hang the US flag. The blue field goes on the left as seen by the viewer.

    • In Dan’s blog about Bedford Square dated April 2, Linda Tufts pointed out the same mistake regarding the hanging position of the flag. To his credit, David Waldman replied the following day and acknowledged the error. He wrote that he’d fix it ASAP. However, that was 20 days ago. I guess his ASAP is different than what some of us might have expected.

  4. Etruscan, Greek, Roman, Westportian.

  5. About an hour and a half before the picture of this elegant yet lonely courtyard at Bedford Square was posted, 44 of the 46 parking spaces in nearby Sconset Square were filled with the cars of patrons eating at its sole dining establishment, The Penguin. Only the 2 handicap spaces were empty.

    More people, who had evidently parked elsewhere, were walking in from Church Lane as well as through the little pathway which leads from the Post Road. I watched in amazement as they entered the Penguin too. The Penguin’s bar was filled. Its dining room was at full occupancy and its outdoor dining space, near as I could work out, had but three empty tables.

    It’s interesting that this little shopping center, which has been in the news lately, appears to be uniquely inhabited by small, independent businesses – including, it would seem, at least two women-owned enterprises. But it’s quite another thing to see what happens there these days after the sun goes down.

  6. Dan, I wish there could be a love button for some of these photos you post. This is beautiful! I love that you can recognize this is still the grand old lady of Main and the Post Road – the old Y. I’m impressed and hope this revives Westport’s wonderful downtown as I remember it — a bustling center for the community where you could run into anyone you know at anytime, especially on the weekend.
