Photo Challenge #390

There are not a lot of reasons to look up on Main Street.

Most folks are focused on where they’re headed. If you’re crossing the street, be alert — Westport drivers are not always, um, courteous.

Nor is the architecture particularly compelling.

Most of it, anyway.

The Blue Mercury building — on the east side of Main Street — has an interesting feature up near the top: 2 windows with blue trim. (Click here to see.)

Morley Boyd calls an “Italianate-style gable sash.” Who am I to argue?

It was the subject of last week’s Photo Challenge. Besides Morley, 3 other “06880” readers recognized this architectural quirk: Lynn Untermeyer Miller, Elaine Marino and Mary Ann Batsell. Congratulations (but watch where you’re going!).

This week’s Photo Challenge is below. If you know where in Westport you’d see this, click “Comments” below.

  5. Correct — the Porch @ Christie’s. If you haven’t yet been to the Cross Highway spot for breakfast, lunch, dinner, coffee or sweets — why not?!
