Lynn Miller’s Downtown

Downtown Westport is compact: Main Street and the Post Road, plus the Saugatuck River.

But there’s a lot to see. And there’s no one who captures it better than Lynn Untermeyer Miller.

The Westport native and 1971 Staples High School graduate sees it all: the natural beauty. The shops and shoppers. And the hidden sights the rest of us walk right past.

Here’s what Lynn sees:

Imperial Avenue footbridge

Riverwalk, east side of the Levitt Pavilion

Riverwalk, behind the Levitt

West bank of the Saugatuck River

Riverwalk lights, near the Library

Westport Library

Arezzo restaurant and National Hall

Pedestrian walkway and Gorham Island, off Parker Harding Plaza

Village Square

Alley between Post Road and Church Lane

    Lynn’s work helps us see our home in fresh ways, and she herself is a pleasure to talk to. Bravo!

    What’s the deal with the YMCA badge being left behind? Are we supposed to genuflect at it in remembrance of those “days of yesteryear” when downtown Westport actually gave a rat’s ass about something other than spending/making money? What about Lyman? What’s Jen’s vision for “Westport’s Sister City” once Putin decides he’s killed enough civilians? A Starbuck’s on every corner? A Tesla double parked in every handicapped spot? Where does the UN stand and what are THEY doing about it? Just shut up and use Venmo.

  5. I was just thinking what Scott wrote. Lynn is a town treasure. Thank you, Lynn, for sharing your wonderful images. We are so blessed to live in this beautiful town and you remind us everyday.

  6. I’m with Laurie and Scott. Lynn Untermeyer Miller is an artist; she has an artist’s eye, and she captures the beauty and the feel of the town. I enjoyed every picture, and I am a little bit homesick at this moment. Thank You Lynn and Dan.

  7. We are so lucky to have Lynn. She constantly reminds us how lucky we are to live in such a special place.

  8. She is such a great artist. Thanks to her we see fabulous sites in our town in such an artistic way .

    Lynn and I were Mahackeno counselors (she, being younger than I was a CIT) back when the YMCA knew the difference between a downtown YMCA, a Gold’s Gym for overweight commuters and a summer camp. She was a treasure then as a counselor no less than she is now as a chronicler of a town’s descent into materialism.

  12. Lynn- don’t stop…ever!

  13. Just stunnung, Lynn!
