Is Westport best defined by the place we go to swim, sun, stroll, sail, skate, grill, play basketball and pickleball and play with our kids — or by the warm, walkable neighborhood with restaurants, local businesses, a train station and historic bridge that was the center of population and commerce long before we had a downtown?

We’ll know on Monday.

Thanks to all who participated in “Westport Madness.”

And you did it all without office pools, and putting down any cash.

(Kudos to Staples High School sophomore Luca Caniato, who created and handled the back end of this contest brilliantly.)

  1. Saugatuck absolutely!

  2. Carl Addison Swanson, Wrecker, '66.

    Remember the March Madness pool at Mario’s? I think it was near 250K and with a waiting line (Welcome to Westport) of course. My vote goes for the old YMCA.
