    I want to hear from Fred Cantor, to answer his own question! I have been pondering his photograph, this view, for far too many minutes now. I think I should know the answer, but I don’t feel at all sure. Fred?!

      Dorrie, your dad lives in the Stonington area, right? In any case, it is New Haven—and this beautiful marina vista was a wonderful discovery for my wife and me (especially as I went to college in New Haven and have been to various parts of it over the years since then).

      We have been several times to Stonington—which we love—and this view reminded me in certain respects of a section of that harbor.

      Specifically, the view is of the Quinnipiac River from the Fair Haven section of New Haven (and more specifically from the deck of the Fair Haven Oyster Co, a fabulous new restaurant that is co-owned by Emily Mingrone, who was named CT Chef of the Year).

      We went for our anniversary at an off hour (due to my dysfunctional immune system) and it was as terrific a combination of quality food and peaceful water views that you could ask for.
