Main Street Holiday

Yesterday’s wild weather disrupted the plans of many Westporters.

It started the night before. On Thursday, as the rain and wind began, “06880” photographer Lynn Untermeyer Miller was downtown.

It’s still there. There are many special places to feel it, all around Main Street.

Lynn captured much of the magic Saturday night. Here is some of what she saw:

Lynn was intrigued by windows … 

… and what was beyond them …

… and of course, the shoppers …

but always, it all comes down to:
