Tag Archives: Deadman Brook
First there were the library windows.
Then there was the point behind Levitt Pavilion, on the Saugatuck River.
Last week — for the 3rd Photo Challenge in a row — our image showed a bit of that beautiful, active slice of Westport just steps from downtown.
Johanna Rossi’s shot was of the charming, underused bridge spanning Deadman Brook (which honors not a no-longer-living person, but someone long ago with the improbable last name of Deadman).
It connects the Levitt/library parking lot with another lot, off Imperial Avenue. (It is transformed every Thursday from May to November, into the Westport Farmers’ Market.)
Johanna took the photo at night. The lights threw some readers off. Incorrect guesses included the Sherwood Mill Pond bridge heading to Compo Cove; the wooden bridge extending from Parker Harding Plaza over the Saugatuck River; Bridgewater headquarters off Weston Road; Saugatuck Shores, and Ned Dimes Marina at Compo Beach.
Louis Weinberg, Dan Vener, Andrew Colabella, Fred Rubin, Ralph Balducci, Jonathan McClure, Jo Ann Flaum and Jalna Jaeger all knew that the bridge is actually downtown, over Deadman Brook.
To see the photo, click here. To see it in real life — which you really should — head downtown. Any time, day or night.

Fantastic fall foliage, all around town.
