Perspective of a New Resident in Newburyport



marketsquare_feb2016A few weeks ago, we hosted local historian, Ghlee Woodworth, and her presentation on the Urban Renewal in Newburyport during the 1970’s.

As a six year resident of Newburyport, it was eye opening to see the rollercoaster of history that this town has endured. When my wife and I moved here, we called it ‘the quintessential New England town’ and our realtor told us ‘if you live here, you’ll feel like you’re on vacation every day!’

Six years later…we still feel this way.

A few years after living here, we were shocked to hear that our quaint little town had a rough and tumble past.

Wait…the Tannery was an actual Tannery?

All these stores were boarded up?

You could buy a mansion on High Street for less than a million dollars?!

Ghlee’s presentation was both eye opening and inspiring. To think that our city was built up, torn down, built up, burnt down, boarded up and rebuilt is absolutely astonishing. It made me think, no wonder lifelong residents of this city have such pride in what they’ve created! As one attendee joked to me “I’ve lived here for 40 years and I’ve applied for citizenship, but was denied…”

The purpose of this post is to say thank you to those that made the right decisions in 1970 and also to motivate the ‘newbies’ in this town to continue the tradition of being both innovative and respective of the history of Newburyport. We live in a really really REALLY special place.

A more difficult challenge? Diversity? A way to get new medals for the trophy count, where player takes a different angle on the game play? And also besides the fact that they fall sprays health, if they die, I think it is rather a kind of troll, because the agent Click essay Hunter only re spawn and level up to stronger monsters... In any case, it is a terrible idea. It is hard to get something done and imagine someone you hate connect your room only kill you over and over again and if they headphone, to talk... endless trash Chasing my agent settings are off, as they have from the first day. No hope difficulty + hunt for agents enabled? Forget about it lo. The cheapest thing ever.
