Growing up and Living in Newburyport!
I have lived in Newburyport my entire life, so almost 29 years. Born at Anna Jaques! I've lived on Boyd Drive for about 21 of those years.
What is your favorite part of growing up in Newburyport and more specifically on Boyd Drive?
My favorite part about growing up on Boyd and living there now in my adult years is the small community feel and camaraderie with all of the neighbors. Growing up there were so many kids my age, it was so convenient being able to hang out with all the neighborhood kids after school and on the weekends without needing to leave the street. I loved being able to grow up with everyone and getting to know all of the adult neighbors who I now consider friends as well. Being a dead end, we had block parties for many years that were always a great time.
Newburyport is such a great town with so many options for outdoor recreation. What are some of your favorite outdoor spots in town?
Being so close to Moseley, Maudslay and Deer Island there's always a convenient place to walk my dog and great options for bike rides.
How convenient is the location of The Cottages at Port Place?
It’s nice being so close to grocery stores and all of the other shopping. If I need to get out of town I’m only a few minutes away from 95 and 495.
The design of Port Place is an established concept with so many great elements. It’s going to be exciting to integrate this new community into our own and watch as the new home owners at Port Place create theirs. They’ll be able to appreciate all of the aspects of Boyd that I enjoyed growing up and still love now, plus they’ll have the added bonus of the open space, tot lot, central green, walkings trails and all of the other great features that are being created with this new community.
