Sunrise Over The City

One of the things that you see less often here at The Daily Portsmouth is the city from above.  Sunrises also show up less often, mostly because I cherish my sleep, but also because it’s rare to fit into my schedule. Today, I’d like you to enjoy both a view from high above Hanover Street […]

On The Hill

The Norther Tier of Portsmouth is an interesting and changing place.  The neighborhood known as The Hill sits atop this part of town in the block between Deer Street and Hanover Street, and is filled with older historic homes from the area that were saved from the urban renewal efforts that saw hundreds of homes […]

On The Hill

The Hill is a historic and colorful neighborhood located atop Deer and Hanover Streets in downtown Portsmouth.  It’s filled with beautifully colored homes from around the city, in the city’s Norther Tier.  This area is set for some interesting changes over the next five years, with the progression of the Portwalk Place project and the […]

The Clock at Sunset

I know that you’ve seen a lot of the North Church lately.  So have I.  I think that’s a good thing – this particular shot was fascinating to me…the perfect colors of the setting sun on a fall night, along with the subtle variations of the contrasting lighting on each side of the clocktower.  I […]

Hilton Garden Inn on The Hill

100 Market Street

This shot was taken from the corner of Hanover Street & Market Street.  The building at 100 Market is one of the newer commercial real estate additions in town, one of the first major redevelopment projects dating back 5-10 years ago (I’m not sure when it was completed)….then came the Popovers building on Congress Street, […]

A View Down Congress Street

Here is another view of Congress Street from the High Street intersection.  As I’ve posted in the past, this building has replaced the former Eagle Photo Supply building and some older structures.  This building was finished back in 2006, and was one of the first major redevelopments of the downtown Portsmouth area…followed by the Portwalk […]

Arrested Development | Martingale Wharf

One-half of the Martingale Wharf building currently under construction (with an aptly titled photo paying homage to the section in curbed.com).  Wanted to revisit this one since it has begun to bother me much more that in a city as vibrant during the summer months as Portsmouth, visitors see this symbol of real estate gone […]
