Asphalt Verandas

I live in a small city, Newburyport, MA, in the most densely-populated neighborhood of that city, the South end, or "Joppa."

A lot of houses don't have back yards, or even front yards, so people here tend to make the most of the space they have in the summer, when they want to be outside.


I love the way folks can create a little oasis for relaxing and socializing right on the sidewalk, with nothing but a couple of chairs and a potted plant. Some are fancier than others, but you get the idea......
