Go To The Head of The Line

Union Square in New Bedford MA.  

During the Civil War, the city of New Bedford changed Main St. to Union St. and Main Square to Union Square to show solidarity against the insurgency.  It was also a place where slaves who stowed away on cotton ships could find safe haven.  When the slave hunters came to town, someone would climb the bell tower in the Pilgrim Church and warn the people.  The hunters would be harassed till they left the city.


This is where the needy come for breakfast daily.  We do a cafe style service with waiters who great the clients, sit them with a juice and coffee and take their breakfast orders. Pancakes, French Toast and eggs to order.


 Pilgrim United Church.
This church has to house three congregations to stay afloat.


 Zeiterion Performing Arts Theater
 I have tickets to Chris Botti this spring.

The sidewalk offers a great bike lane for the return commute after work.
The bikes get to go to the head of the line.

Do you like cruise ship vacations?
