68.  Gundalows.

      Gundalows were sailing barges that worked the waters of the Piscataqua River and Great Bay. Flat-bottom and equipped with huge masts, they transported heavy   
      cargos, such as brick, to Portsmouth or to ships waiting in Portsmouth Harbor, and returned with goods for the cities and towns upstream.   A gundalow replica, the 
      Edward H. Adams is often docked at Prescott Park.

69.   Restaurants.  More than 60 in the area, 15 being waterfront, 33 in Portsmouth (there's another waterfront deck I know of that's not on this list but they do chowders + more but
        they are only open for breakfast and lunch, the name is Genos, 177 Mechanic St.  Also there is an Outback Steakhouse, an Ollive Garden, an Applebees, plus a number of other

Wow! This is an awesome thread. This thread pushed me over the edge. If I go to NH, I'm moving to Portsmouth. My only contingency is where I go to law school. I wish UW Madison was in Portsmouth!

I don't care if it is leftist. First of all, who has surveyed every single citizen there? To me, the advantages you guys have described outweigh the political statistics by far. In fact, that makes it even more attractive to me because its a challenge! College students, sidewalk cafes, beaches, nightlife, shops....it all sounds really sweet to me!

Jefferson, are you applying to Franklin Pierce Law Center?  It's the only law school in NH.

71.  Moran Towing Tugboats

      Tugboats operated by Moran Towing Company dock at the heart of Portsmouth's waterfront and often are identified with the city.

72.  The North Church.

      If you're near the center of downtown, you'll hear the North Church ring it's bell on the hour.  This is the Landmark of downtown Portsmouth.  This Church was built  in 1854 to replace a meeting house that was bulit in 1712, that replaced another built in 1671.  It dominates the eastern side of Market Square and can be seen from almost anywhere in the city.  And there's interesting history of it on the website below.

73.  The Hill.

    The Hill is what remains of an Italian neighborhood in Portsmouth's North End that was razed during a 1960s bout of urban renewal. A dozen buildings - some dating 
    back to the 1700s - were saved and converted to offices and the Blue Mermaid restaurant. Some buildings were moved to Strawbery Banke Museum.

I might go to the Massachusetts School of Law and commute from Portsmouth. Its the cheapest one in New England.

Portsmouth isn't a bad haul to Boston.  From my house on the border it's probably about 1/2-45 mins to get to Boston.

74.  The Ocean, the cool Ocean breeze; the smell of the Ocean; the Sound of the ocean with your eyes closed.  And lastly, falling asleep to the roar of the crashing waves,
       under an umbrella on the beach.

and while NH has the shortest coastline. . .it has plenty of places along it to take a nap.  I'm an expert on this.

That's more of a blog than a group.  There is a meetup group with a few overlapping faces, http://www.meetup.com/nhseacoastliberty/

What are the numbers like for Seacoast Liberty?  I was a bit spoiled by the all the faces that greeted me at Taproom, however the seacoast is set for my initial stomping grounds and I'm hoping the beaches haven't swallowed up the porcs... :)

It's an outright lie that the Federal Government cannot do anything right.  They put on one hell of a puppet show.

Not quite as many as Manchester, but it's a good group.  I hear that the weekly get-together at La Festa pizzaria (Dover) is a dozen +/- these days.  I haven't been able to make it in a while.  Last fall a SeAL couple hosted a party and the turnout was around 40 I believe.

I think the Pizza there is some of the best in NH (big variety of large slices also avail.).  They have many premium drafts there but I think the giant can of Sapporo beer is the best buy for the money (if you don't mind Sapporo beer or drinking out of a can versus a draft).  :)
