there are plenty of right wing...in both places as well.   Equal opportunity...

Please don't be quite so negative towards folks you have never met while on this forum.  Call them hypocrites or something if you like, but those words are unnecessary.

Keith, you're silly.  I didn't think Anton was calling the user a name, rather what exists, what get, generally speaking.  (remain calm!) :)    It's all good in the hood, hollywood!

31.  Dog friendly Town (big time).  Portsmouth could be called Dogtown as I've never seen so many dogs and many walk/run without leashes (owner has leash in hand   
      everyone's fine with it, the dogs are peaceful and there aren't leash police anywhere to be seen).

32.  World Traveler, Travel Channel Show host makes it her home.  Samantha Brown travels the world and the US extensively producing her show and of all
      the places she could choose to live, she chooses Portsmouth, New Hampshire.  Her family lives in Derry, NH.

33.  You would enjoy living in the one of America's oldest cities.  In New Hamshire:  1) Dover (neighbors Ports) 2. Portsmouth, 3) New Castle (island next to Ports) and
       Rye (7.5 miles south of Ports) all were settled in 1623.

I wasn't calling any particular person on this forum a douchebag.  I was calling some people that I have met in both towns douchebags.   I find that calling someone a hypocrite is far too kind in some instances.  In those instances, I prefer the word douchebag.

I still think one of the coolest things about Portsmouth is Strawberry Banke.  It's a piece of land that has era original buildings, and some buildings that show obvious changes over the last couple of hundred years.  It shows a nice picture of what it might have looked like back in the 1600's.

I'd have to agree with this.  I was on Pierce Island yesterday when it seemed like out of no where 4 tugs where manuvering a super oil tanker/freighter.  It didn't seem like a ship of this size would be on such a narrow piece of river (Seavey Island (Maine)  just across) but there is huge floating skyscraper was. 

The outdoor theatre, next to the river was just finishing up their show and must have been at least a couple hundred people there on Sunday night.  The gardens in Prescott Park are also a popular attraction.   I think I need to go get some Strawberries now.

the strawberries that Strawberry Banke was named after is actually not the delightful fruit you might be enjoying but a different fruit called alpine or woodland Strawberry.

47.  New Year's Portsmouth and historical candlelight strolls add to the world of cultural and artistic events that lie virtually right at your doorstep.

48.  The 125 year old The Seacoast Repertory Theatre presents a full schedule of performing arts programming year round. 
       http://www.seacoastrep.org/
       Portsmouth is home to 5 Performing Arts Theatres.

49.   A progressive business climate, superior education systems, safe and comfortable residential neighborhoods, and a sophisticated, diversified cultural environment rarely
        found in cities of this size all contribute to the unique vitality of the area.

50.  Healthcare.  Over the past decade, the Seacoast area has become a regional leader in healthcare services. With several full-service hospitals, specialty clinics and
      psychiatric and retirement care facilities, the Seacoast is home to some of the finest and most advanced health institutions in New England.

I'm not going to post this as a number because it's simply my opinion.  The seacoast is close in proximity to Maine and Mass which both have relaxed laws on Marijuana.  I've found it to be a good thing for the black market marijuana industry.  More dealers and buyers because of the lessened risk.  In MA, as it stands now, you can be ticketed and do not have to show ID to the officer. 

Some have even been caught, given a fake name, not paid the ticket. . .and MA does not have a method of going after people who don't pay (or so they say)

Better quality weed is already in Maine.  Perhaps it's coming to Mass as well.

The Wal-Mart and mall are actually in a border town, but I understand what you did there.

good ole' Newington.  You're spot on Keith and I also understand what Marcus did there.   Newington is such a small place not many people realize that the mall and one Wal-Mart (the old HQ store) are there and not Portsmouth.

Newington is a nice little town as well.  A really neat restored colonial home sits on a road that once connected to Boston.  Now it has been blocked off by the Pease AFB.  For more info PM me.
