  7. Thank you for the wonderful interviews with Otto Schoenstein and David Berson. Great characters right here in Greenport. Creative energy turned community support.
    I am in awe of the dedication to supporting the crafts of boating and ship building, preserving the historic past of the area while keeping an eye on present and future.
