While the top words to describe The Point neighborhood in a recent PlanIt survey were: “community, strong, diverse, misunderstood, tight-knit, awesome,” too many Salem residents either don’t know the neighborhood, or don’t know its positive aspects.
Along with many positive words, one PlanIt participant submitted the photo below to show that the Point is, in fact, “Nice!”
This photo inspired me to show more of what is nice about The Point in an ongoing photo-series: The Beauty of The Point. Submit Photos @SalemPSProject
My first stop was the newly opened Celia’s Restaurant on Congress Street. The fish stew with yucca and pickled onions was delicious. As many PlanIt participants also noted, the neighborhood food is part of The Beauty of The Point!
