The Point Postcards danced in the breeze on Essex Street
Sunday was an ideal day to sit on Salem’s pedestrian mall – Essex Street – and share stories and postcards from The Point Neighborhood. We set up our environment for storytelling, invited visitors to sit and write, but mostly we all stood and talked about Salem’s most misunderstood neighborhood. Point residents found their home on the large aerial, some shared new stories from the community, and Salem tourists took postcards to mail off a different view of witch city.
The set-up and us!
Postcards for the Taking!
