Vineyard Haven, Martha's
Downtown, main street in
Vineyard Haven on a summer afternoon. The cars stop for pedestrians!
dock at the Black Dog. This area takes the big boats that need their Television
plugged in each evening.
Haven is the landing point for most of the island bound ferries.
The most industrialized harbor of the coastal towns, Vineyard Haven is also a
dry town, with no liquor served.
Leaving the dock by car, driving past the Stop and Shop, your first Vineyard
driving encounter is Four Corners. A webcam allows you to keep track of this
carefully designed gridlock generator. As it sounds, you have five streets all
running into each other, and all odd angles, with no easy approach like a
traffic light. People just off the boat and rushing to go have fun meet tired
islanders who just want the crowds to thin.
The Black Dog Tavern
Fresh picked flower stand, self serve each summer day.
Walking west out of town, one finds quaint shingled homes of
beauty and character
