The Montague Street Piazza appears to have been a success on its second Sunday, according to Chelsea Mauldin, Executive DIrector of the Montague Street Business Improvement District. She says the street was abound with shoppers, people dining at the sidewalk cafes, and residents playing with their kids in the street, reading the newspaper and just enjoying the view on the Promenade.
Ms. Mauldin can’t stress enough that the Piazza is about about creating a pleasant environment for relaxing outside, browsing in the Montague Street shops, and dining at the street’s restaurants. She adds that the aim is not to have a block-party atmosphere, but a destination where you can watch the world go by.
