Islington Street Guide

Islington Street in Portsmouth, aka the West End, has seen a explosion of business activity over the past couple years. Once the area was known for Hannaford's supermarket, The Button Factor and few businesses like Tony's Radio and TV. Nowadays it houses more than 100 retail stores, service businesses and small offices, from beer sellers to yoga studios. Recognizing the change, PortsmouthNH.com has added a guide to the neighborhood. See www.portsmouthnh.com/west_end/.

Things to Do

John Paul Jones House
John Paul Jones House, Portsmouth NH. Revolutionary War hero John Paul Jones stayed at the home at Court and Middle streets in Portsmouth in 1777 while his ship "The Ranger" was being built. Today the house is a museum focusing on Jones' life and the Revolutionary War.

Parking Shuttle Extended

PortsmouthNH's free downtown parking shuttle will continue to operate thru Nov. 2, city officials have announced. The shuttle, which was started on a trial basis in May, has since transported approximately 13,000 one-way riders between the Connect Community Church parking lot near on Market Street (near I-95's Exit 7) and the Hanover Parking Garage. This fall the shuttle will continue to run afternoons and evenings Thursday thru Sunday. For details, see www.parkportsmouth.com. For a map of parking locations, both free and paid, click here.
