Time and Tide of Portsmouth

Once a rough and tumble seaport, Portsmouth, NH, has enjoyed a renaissance as the downtown has been restored and new money has renovated the Colonials and saltboxes that line the narrow streets. Yet rejuvenation comes at a hefty price and Portsmouth, the jewel of the New Hampshire seacoast, struggles with just how to define itself.
