“Beautiful gallery with original oil paintings of local landscapes and abstract impressions of the regionally known artist Dennis Sirrine. Charming Water Street is one of three historic main streets in America that have remained architecturally intact. Dont miss it. Galleries, restaurants, antiques, coffee houses, and the historic lighthouse will be a day trip in itself. drive to The Point for a view of three states: New York, Rhode Island and Connecticut where the Long Island Sound meets the Atlantic Ocean. ”
