I grew up in Bangor, Maine. Dad in Air Force, so for a few years we lived on Dow AFB. Then Capehart housing off base. School was St. Mary’s and then high school was John Bapst. Bangor of course was a bit different back in the 50’s and 60’s. My dad is still there, old geezer that he is, and my youngest sister (well, until I got married then mom and dad had two more girls!) lives across the river in Brewer. So this is a bit nice for me to read and view the pictures.
While we think all of Maine is pretty cool, we recognize that some people might not realize it. And that’s okay! That just means more for us! But, we’ve also noticed that news outlets across the country like to include Maine towns on their lists of coolest cities. The one we see most often is Portland. While we agree that Portland is pretty cool, we think there are lots of other cool places throughout the state. That’s why we were pretty excited when we noticed that Matador recently named a different city to their list of coolest cities in America!
Do go and get a bit more information, not much really, and mostly the pictures…do search for Bangor and learn more.
