The Westport Arts Center screening today of the documentary “Keeping Time: The Life, Music & Photographs of Milt Hinton” was followed by a discussion that included producers of the 2002 award-winning work—David G.

He died in 2000 at the age of 90, leaving behind more than 60,000 photos of fellow jazz musicians taken during his seven-decade long career as a musician.

How Others See Us: Westport “Chock-Full” of Options

Today’s Albany (N.Y.) Times Union highlights Westport as an attractive vacation destination close enough for a day trip or weekend getaway.

“Looking for a coastal getaway that’s antithetical to the tourist-trappings of so many New England seaside towns?,” writes freelancer Stacey Morris. “Look no farther than Westport, Conn.

“The town of approximately 30,000 sits quietly at the edge of Long Island Sound and is close enough for an easy day trip or weekend getaway. It may not be a red-hot vacation destination, but Westport is chock-full of the elements that make it ideal for those seeking quiet doses of sea breezes, boating, plentiful seafood and shopping.

“Long known as an affluent bedroom community of Manhattan, the first urbanites were said to have started fanning out to Westport as early as 1640, when the New York City was still known as New Amsterdam.
