The start of 2020 brought quiet to the streets of Newport as businesses shut their doors amongst the surge of Covid-19. The once bustling streets of the Broadway district were still and empty as businesses temporarily went dark and people stayed cooped up inside. As we head into the summer months, Newport is looking to reestablish some normalcy. A city fed by the food industry, hospitality, and tourism, businesses are anxious to find ways to reopen and draw back their clientele. The Broadway district, lovingly nicknamed “restaurant row” and packed with 6 blocks of great bars, indie restaurants, coffee shops, live music, bakeries and more, is starting to buzz again with life and excitement for the high season.
Our listing at 8 Stewart is tucked away in the Broadway district and easily walkable to all of Broadway’s best eateries, shops, parks, and studios. This darling, and young gambrel home is low maintenance, move-in ready, and chock full of charm.
We want you to love Broadway like we do! We took to the streets, and our phones, to call around and compile a list of Broadway businesses to support amid the era of Covid-19. Here is what we found:
