Better Know a Street: Berwick Street

Berwick Street
Here's a look at Portland's Berwick Street. I hadn't explored this little area of Portland previously and was pleasantly surprised. I'm not sure if this is considered to be East Deering or if there is another name for this neighborhood between I-295 and Casco Bay. As far as this particular street goes, I don't have much information about this street other than a few photos. I presume the name is somehow related to Berwick, Maine, which itself is named after Berwick-upon-Tweed, England (per wikipedia).

Here's an aerial view from google maps:

Part of the view at the end of the street. The Maine Yacht Center is in the foreground and the Eastern Promenade is straight ahead. Also, the B&M Baked Beans factory is to the right of this photo a bit. 
Stay tuned for some more photos from this scenic neighborhood later this week.
