PORTSMOUTH - Lisa DeStefano stands atop 100 Market Street overlooking her hometown.
Downtown Portsmouth lies below in rows of brick and concrete that come together and spray apart in jagged lines forming a congested masterpiece of old New England seaport architecture. From aloft, one can sense the difficulty of fitting new pieces in an old puzzle. Perhaps no one knows this better than the native architect.
