Once you’ve visited the Northport Village Poetry Path, you can take it home with you by stopping in at The Firefly Gallery at 90 Main Street in Northport and picking up a copy of “Poetry Path: A Walk in the Park” which contains all twelve poems and their accompanying artwork, as well a wonderful bonus of the three honorable mentions and their artwork.


While walking the path is the best way to take in the poems, if you can’t make it to Northport you can still enjoy it by purchasing the book on Amazon. Of course, if you’re local please get it from Firefly since a portion of the proceeds from any books they sell goes to the Gallery.
