Heard Up North: Holiday cheer in Watertown's Public Square

Listen to this story
Across the North Country, towns and villages are decked out in their Christmas best. Historic Public Square in Watertown is adorned with lights that grace a multi-million dollar renovation completed two years ago.

David Sommerstein found the holiday cheer in Public Square for a double dose Heard Up North. First, wet your whistle with Watertown's favorite cocktail--the Tom & Jerry at the Crystal Restaurant--then Walk around to the East end of Public Square and into the Paddock Arcade. Built in 1850, it claims to be the oldest continuously operating covered shopping mall in America.

On Wednesdays, the arcade is lined with crafters selling Christmas gifts. Megan Pistolese employs the power of crystals for her jewelry.
