About Ego Alley
The City dock area filled with shops and restaurants (check out Storm Brothers Ice Cream Factory at 130 Dock Street, Buddy’s Crabs & Ribs at 100 Main Street, Rams Head Tavern at 33 West Street). Appropriately named because sailors developed egos after successfully turning large commercial ships around in the narrow waterway ‘alley.’
