Port Washington, named for a president who never slept there or even visited, is ``our town'' to its 32,000 residents, yet it's never been a town. More than most places, Port Washington is a study in contrasts. Though it's a model of modern suburbia, its Main Street is known as antiques row. Its average income ranges from $50,000 in its blue-collar neighborhoods to more than $185,000 on its Gold Coast.
