Letter: A mistake in geography 

September 7, 2023

I am responding to the Concord Grapevine section of your paper. (Editor’s note: This references the Sept. 1, 2023, edition of The Concord Bridge, which featured the caption: “Susan Ellsworth and Rich Feeley went to the northernmost town in the world, 660 miles from the North Pole, Svalbard, Norway.”

Svalbard IS NOT the northernmost town — Svalbard is an island — Spitsbergen and the town which is the northernmost is Longyearbyen and not Svalbard.
