Stephen Ritterbush was practically born on the water. After moving to Annapolis from Long Island in the 1950s, Ritterbush’s earliest memories were of catching glimpses of the city’s waterfront on his way to Green Street School (now known as Annapolis Elementary School) and later as a teen shredding coconuts at Jack Schley’s delicatessen inside Market House. He soon found himself skittering around Spa Creek and the Severn River in a progressively larger series of boats, even using the water to get to high school.
