One More Eyesore

Last summer, “06880”  turned a disapproving eye on “the ugliest building in Westport“: the Quonset hut behind the Boat Locker, on the Post Road off North Maple Avenue.

Within seconds — well, a few weeks — it was cleaned up.  It’s not exactly the Taj Mahal, but at least it’s no longer Calcutta.

Today’s target is the building between the fire station and the old Curran Cadillac — across from Five Guys, to use the most modern GPS.

It was abandoned around the time Chuck Berry sang about Maybelline‘s Coupe de Ville.

Since then it’s been all downhill.

Rotting wood, chipped paint, busted gutters — not a shred of evidence that anyone cares about the property, or plans to do something with it.

Will “06880’s” eyesore-cleaning lightning strike twice?

Stay tuned.

    At one point in the 70s this building was “Dress Barn” (I think I might have even worked there for a couple of days) and I think it also was Republican Headquarters during one or two presedential elections somewhere along the line. It was probably a nice little home way back when… It would make a great bank now, wouldn’t it?
