In March, “06880” ran a story about Bill and Kathy Hemson’s home.
She’s a 3d-generation Westporter. They’d lived at 3 Sharp Turn Road — a small street off Whitney — since 1973. They were only the 2nd owners of the house.
The Hemsons were downsizing. They knew their home would be a teardown. Kathy matter-of-factly described her feelings about their 40 years in 1 house, and their beloved — but changing — neighborhood.
On Thursday, says photographer Dave Matlow, a demolition permit was issued.
He took the picture below at 9:35 a.m. yesterday — less than 24 hours later.
