The other day, alert “06880” reader Peter Tulupman noticed something strange on the side of the Bank of America building downtown.
High up on the side was the numeral “1806.”
That’s not the street number — it’s 126 Post Road East.
And it’s certainly not the year it was built. Despite circling through a number of names (Fleet, anyone?) since its days as Connecticut Bank & Trust — the original tenant, I believe — this is not a 211-year-old property.
If anyone has any idea why this bank bears that number, click “Comments” below.
