Photo Challenge #160

Last Sunday was frosty. It was a great time to post a photo challenge that read “Frost.”

Michael Calise, Jacques Voris, Joan Nevin and Ken Palumbo all knew the image by Seth Schachter showed Frost Point. (Click here to see.)

It’s located off Beachside Avenue, just east of Burying Hill Beach. The name comes from Daniel Frost, one of the 5 “Bankside Farmers” who founded Greens Farms (which in turn honors fellow farmer John Green).

For being first with the correct answer, Michael got a special prize. “06880” reader Becky Schaefer unearthed a Westport board game — “Monopoly,” but with 1980s-era downtown properties – and offered it to this week’s winner.

Just the thing to enjoy, on a frosty winter day.

This week’s photo challenge comes courtesy of David Waldman.

It looks almost as old as Frost Point.

    Remains of Villa del Sol on Elm

  4. Looks like the old YMCA to me.

  5. Michael and Michelle, you’re both close (geographically). But Chip nailed it — it’s part of what was uncovered when 36 Elm Street was torn down (as part of the land swap between the town and David Waldman — the Bedford Square developer who took the photo challenge image). The building most recently housed Villa del Sol restaurant. David said his photo showed the floor of “the original Brasserie St. Germaine — I think.” Was that the original restaurant? I remember Werner’s, back in the day…

  6. Old Y pool decor.

    I think it’s in the island where the speakeasy/hotel was located.

  8. Speaking of Villa de Sol. The owners just put a sign on front of their new place on the Post Rd in the white building complex as ‘Coming Soon’ across from Kings Highway Elementary school and next to Mini Dragons Classic Cars. Glad you did a photo challenge for the restaurant. It will help with business.
