Pics Of The Day #1103

On a normal Friday morning, Westport’s business district would have been bustling.

Today was not a normal Friday morning. Neither was any day this week, or last. And it won’t be normal next week either.

Alert — and saddened — Molly Alger took a lonely tour through town this morning. Here’s what she saw.

But then — a few hours later — skies cleared. The sun came out. And all over town, people smiled.

    I used to live across the street from the Kowalsky property on South Morningside Dr. I thought a few years ago it was in the market.

      I was on the market. I’m not sure what’s the status is right now. I just know whoever is taking care of the property they’re aerating the soil. A few random survey stakes have appeared which might have to do with the renovation of house and landscaping on the corner of Turkey Hill and Clapboard.

        That house belonged to a Polish family. I think Paul and Mary somehow brought them from Poland and he worked on the β€œfarm.” This was in the 1960s andI remember they had a daughter.
