Heartbreak Hotel: Inn at National Hall Set to Close Monday

By James Lomuscio

Westport’s Inn at National Hall closes indefinitely on Monday and like the murals and tapestries adorning its high walls, wallpapered and framed with decorative cherry moldings, certain memories remain imprinted on the mind of Marco Degl’Innocenti, the inn’s manager for 13 years.WestportNow.com Image

One easily recalled is the first of President Clinton’s several visits to Westport for Democratic National Committee fundraisers in 1998.

“We had Secret Service agents everywhere, a guy at every corner on every floor,” said Degl’Innocenti,  a native of Florence, Italy. The streets were also blocked off, and frogmen patrolled the adjacent Saugatuck River.

“We’ve had Clinton stay here, Al Gore stay here, and Monica Lewinsky stay,” he added, catching himself. “But not all at the same time.”

WABC-TV Goes Dark on Cablevision, New Haven Down Briefly

WestportNow.com Image
UPDATE Westport customers of Cablevision were unable to access the New York ABC television station, WABC-TV, early today after Cablevision and ABC owner Walt Disney apparently failed to resolve a financial dispute over monthly subscription fees. In addition, ABC’s New Haven affiliate, WTNH-TV, which has not been part of the ABC-Cablevision dispute, went black on Cablevision customer screens at midnight as well but returned an hour later. Unlike on the channel 7 screen which carried audio and video messages concerning the dispute, channel 8, where WTNH-TV is normally seen, was dark for the period with undecipherable sounds.
