A Facelift for Former Save the Children Home

WestportNow.com Image
The building at 54 Wilton Road, former home of Save the Children, is getting a facelift, according to developer David Waldman, one of the owners. He said workers are removing the “exterior skins” from the center section. A new middle section will then be created that will house the lobby of the new building. He said the construction is an “adaptive re-use” since the internal support structure remains. Future regulatory hearings will address the disposition of the remainder of the existing structure, Waldman said. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com

Real Estate Report: Increased Price Reductions Do Not Signal Buyer’s Market

By Judy Szablak

Special to WestportNow

There have been a noticeably high amount of price reductions in Westport over the last 45 days. However, that does not signal a buyer’s market.

Contrary to what some buyers may think, a price reduction does not necessarily signal distress on the seller’s part.

It is more of an acknowledgment that the suggested asking price was not in line with the market.

Price adjustments are indicated whenever a property has received little or no showings. Additionally, when there have been a number of showings with no offers, it suggests that the home is priced slightly above where it should be in order to effect an offer and sale.

Granger at the Movies: ‘Dunkirk,’ ‘Maudie,’ ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’

By Susan Granger

Special to WestportNow

World War II’s Miracle of Dunkirk has never been addressed in American cinema. “Dunkirk” details the epic rescue of 338,000 Allied troops from the beaches of Dunkirk, France: the biggest evacuation in military history.

WestportNow.com Image

From May 27 to June 4, 1940, the Allies were surrounded on all sides by German forces (never named, just referred to as “the enemy”), while the Luftwaffe repeatedly buzzed and bombarded the beaches.

Since the water was too shallow for destroyers to get close to the beach, brave British civilians volunteered to cross the English Channel in everything from fishing boats to barges to retrieve the troops—while under constant bombardment.

Filmmaker Christopher Nolan (the “Dark Knight” trilogy, “Inception,” “Interstellar”) tells the suspenseful survival story from three meticulously interwoven perspectives, based on fictional characters.
