Former Remarkable Book Store Showing Signs of Life

WestportNow.com Image
After being vacant for two years, the Main Street home for 32 years of The Remarkable Book Book Store and later Talbot’s is showing signs of life. Sold by Westporter Sidney Kramer in January 2013 for $4.2 million, the 3,871-square foot building is undergoing renovations. Contractor Gus Pappajohn told the Board of Selectmen recently he did not know anything about the new tenants. Remarkable closed in 1994 and Talbot’s ended its tenancy in the spring of 2012, consolidating its women’s store in the adjacent building. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com

WestportNow Teardown of the Day: 28 Jennie Lane

An application for a permit to demolish the house at Westport’s 28 Jennie Lane, near Compo Road South, is in process. Built in 1950, the one-story ranch has 2,243 square feet, is situated on a 1.1-acre property and changed ownership last December for $900,000. Because the house was built more than 50 years ago, the application will be reviewed by the Westport Historic District Commission. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com

Metro-North Slammed for Fines, New Schedule

By Ann Radalet

www.ctmirror.org

Washington – Metro-North was slammed by Connecticut politicians today as Gov. Dannel P. Malloy criticized the passenger railroad’s new schedule, and Sen. Richard Blumenthal unveiled a study that showed the rail company paid more than $500,000 in safety-related fines in the last decade.

In a letter to Metro-North President Joseph Giulietti, Malloy said he did not understand why the accident-prone railroad plans to add minutes to train times and reduce its target for on-time performance.

“Minimizing travel time is critical of riders of the New Haven Line and fundamental to my economic development strategy in Connecticut,” the governor wrote.

The Federal Railroad Administration imposed speed restrictions on Metro-North trains after a fatal derailment in the Bronx in December.
