Going Down: 167 Cross Highway

WestportNow.com Image
The house at 167 Cross Highway came down today. Part of the 5,038 square-foot house was built in 1790. The house and two other buildings sit on a 7.53-acre parcel. It changed hands in August, 2007 for $5 million when it was purchased from the songwriting/production team of Nickolas Ashford and Valerie Simpson. It was the WestportNow Teardown of the Day on Aug. 5, 2007. As the demolition proceeded, Doug Bernstein (l), the new owner of the property, chatted with Westporter Susan Malloy whose parents Aaron and Clara Rabinowitz owned the house and property her family referred to as “Robin’s Nest” from 1937 to 1973.  Asked today how she felt about seeing her childhood home being demolished, Malloy said she thought a lot about it Sunday night and came to the realization that it was in poor condition, could not be renovated and decided to go there this morning to say goodbye. “I made my peace with the fact that it is being demolished” she added, “even though I cannot get used to those machines ripping into a house.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Story and photo by Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com
