1879 Bird's Eye Map of Newhallville
There is a buzz in Newhallville regarding the historic designation of our neighborhood.  Some of the feedback has been positive, some negative.

Here are some  a visual reminders of how vibrant the Dixwell and Newhallville communities once were.  Commerce and enterprise were representative of our neighborhood.  Perhaps we need to see where we were in order to determine where we are going.

125-31 Dixwell Avenue c. 1925

A big thank you to Colin M. Caplan, local author and historian for use of the pictures depicted on the blog.  His amazing collection in its entirety, can be viewed here.
