This property was originally identified for an easement (or “partial take”) only to accommodate the widening of the roadway.
After the rights-of-way agreement in connection with the roadway project failed to receive approval, the City and the DOT transferred the rights-of-way to the railway bridge project for construction staging instead. At that time, this property was also included for a “total take” and added to plans to put in a parking lot for the railroad station.
218 East Avenue, at the corner of Fort Point Street, and directly across the street from the southbound platform of the East Norwalk Metro North station was the location of a thriving local business, El Sabor Latino. This panaderia was a popular morning stop for breakfast.
