Fill The Spot: 36 Golden Street

Former home of Maxwell Restaurant Equipment now an art showcase

A couple of years ago, this property near the rear of Hygienic Art was occupied by Maxwell Restaurant Equipment. The storefront welcomed people to peruse the offerings for at-home appliances, but it also specializes in larger equipment for schools, hotels, and restaurants. According to the business's website, the kitchens of New London High School, Alliance For Living, Beechwood Manor, and several New London religious institutions have been supplied with Maxwell equipment.

Although the website still lists 36 Golden Street as its address, Maxwell Restaurant Equipment has been gone from this location for some time now ( updated listings put them at 300 Elm Street). A Coldwell Banker realty sign invites bankers directly below a "Welcome to New London" sign. The prominent display windows are now being used to display artwork available for purchase at CONNFetti.

A sign in the window offers the 850 square foot space for rent at $800 a month. Coldwell Banker calculates a slightly cheaper mortgage based on the asking price of $206,900 for the building. In addition to a small side lot, a lot of downtown visitors will see this property since it is abutting one of the municipal parking lots off Eugene O'Neill Drive.

I'd like to see a bull dozer come in and start with this building and continue all the way to the train station !

How about a dog pound? The amount of money the city spends on euthanizing animals and cremating them could pay for a pound. I know it sounds silly to some of you but I would rather house the grateful creatures then the ungrateful ones.
