Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont is expected to sign into law changes to a decades-old statute that could bring new business to the state’s manufacturing past.
Waterbury is known for its giant cross on the hill. (That’s Holy Land USA).
But in the river valley just below the iconic cross are acres of blighted old factory buildings, relics of the brass city’s hayday. They run along the Mad River. The buildings are covered in graffiti. Windows are shattered.
