Complaint
of the
Decade

A Central Avenue resident notified our local neighborhood officer that a man had been driving around soliciting her.
She described the man as driving a purple pick- up truck with a green Martian in the passenger seat!
Calling all cars ...
>
Guess what ...
She was right!

The truck was purple and there was indeed a large stuffed toy Martian riding shotgun!
Welcome to Hillside :)


Humor
of the
Hood

There is a new alcoholic beverage on the market.  It is called Bourbon Renewal.
Drink enough of it and the old neighborhood starts to look good.


Wouldn't it be wonderful if the Ice Cream Truck could play more than one tune?


Neighbors keep complaining about the prostitutes hanging around and using the outdoor pay phones a lot ... is that why they are called
"Call Girls" ?

Gaffney Place to have open house on May 7 
Thursday, April 29, 2015
       HILLSIDE HISTORIAN

T
he Waterbury Community Investment Board is opening the doors of the Gaffney Place housing project from 1 to 4 p.m. on May 7.
Those who are interested in buying one of these overhauled homes, or just want to have a look inside one, can take a tour of the buildings, located a block off the City Green.
The project is the result of a partnership between the Harold Webster Smith Foundation, NeighborWorks New Horizons, and Webster Bank. The state kicked in $1 million, too.
In total, the group spent $3 million to buy five aging, rundown houses on Gaffney Place and Central Avenue, and convert them into duplexes for 10 families. Half will be owner occupied.
The houses are listed for $179,000 each. There’s no income limit for buyers or renters, but the buyers must live there. That’s a condition that follows the deed, even if a house changes hands.
 
In addition to completely restoring exteriors and rehabilitating interiors on four houses, one home is completely new, having been rebuilt in the exact location as an original dwelling which had become unsafe and unstable.  The infrastructure of the street has been completely replaced by utility and city entities and the roadway redesigned and brick paved.

The "Big Balls" are still waiting the test of time.

 

HO DOWN NETS SIX!
Thursday, April 2, 2015
 HILLSIDE HISTORIAN

Police carried out an undercover "sweep" Thursday that resulted in the arrest of 6  "Ho's" in the Hillside Historic District of Waterbury.
The Vice and Intelligence Division, with its numbers reportedly reduced to a single handful of officers, had one of its officers act as a “John” as they drove around the Hillside neighborhood, which for years has been known as "the loop" and an active stomping ground of both hookers and "johns" alike.
The prostitutes arrested had openly flagged down the undercover officer, then offered to have sex with him for small amounts of money, according to police statements.
This area has been plagued by a continuing presence of brash prostitutes, many of whom participate regularly in the revolving door reality of our judicial system.
Laura Selim, 34, and Rosalie Rajoelisolo, 41, were arrested just last August (2014) in a "sweep" that netted 14 prostitutes. Rajoelisolo was also arrested during a "sweep" last July (2014).
According to information of area residents, Selim and Rajoelisolo have been working the area openly and unrestricted for many years.
Kayla Silvernail, was charged with the crime in January (2014), had been released from jail and was picked up again by police on Thursday afternoon.
Melanie Heuberger was out of prison on a special parole through the Waterbury parole office... Oops!
Other names area residents are putting on the agenda plate of the WPD are: Kim Bowers, Sonia Hernandez, Kelley Roman, Iris Watts and Mr. Paris Albino to name just a few at the very top of the most recent list.
Residents were smiles and giggles over an old tactic restored to use by the WPD of arresting the "Ho's" late on the night before a holiday weekend.  Courts are not open for days and they get to feast, for several days (until the  courts reopen) on local jailhouse cuisine ... which ain't gourmet :)
The following six unhappy looking "ladies" were arrested during Thursday's "sweep":

ASHLIE CANNON, 27,
of 156 Orange St., prostitution.
 

MELANIE HEUBERGER, 39, of 133 Pine St., prostitution.
STEPHANY MARCONE
or Martone,
 28,
of 294 Willow St., second floor, prostitution.

ROSALIE RAJOELISOLO, 41, of 161 Prospect St., prostitution.
LAURA SELIM, 34,
of 157 Orange St., prostitution.
 

KAYLA SILVERNAIL, 21, of 88 Angel Drive, three counts second- degree failure to appear, prostitution.



 

124-126 CENTRAL AVE
ENGULFED IN FLAMES

Sunday, Feb. 28, 2015 - HILLSIDE HISTORIAN
Starting around 5PM, and spreading quickly throughout the dry timbered house,
8 engines responded to the densely populated neighborhood, drawing water from Central, Grove and Hillside to contain the flames which engulfed the 130 year old wood frame structure.
124-126 Central Avenue was b
uilt in 1888 as part of a development of F.B. Rice in the area, being one of a grouping of repeated architectural styles on upper Central Avenue, this well maintained home, owned by Filippakos Petros of Danbury, went up in flames as the sun went down on Saturday night in the Hillside Historic District neighborhood.
  Neighbors watched anxiously as the dry timbers crackled, praying the mayhem would not spread to adjoining structures.
Grove, Central and Hillside Avenues remained closed well into the night as firefighters contained the blaze and knocked down hot spots.
First light Sunday will undoubtedly reveal a very sad sight, but there is no reported loss of life.

 

 

 

 

MAGNIFICENT MANSION SOLD
54 HILLSIDE AVENUE - $180,000


Sunday, April 20, 2014 - HILLSIDE HISTORIAN
One of Hillside's many hidden treasures was up for grabs for some lucky buyer who loves history and grandeur.
Built for Mary Mitchell just before 1880, the landed estate originally consisted of the mansion dwelling and a large carriage house at the North end of the property tickling the street side of Buckingham Street. (article immediately below on carriage house)
The carriage house was demolished some 60+ years ago and the North lot divided off.
This elaborate and comfortable home features a private drive, huge kitchen area with the original fireplace and wainscoting, delicious views to the South overlooking Waterbury and goes relatively unnoticed by the average passerby as it is shrouded in expansive landscaping and mature trees. The above picture was taken in winter when Mother Nature was intentionally a bit naked.
This has always been a private home with very few owners.
The new owner can live like a King ... or Queen ... or both in this one of a kind family home with its historical ambience.
