The (Past) View from Your Hood

Anonymous submission, March 11.

"So, I don’t have a picture, but I have a memory from [redacted] years ago. The floor-to-ceiling windows of Pfizer’s Chem Eng lab in Groton, CT look out on the mouth of the Thames River. The Northrop Grumman shipyard is just a mile or so up river and the Naval Submarine Base New London is another couple of miles. Every few days you could watch a nuclear sub going out or coming back from a patrol. Silent black shape with a few sailors standing on deck."

  1. The picture (or the connection between the picture and the blog) seems to be broken - it isn't showing up.

    I liked when my family went to Mystic because we got to cross all of the big bridges (one of which was the New London one) on I-95 through CT.

    1. There it is. Sorry.

    2. No, I had to repost it. Blogger doesn't love links, for some reason.

  2. I've taken the ferry across from Port Jefferson a few times, and passing the General Dynamics/NorthropGrumman yard was always a high point of the trip.
