Most of the places we feature have a grim outlook on their future... but here is a nice surprise for once. Take a look at this story released by WTNH on the bright new future of Powder Ridge. Also be sure to check out our old story on the once "abandoned" Power Ridge...

2013: Nearly two years after first posting about Pratt & Whitney in North Haven we have returned again. A lot has changed here... The building is currently undergoing demolition so we set out with our cameras to catch some last shots of this historic factory. By this time next year the entire property including its grounds will be reduced to rubble to make way for a new industrial park.
2012:This 160 Acre site located in between U.S 5 and Quinnipiac River State Park was once home to Pratt & Whitney. Thousands of people a day would park in the now grass and tree covered lots to go to work. Closing fully just 10 years ago in 2002 nature has made major progress in taking over. The once lush green grass baseball fields now over grown... the basketball courts rusted... The parking lot is still scattered with old fork lifts as if people were coming back to work the next day. A shiny mint condition GMC fire engine still sits 10 years later in the Plants fire garage ready to go. Chemical and oil Garage opened ready for dumping down the long shoots within.
