|After years of reading and hearing the constant reminders about New Britain's biggest and worst eye sore, the City of New Britain is now in possession of owning the "Berkowitz Building" located at 608 Main Street adjacent to Broad Street a.k.a. "Little Poland", a thriving street that offers a multitude of polish cuisine.
The Berkowitz Building which offers 24,552 square feet and built in 1915 was heavily fined with building code violations under Mayor Tim O'Brien's blight ordinance. The owner of the building decided it was in his best interest to sell the building the the city. Sales price was $22,000.
The city will now offer the building to interested developers interested in restoring the building. The Mayor's office will be overseeing the project. Please call 860-826-3303 for more information.
