Someone recently commented that when he reads my Tweets, he wonders where I live. Here are photos taken within a few blocks of my place, showing the vibrant Parkville neighborhood. I say “vibrant” because I think it’s actually in the city charter that whenever the word “Parkville” is used, “vibrant” must legally be in the same sentence.
The Parkville Community School houses the Dwight Branch of the Hartford Public Library.
Brazil Grill Churrascaria & Pizza is located at 1996 Park Street.
Hiep Phat is one of a few Asian markets in this area. There is also a C-Town and several bodegas.
The photos directly above and below were taken in the same market.
O’Camelo is a Portuguese restaurant. Flan and chocolate mousse, anyone?
Abrantes Bakery has Portuguese and Italian pastries and breads. There are a few tables inside.
Many of the bakeries and restaurants had nativity scenes set up.
