The Park Street Garage Mystery, Solved



We have always wondered what was inside that mysterious little carport on Park Street. The carport became a minor Hartford celebrity in 2008 after being prominently featured in the horrendous Gangland: Hartford. Boarded up for the past few years, rumors have run wild about what was actually inside the carport.

Theories have included: entrance to an underground cock-fighting arena, Al Terzi's secret regeneration chamber or some sketchy place where junkies go to do drugs.

So what's inside this mystical urban cave? The answer after the jump.

Our journey into the center of the Park Street Carport was highly unsatisfying. Turns out there is nothing interesting at all inside. Just a bunch of brick, dirt and empty Red Stripe bottles. Oh well.


Probably more interesting than the inside of the carport was the broken down old house next door to the carport. Can you see the DirectTV hanging from the porch room? Does that mean the people living there might not have exterior walls, but they probably have the NFL Sunday Ticket? Strange.
