Maritime park is where they were, with million gallon petroleum tanks on the shore line.
My dad was an insurance inspector for those tanks (Hartford) and the managers would let my dad (and me) fish on the docks. They were massive for unloading ships.
My job as a kid , was to climb down the side and retrieve the fish. There was a city of homeless people living under there and I was afraid they were going to get me. I believe they were the cause of the docks burning down.
This was in the early sixties. I was 10.
