Mystic River Press: Two new visitors to Mystic [Connecticut] were bicycling down Isham Street last week, and as the man and woman rounded the corner to Bay Street, the woman came to a stop.
“Such a beautiful harbor!” she exclaimed as she found herself face-to-face with the S/V Mystic and smaller sailboats dotting the Mystic River.
The river is indeed beautiful at this time of year, but a beast lurks just upriver from this postcard perfect scene. A crumbling barge has been slowly deteriorating for the past 50 years at water’s edge behind Twister’s Ice Cream Shop (formerly Kitchen Little) on Greenmanville Avenue.
