This collection of photographs was updated in the summer of 2013 and now contains more than three dozen full color and black & white photographs of the Fort Trumbull neighborhood in New London Connecticut several years after the City won its Eminent Domain case against the citizens forcing them to leave their homes. Some of these homes had been held by their residents for generations. "Progress", "New Development", and promises of a better New London gave way to abandoned buildings and dashed dreams.

What was once a busy but quiet corner of New London, Connecticut complete with homes, families, and businesses, as of today in May, 2013, stands completely empty. It's not even so much a ghost town anymore, all of the buildings are gone and the only thing standing is Fort Trumbull to look on forlornly and mourn the passing of community that once surrounded it.
