Readers may remember that the Shalom House, the Jewish home for the cognitively disabled in Wallingford, closed its doors this past January and the house was put up for sale. Unfortunately, the building had been modified over the years in a somewhat institutional fashion, with odd additions and the upstairs cut up into many tiny rooms, some with linoleum floors.
It didn’t sell.
Instead, it’s become a rental house, and the neighborhood gossip is that the residents are feisty bunch of eight college-age girls. New modifications to the house apparently include the addition of a stripper pole, which has been getting its fair share of activity, to the enthusiasm of guests, audible from other houses.
Welcome to the neighborhood, ladies. One tip to ensure a long, happy sojourn: leave your cell-phone numbers with the neighbors and encourage them to call you if the noise gets too much, and be gracious when they do. You’d rather they call you than 911, trust us.
Also, you may want to avail yourselves of this Wallingford business that Jenny tipped us off to some time ago:
