City Democrats and thousands of other residents and visitors turned out for”Little Poland” Day in New Britain, a new street festival celebrating Polish business and culture on Broad Street, which is the heart of the Polish-American community in the city.
According to organizers, New Britain has the largest Polish population of any city in Connecticut. The Broad Street area, starting near St, Mary’s Church and ending at Pulaski Park at Broad and Burritt streets, is affectionately referred to as “Little Poland”, the vibrant neighborhood home to a large number of Polish businesses and families since 1890. In recent years, the Polish community has been credited with revitalizing the area both culturally and economically.
“Within the span of a few blocks, the Polish District boasts its own contracted U.S. Post office, a Polish Mall, both national and regional banks, real estate agents, accountants, several travel agencies, a dance school, European day spas, hair salons, restaurants, delis, European cafes, grocery stores, jewelers, three Polish language newspapers, a tanning salon, a television station, and law firms that offers legal consultations entirely in Polish,” states Atty. Adrian Baron, a leader of the Polonia Business Association.
New Britain Democrats congratulate the Polonia Business Association for organizing “Little Poland Day” in New Britain.
