The timing of this article is not a mistake or a coincidence. These places were left abandoned long before the COVID-19 crisis. The fact is there will be more to follow and it's not a problem that is exclusive to Danbury, CT.

I seek these places out and try and imagine the families waiting for a table, a couple out for a night of dancing or a line of cars at the drive up window. This is Zombie Danbury.........
