The Frog Hollow NRZ (Neighborhood Revitalization Zone) aims to revitalize Frog Hollow through the collaborative involvement of residents, businesses and government to find a common vision for the neighborhood.

Our Neighborhood

Frog Hollow was originally developed as three- and six-family buildings to house the immigrant population who worked in the factories which lined Capitol Avenue. Today, this historic architecture creates a neighborhood with a row house walk-up feel, including the historic row houses on Columbia Street and Park Terrace. It also includes Park Street, Connecticut’s premier Latino Main Street, Pope Park (an Olmsted designed park), and a small commercial district along Capitol Avenue.
