In 1995 Rhode Island resident Paul Colitzzo was confronted with
amazing mystery that he tried to solve for two
over decades but never found a rational explanation
Paul was often in the city of Newport, from which his house
45 minutes drive: yachtsmen races were regularly held there. Coming to
Newport, the man, as usual, went to breakfast in
cafe restaurant Newport Creamery: Paul had a weakness for donuts,
waffles, hot chocolate, strawberry desserts and other tasty
… At that time he was in Newport with his friend Kenny.
Hungry, the men decided to visit Paul’s favorite restaurant. By
on Americas Cup Avenue, they got to Shell’s gas station, a little
дальше которой находилась их цель, – и тут Byл вдруг увидел проход
to a parallel street that he had never noticed before …
There was a part of the embankment and sailboats sailing on the water, –
вспоминает Byл. – And so beautiful it all looked like we came out of
cars and headed there. It looked like we were in business
parts of the city where I had never looked before. I still remember
this busy street and even a bus stop on it …
By пути Byлу и Кенни встретилось несколько ресторанов, в том
including one under the sign of Newport Creamery (it was, of course,
another institution of the same company). Friends did not fail to go there and
They found that the food there is wonderful, as well as the view to the ocean:
happy people strolled along the promenade, yachts slid in the waves
under white sails. Идиллия, да и только!.. Byлу так понравилось
this is the place that he decided to definitely come here with his wife.
After returning home, he told his wife about his impressions and
He promised that on Saturday he would take her to a wonderful place. Really,
three days later, the couple Kolitszo went to Newport.
As they should, they turned onto the Americas Cup Avenue, drove to
refueling … however, behind it there was no passage to the busy and
beautiful street. Несколько раз растерянный и недоумевающий Byл
drove past this place, then began to travel around, however, and
could not find anything.
There, where quite recently there was a magnificent view of the ocean,
there was only a wasteland with a football field and houses stood. Byлчаса
“I stopped all searches later,” he admitted.
Впрочем, эта история показалась Byлу до того странной, что еще
not one year, he tried to find a mysterious street with a restaurant
Newport Creamery. The man walked several times
the intended area, hoping to be in the “business center with
embankment “- all to no avail. However, it was not a hallucination!
Наконец Byл, не выдержав, обратился к Кенни, и его друг подтвердил
everything that happened to them on the “disappeared street”. Up to the
small details! ..
In 2000 Byл обзавелся компьютером и стал выяснять все адреса,
on which are located cafe-restaurants of Newport Creamery.
The place where he regularly had breakfast was quickly found, however
there was simply no other similar restaurant in Newport …
Спустя еще 16 лет Byлу довелось случайно пообщаться с одним
a city official who knew Newport well. That one
stated that there are not and there were not two Newport Creamery cafes.
Из всего этого Byл сделал вывод, что много лет назад вместе со
his friend he temporarily moved to another, parallel,
Having come to this thought, I tried to break through there many times,
разъезжая по Americas Cup Avenue, – не скрывая, говорит Byл. –
However, a fantastic passage leading to another world is very similar
on ours, so more I never opened …
