by Paul Bass | May 26, 2015 7:42 am | Comments (8)

Paul Bass Photo Encourage neighbors to grab shovels to help an elderly Quinnipiac Avenue neighbor avoid a fine. Send a mega-snowblower to hit neighborhood streets, not just downtown. And have people move their cars first to the even side of the street—then maybe the odd.

City Hits Liquor Limit; Patil Wins, Patel Loses

by Aliyya Swaby | May 22, 2015 1:09 pm | Comments (20)

Aliyya Swaby Photo The state rejected Roshan Patel’s efforts to sell booze in the Annex neighborhood, not because of all the complaints from neighbors—but because New Haven had reached a little-known state-calculated limit for the number of liquor stores allowed within its boundaries.

Meanwhile, across town, a Westville Village landlord who beat Patel out for the last permit (by one day) has since seen her own plans dashed, and may end up opening her liquor store instead ... over in the Annex.

“For me, the concert does have this feel of culminating,” said clarinetist David Perry of the Second Movement Series. “I’ve had this experience with a number of different pieces, of ‘how on earth did this person know that everybody was going to connect to that moment in this piece of music?’ and I think that’s what we’re going for on this one. Having had that experience of seeing the things that you can’t see, and also the things that you know exist that you can’t see. It’s like a pain up close ... but you pull back and see all this beauty.
