If you want to get more mileage out of those tax dollars, you can now use the Hartford Police Department’s parking lot to conduct your Craigslist transactions.

With a number of those exchanges turning into robberies — and worse –  it might bring peace of mind to buy and sell within shouting distance of the law. There is video surveillance of the lot and the front desk is staffed every hour of every day. Continue reading 'Police Offer Public Use of Lot for Transactions'»

West African Textiles at Trinity

Dozens of cloth pieces adorn the walls, hang from the ceiling, or are folded neatly in display cases in the Widener Gallery at Trinity College. This may sound like a standard stroll through the mall, but the textiles are all from West Africa, on loan from multiple collections.

The items on display are woven, stamped, appliqued, and resist-dyed textiles, made from cotton, rayon, and wool. One tunic is also composed of goat skin and colobus monkey fur.

A man’s smock, from Cameroon, combines woven fiber with human hair. The ceremonial garment would have been worn at funerals for VIPs.

Wrappers and blankets vary from colorful, to subdued, to simply indigo and white.

The It’s a Wrap exhibit hasn’t wrapped up yet– you have until March 14, 2015 to view the textiles in the Austin Arts Center.

On March 5th at 3 p.m. a gallery talk will be held in the Widener Gallery. Continue reading 'West African Textiles at Trinity'»

Storm Info: Feb. 21-22, 2015

By , February 21, 2015 11:47 am

Emergency Shelter

Anyone in need of emergency shelter can call 211.

The following shelters will remain open throughout the storm:  ImmaCare: 560 Park St, (860) 724-4823; McKinney Shelter: 34 Huyshope Ave, (860) 722-6922; South Park Inn: 75 Main St, (860) 724-0071.

Snow Removal

Tenants, property owners, and occupants are responsible for clearing snow and ice within five hours after the storm has ended.

Parking Ban

The parking ban begins at 4 on Saturday afternoon and ends at noon on Sunday.

Mayor Segarra, in a press release issued through spokeswoman Maribel La Luz, says: “Side streets are narrow because of the continuous snow fall we’ve had and our trucks need to be able to pass through. We are [sic] airing on the side of caution. The City will resume its snow clearing efforts after we get through this storm but for now, we’re asking our residents to plan ahead. Please move your cars so we can plow safely.”

Motorists who do not have off street parking could (1) ask to park in driveways belonging to friends and neighbors, or (2) park in any number of lots available during the parking ban.

These lots include those at public schools, along with the following: Morgan Street Garage, 2 Holcomb Street, Keney Park entrance lot at Ridgefield, KDA Center lot at Naugatuck Street, Pope Park Rec Center lot, Metzner Center lot on Franklin Avenue, Colt Park lot at Wawarme Avenue, and the lots in Elizabeth Park.

No time frame has been given for when vehicles will need to be removed from the public lots after the storm, other than “promptly.”

Hartford’s Plan to Make City Attractive for Young People

By , February 18, 2015 7:04 am

As dirt was piled on top of frozen ground, destined to be “broken” for a project that had been declared done before any consultation with the public, and as distraction-upon-distraction was thrown at residents on an evening utterly overloaded with City meetings, a group of young(ish) professionals were told they do not belong here.

Without an inspection being conducted, residents of 68 Scarborough Street received a cease-and-desist order last year because their definition of family does not mesh with that of those living around them. Continue reading 'Hartford’s Plan to Make City Attractive for Young People'»
