From May 17-May 27th sections of Park Street will be closed to motorists from 6 p.m. until 6 a.m. This closure includes on-street parking. The City of Hartford says that residents will need to figure out off-street overnight parking during this time.
This will impact Park Street between Main Street and Park Terrace.
Sidewalks will remain accessible.
Remember how last month Broad Street was all about equestrians?
We can’t help but think that a pedestrian with some markers noticed the sidewalk-closure-without-warning on the west side of Broad Street near Capitol Avenue, not so far from where this sign was spotted.

Poor parking skills are honed over time. This driver has gotten a head start. Let’s look at all the violations:
- Facing the wrong direction on a one-way street
- Parking on the side where no parking is allowed
- Parallel parking is the norm. This driver tried angle parking, backwards no less
- Not even remotely near the curb
- Possible interfering with driveway access
The future promises to be exciting!

A friend had suggested a Sunday morning meet-up at the downtown New Britain CTFastrak terminal for a leisurely bike ride to Bristol’s Firefly Hollow Brewing Company. I rode my bike to the Sigourney Street Fastrak station in Asylum Hill to catch a free ride to Hard Hittin’ New Britain. A woman in a bright vest offered a decal and advice about the best entrance to use when loading a bike on the bus. (Tip: there’s a bike pictogram by the rearmost door—go in that way) Continue reading 'CTFastrak: A Seat-of-the-Pants Review'»
