A photojournal of the Wooster Square neighborhood in New Haven, Connecticut. And, occasionally a photo of New Haven, of course, of course.

So Long, Wooster Square

I've been lax in posting because of starting my new position and getting ready to move to the parsonage.  I've loved living in New Haven and I am quite sad to leave.  Perhaps I'll be able to return some day.  This is a shot from the Green of several of the buildings downtown. 

I'm moving to Wilton, Connecticut which is a lovely suburban community in lower Fairfield County.  I'm thinking that after I'm settled I'll begin a Wilton Daily Photo for you all to see Wilton.  It's a town with lots of colonial history, Weir Farm, and artists community, farms and lots of open space. 

Until we meet again!

No Sunday Services..

I found this sign at the side door of St. Paul and St. James on the corner of Chapel Street and Olive Street in Wooster Square.  Most churches, as was mine, canceled services on Sunday for the lady of the waterway, Irene.

A Fresh Opportunity

In between the leaves of the fallen tree I saw a fresh opportunity for the very tame squirrels of Wooster Square.  Lots of acorns on the ground also.

The center of Hurricane Irene hit the Connecticut coast about 8 am this morning.  The winds were pretty boisterous at around 70 miles per hour.  Lots of coastal flooding and downed trees.  I didn't lose power nor did my neighborhood but apparently around 700,000 folks are without in CT.  Wooster Square park lost a lot of limbs from the trees and one that couldn't withstand the gusts of wind. 
I hope that Jack from Hartford Daily Photo and Bruce from The Quiet Corner of Connecticut are ok.

Lighthouse Point Park

Last Sunday afternoon some kids were having fun under the big sprinklers at Lighthouse Point Park in New Haven.  It's a great park with a carousel, sandy beaches, views of New Haven Harbor and Long Island Sound and of course, a lighthouse.

A Few Days Off....

Hi Everyone!  I'm taking a few days off because I just started a new position as Interim Senior Pastor at Wilton Congregational Church.  I'll be back with updates for Wooster Square.
