Pardee-Morris House - A Morris Cove Historic Treasure It was a wonderful day for the Pardee-Morris House in Morris Cove New Haven CT.  The public open house which was scheduled for September 27th was rained out and rescheduled for today.  Since 2000 the Pardee-Morris House has been closed to the public due to lack of funds but restoration work has been ongoing for the past few months so it could be opened again on a limited basis. Due to a some prior commitments already made for today, I was unable to get to the open house until about 3:45 giving me only a few minutes to get inside to take some photos of the interior.  There is still quite a bit of work to be done to fully restore this historic treasure but what a sense of history you could feel walking through the areas of the Pardee-M...

Today I had to meet a HVAC contractor to service the furnace and air conditioning at a condo that clients of mine recently rented in the Harbour Landing complex in New Haven.  This complex is located in an area of New Haven that I travel through frequenly. Yet today as I drove down Long Wharf Drive whcih runs between 1-95 and the New Haven Harbor I noticed for the first time numerous monuments that were placed along the harbourfront.  It's funny how you drive by an area numerous times and don't take notice of the surroundings.  There was something that drew me to this spot today so I parked my car in the parking lot and walked across the street to see what these monuments were. At the west end of Long Wharf Park is a black granite V for the Vietnam Memorial listing the names in honor of...

We have definitely hit the dog days of summer over the past couple of weeks with the high temperatures and humidity we've been experiencing along the Southern Connecticut shoreline.The cool ocean breezes that flow through the neighborhood of Morris Cove in New Haven CT has helped to lessen that heat and humidity to a bit lesser degree.This evening my husband and I took my granddaughter to Lighthouse Point Park so we could watch the beatiful sunset this evening and take in the sights of a few boaters and jet skiers near the boat ramp.There is nothing more serene and peaceful than watching a beautiful sunset on a warm summer evening.Boaters cruise along the New Haven Harbor with a beautiful backdrop and calm waters.The park closes at sunset and after a day of fun in the sun jet skiing it'...

Understanding Your Credit Score You've just applied for a mortgage or auto loan and your lender comes back with a three-digit number that summarizes your credit worthiness and you have no clue what that number really means. What is the difference between a 540, a 670 and a 780? If you're not familiar with credit scores then these seemingly random numbers can make it difficult to determine where you stand. And in today's difficult economic environment, you need every point you can get. In this article we're going to find out exactly what these numbers mean to lenders - and to you.  *Range above based on the FICO credit score, which is used by most lenders. Outstanding: 800+If your credit score is over 800 then you're pretty much the best of the best as far as the lending and insurance wo...

On Friday afternoon, we were hit with a tremendously powerful thunderstorm all across the state of Connecticut.  There were many areas of the state that were heavily damaged from the heavy winds and torrential downpours. Power lines went down, people and businesses lost power. trees fell into homes and there were many areas that were heavily flooded. In its aftermath, the sun broke through and I just happened to look out my window and saw a glow in the sky and grabbed my camera to take these photos..  Mother Nature may have dealt us a heavy blow for a few hours but in her mysterious way opened up the sky to this vision of beauty. **************************************************************************************** Written and Posted by: Donna Bigda - REALTOR® RE/MAX Alliance - Branfo...
