Sound Downtown

Someone is turning up the volume on downtown streets.

New restaurants have installed quality outdoor sound systems and are playing recorded music outside their establishments.

Appealing to more senses, the sounds are helping to liven the experience of our downtown.

I agree, though some pedestrians in Maryland Plaza in the CWE are annoyed that they can't hear themselves muttering to themselves any more.

Some people liked it better a few years ago when the only thing you heard downtown was the sound of pigeons going at it.

Sounds of the city are great --- conversation, the sound of people eating and music from various establishments all adds to a nice feel.

But of late I've been in a number of places downtown and elsewhere where I've had to ask the owners to turn down the music because it was nearly impossible to have a conversation with those at the same table. You should not have to scream to have dinner conversation.

Those sounds...sound like Buffalo wings served by waitresses who need to wear more clothing....
