Transformers Threaten History
New Haven Independent -

Three years ago United Illuminating moved its high pole-mounted transformer banks so close to Ellen Ryerson and Bonnie Rosenberg’s historic 311 Greene St. building, no painting, scraping, and pointing work could be done without violating federal health and safety rules.

Yet the work must be done on the historic facades of these Wooster Square landmarks, or they’ll deteriorate.

So what’s to be done? Who’s to pay?
