There is a company up in your neck of the woods -- Hartford, I believe -- that makes interior storm windows.
- Not sure why you would want airflow around your windows -- typically you want a tight seal around your windows so you do not lose your heat to the outdoors.
- These interior storms are friction-fit, so very easy to install (DIY) and they are removable if you want to take them out.
- They will not only cut down on the noise but will save you energy as well.
Check them out at www.stormwindows.com.
