I recorded this as I was hoping an approaching storm would be more interesting. It was recorded from my window about 25 feet above the street. It gives a good sense of what my neighborhood generally sounds like (rather noisy). Since it is a long recording, here are various points of interest:
00:06:22-motorcycle pass
00:08:40-light rain
00:14:08-large truck
00:18:03-motorcycle
00:24:46-large truck
00:26:30-fire engine
00:31:19-air brakes
00:35:50-car starts
00:42:09-loud car
00:45:12-loud car
00:48:46-bus
01:06:04-truck
01:11:27-car
01:27:23-truck
1:29:50-weedeater
Recorded with a stereo pair of AT4021 mics into an Apogee Duet and edited with Record.

    yeah, a bit too long. If you were able to slice it up into parts that might make for a more accessible download. But overall it's a great recording. Thanks for taking that much time to record/upload!

    Brilliant, thanks! The length was one of the key points that attracted me to this.
