Right forum? Didn't see an accoustic panel/curtain section

I have a 72"x72" window right in my first reflection zone and it also brings in a lot of outside noise. Cars, kids, usual.

What are my options with curtains?
I found one site had curtains with a decibel rating of 20. Seems legit although $300 starting price for a window much smaller than mine I'm sure will add up quickly. If that's what I need no biggie.

I was hoping others would comment.

The one thing I would add is that sound creeps through any weak spot. Sound blocking fabric is seriously compromised if you leave the edges open. I would use a roman shade design with magnetic rubber sewn into the edges to get a tight block of light and sound.

Sounds good, working on getting a roman quote from them. Will have to check out a magnet system.

Is it possible to fill in the window space with fiberglass and then cover the entire thing? Perhaps do the same design on the opposite wall?

Asymmetric walls flanking your speakers creates imaging issues due to one sound being perceptibly louder than the other. I have had numerous apartments where this would drive me crazy.
