    1. I am responding below about Yale, but wanted to say I have been in to do genealogical work at the Historical Society... Extremely helpful, wonderful building, and very nice collection!

  2. Am I the only, who still feels the pull?

  3. Hillhouse Avenue - for both Dickens and Twain, "the most beautiful street in America."

  4. Thank you for these photos! It's been years since I've wandered around Yale, and I don't remember this much beauty. I love it that you give me a chance travel from the comfort of my own home. :-)

  5. Yale, quite simply, is amazing. They offer such a bounty of events, tours, concerts, theater etc at very reasonable cost. Amy Meyers at the Yale Center for British Art, and Jock Reynolds at the Yale Art Gallery have to be two of the most gracious and hospitable museum directors I have ever encountered. World class collections. Friendly staff. Beautiful setting. Love it. If you are not able to make it to New Haven, look for the Yale YouTube chanel and there is a host of free on line courses and lectures. Can't say enough good about the place. It is my go to place when I need to feel there is still civility in this world. There is an incredible show on at the moment at YCBA. Enlightened Princesses: Caroline, Augusta, Charlotte, and the shaping of the modern world. Over eighty works on loan from Queen Elizabeth. A facinating look in to the Georgians. The show is headed to Kensington Palace next.
