LINKING THE NEIGHBORHOOD

From York Street To
Sherman Avenue
 

 

This picture was taken at the opening of the Yale School of Art in Holcomb T. Green Hall at 1156 Chapel Street in the Chapel West Special Services District in December 2000. This signature building, the former home of the Jewish Community Center, was designed by Louis Kahn the famous Yale professor of architecture. The Chapel West District was very happy to see street life revived by the purchase, renovation and reuse by Yale University of this long vacant structure.

Some of the dignitaries attending the opening are pictured here: Richard Benson, Vincent Romei, D. J. Ornato, Arnie Lehrer, Peter Kusterer Cindy von Beren, Barbara Lamb, John Maturo, Fred Joseph, Shella Levrant de Bretteville, Evelyn Schatz, Richard Lytle, Anthony Rescigno, Scott Healy, Dave Duda.
