New Haven Fave: Wall Street

Wall Street Like Lewis & Clark, I think Yale suckered me in with her good looks.  All of Old Campus is stunning, but I never get tired of walking down Wall St.  Sometimes I will purposely zig-zag my way through that area, just to marvel at how beautiful and old and dignified everything is.  There’s McDougal Hall of Graduate Studies, where I have spent many an hour studying, the undergraduate dining hall, which looks like something straight out of Harry Potter, and Sterling Memorial Library, a place that is so grand on the outside that I will often just sit in the courtyard, before remembering that inside is even more splendid.  And from Wall Street, you have access to them all, making it #3 on my list of New Haven Faves.  

Here’s a few more special spots:

Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library - bibliophile's paradise, and includes a Da Vinci Code-like room for the rarest of books

Women's Table - shows the number of female students at Yale since 1701.  The first year without a 0 next to it is 1873.
