Crown Street Tours

Excerpt from the Introduction to Crown Street Tours:

“How to get to know Crown Street?  Nine blocks long, this New Haven street offers an impressive array of disparate conditions.  Quietly residential at one end, nearly abandoned at the other, and bustling wiht various forms of commerce and nightlife in between, Crown Street is one of New Haven’s most cosmopolitan streets.  For this research project, we devised a collection of scripted tours that might encoruage visitors to interact with the street in several unusual manners.  Rather than simply visiting Crown Street to buy pizza, go to a club, or park the car, these tours call upon their participants to closely examine their environment on its own terms.”
