It was beautiful in New Haven this weekend so we took a break from Tuckerman-related things and went on a run past some of our favorite spots. Since the fall foliage is near its peak, we also snapped a few photos along the way.
The first four were taken on the grounds of the Eli Whitney Museum, named for the famous inventor and Yale graduate who played a role in early textile production through his invention of the cotton gin. The museum sits on the grounds of the innovative arms factory he built in 1798, which was the first to create standard, interchangeable parts. While the bridge is a reconstruction, the coal storage shed is the original building and dates back to 1803.
The last two photos were taken from the top of East Rock park--the first looking out over New Haven, and the second looking up towards Hamden with a nice view of Lake Whitney and the Mill River.
