Jon's visit


Check room availability at Hotel Newton. Oops, no vacancies. Days Inn? Check AJAXed NYC subway map (very slow) and best stops for Natural History Musuem (1 or 9 to W. 79th) and Birdland (1, 2, or 3 to Times Sq., then S, then 2 blcks N to 44th) and hotel (1, 2, or 3 to 96th). Sunday night at Birdland is Chico O'Farrill Big Band, led by Arturo O'Farrill. See review in New York Sun.






Bonita (a bit cheaper, but good)

Back in New Haven ...

Check out Info New Haven.

Now that Kahn Building is restored and reopened, need to visit the Yale Art Gallery (T-Sa, 10-5). Also, Criterion Theater, Center for British Art (current exhibit: Howard Hodgkin), Peabody Museum, worth visiting.

Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station worth visiting? No special events on top. Some reports published on their web site. Receive soil samples for pH analysis. Not sure what else they do. Open 8:30-4:30 M-F, but closed Mon., Feb. 12th, for Lincoln's BD.
