Event Details

Since New Haven was invented 375 years ago, hundreds of thousands of people have lived, worked, studied and visited our City. And some of them have changed the world forever through their inventions. From the first city plan in the U.S. to the pedal bicycle, New Haven has always been fertile ground for innovation!

You are invited to stroll our “avenues of invention” with local historian and author COLIN CAPLAN.


no charge |  203-946-7430

 

Colin Caplan was born and raised in New Haven, where he developed an early appreciation for architecture and history prior to earning a Masters degree in architecture from Tulane University. Caplan has worked with several architecture firms in New Haven, and heads up “Taste of New Haven,” offering culinary and cultural tours that spotlight New Haven's diverse restaurant scene. He has been featured in national television shows and publications.

Caplan is the author of New Haven (Then & Now); A Guide to Historic New Haven CT; 101 Glimpses of New Haven; and Tales from a Connecticut Hamlet, about the Westville section of New Haven. More information is available at www.magrissoforte.com.
