Michael Angelis is a great painter.  He's the guy DiMeo needs, to honor every construction project
properly with a huge oil painting.  Imagine if .1% of every project went towards an oil rendition of the zone in its initial construction phases?

My personal favorite part of the landmark painting seen in the particular image of this post?  The tunnel that begins over from where the main entrance of the Coliseum used to be, travels under the building and over to actually where the Omni Hotel is.  We used to go in there and find secret entrances into the Chapel Square Mall, where we would skateboard the halls late at night.  We got to be friends with the guard.  His name was Oscar.  He didn't give a damn.

Pop Quiz New Haven!
What's the building that is in the location seen on the flyer?

The winner gets a big ole' stack of flyers from Breckfess Mike, as well as a half dozen first-edition NHV.Org stickers.

Bonus Question to those participating (you can guess):  Where do you think Mike's studio was at the time?
