New Haven Notables

This is Willowbee, a contributor to
Welcome to #Nhv!  If you'd like to know more about some of the excellent public art available in town, we'd like you to be aware of Chapel Street West's "New Haven Notables" project.
These are workers.  Great construction footage!
Downtown throughout various locations (check the map above with embedded photographs) you'll find that there are many banners consisting of people who are considered noteworthy.  You'll find folks like A.C. Gilbert, who designed toy play kits for kids.  You'll find others such as Meryl Streep and Paul Giamatti, both popular on screen.  And you'll see others like singer Karen Carpenter and the doo wop group The Five Satins.  You'll even find Chad Dawson, a notable boxer.

You can expect to see interesting photography and announcements to additions on the Vimeo.Com/Nhv channel here on Nhv.Org; This site aggregates news content from social media, as well as it produces some original content with our trusty intern, Willowbee.  For more great maps, try NhvMaps.  You can hope to get more information on how to produce your own customizable Google maps here on Nhv as we announce meet-ups to learn how to better use Google products.
