By studying the buildings around the New Haven Green, the cityís purpose in the classic sense can be established. New Havenís center reflects the Greek emphasis concerning religion, government and the market place. The architecture surrounding the Green is a facade which attempts to make real our dreams of creating a civic place. It is a place of pride where our accomplishments are evidenced in stone, glass, etc. At New Havenís center, the past is still present in its structures, it still serves our many needs and is a source of civic pride.
The unit provides information for a slide presentation of the cityís buildings around the Green. The slide set is available at the Teachers Institute office.
