here. There have been 17 all together since 1889. Read about the first Handsome Dan here. Every time that I see a shuttle in Wooster Square I have to laugh when I see Handsome Dan peering out with all of the intelligentsia aboard.

You may remember my Good Friday post from April 2010 about the Jesus Tree in Wooster Square. Click here to have a look. Well to our collective dismay, one morning just one week before this year's Cherry Blossom Festival we all were out walking our dogs and the City of New Haven Public Works had cut off the right arm of the Jesus Tree. It's terrible. Really.

What a coinky-dink, she looks a lot like me.
People come from all over to photograph Hughes Place and Wooster Square.
It's all about the sweet blossoms.
Yesterday on my way to Good Friday Services I was walking through Wooster Square when I ran into my friend and WTNH cameraman, Ken Melech. Next thing I know I was waxing poetically a lament for warmer weather and Cherry Blossoms. Thanks to my brother Richard for snapping these photographs of the newscast yesterday and to Ken for making me look good (I think). Of course, the Cherry Blossoms are the real stars here.
