A photojournal of the Wooster Square neighborhood in New Haven, Connecticut. And, occasionally a photo of New Haven, of course, of course.

All Aboard Says Handsome Dan

The next few days I'll be posting some photos around Yale New Haven Hospital, Yale Medical School and the Yale University Art Gallery.  There are several shuttle buses that transport students, professors and the like to and from the different campuses.  Pictured here is Handsome Dan the Yale Mascot.  To read about the succession of Handsome Dan's click 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.


  1. The idea of the shuttles is brilliant, even more so with the mascot!

  2. Who knows, Dan might know more than all the scholarly humans on the bus.
