If you’re interested in visiting New Haven or learning more about Yale University, take a look at my guide to New Haven, Connecticut. Since the Young’s wanted to live in the house full time, they renovated and winterized the house in the late 1890s but never did any major renovations on the house again.

BROADWAY TONIGHT?! 🎭⁠ ⁠ March 12th is when the world of NYC theatre shut down. SIX the Musical was only hours away from its opening night. Many shows have since closed without ever getting their closing performance. ⁠ ⁠ ✨ BUT TONIGHT ✨ Tonight, we'll get to enjoy a bit of Broadway's finest from the comfort of our couches. ⁠ ⁠ One Night Only: The Best of Broadway will be airing on NBC at 8 PM EST to honor and celebrate the world of performing arts. We'll get to see some of our favorite currently running shows perform, as well as some that are still planning to come back when the theater doors open back up next year.⁠ ⁠ And our host for the evening, you ask? The creator of the Broadway musical Mean Girls, Tina Fey. She might have also created a movie by the same name - maybe you've heard of it? 😆⁠ ⁠ I'm so grateful the Broadway community has been able to find a way to safely come together and create art again for us to enjoy. I don't know about you, but I CAN'T WAIT FOR TONIGHT!⁠ ⁠ Are there any performances you're hoping to see this evening?⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #imagesofnyc #whatisawinnyc #nycig #ig_nyc #explorenyc #visitnewyork #midtownmanhattan #newyorkphotos #newyorkloversnyl #visitnyc #mydestinationguide #newyorkstateofmind #thepurposelylost #newyorkworld #explorenewyork #newyorkviews #nycvibes #nybynewyorkers #nycadventures #lifeinnyc #nycphoto #newyorkcitylife #loveyourcity #lovetheview #thingstodoinnyc #cityshots #touristinmyowncity #nyc_highlights #nyctheatre #lovenewyork
