New Haven FIRSTS: exploring local inventions with Colin Caplan
Monday, February 25, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM
Since New Haven was invented 375 years ago, hundreds of thousands of people have lived, worked, studied and visited our City. And some of them have changed the world forever through their inventions. From the first city plan in the U.S. to the pedal bicycle, New Haven has always been fertile ground for innovation!
You are invited to stroll our “avenues of invention” with local historian and author COLIN CAPLAN.

Caplan has worked with several architecture firms in New Haven, and heads up “Taste of New Haven,” offering culinary and cultural tours that spotlight New Haven's diverse restaurant scene. He has been featured in national television shows and publications.
