40 minutes speed walking around Yale, we didn't get to see everything but what we saw was so superb. If you are anywhere near the area, definitely make time to visit. I was like a little kid in Hogwarts with all the history and architecture. If you are hungry, try Yorkside pizza, so much history there, fast and delicious. Don't go at night, we heard it's not too safe. Loved it loved it loved at Yale.

Please, it doesn’t matter if they are a house sparrow do not rest on birds. They are cute, NON “invasive”, and very friendly and do not deserve to be tested on. People are not birds therefore making your tax dollars wasted on funding these cruel experiments.
