New Haven Alien in New York

There's a fun article in the The New York Observer today entitled "The Yaliens Among Us".

Specifically targeting undergraduate alumni/-ae now living in NYC, it discusses the various, specific attributes of the Yalie.  One of these attributes is how "exceptionally nice" Yalies tend to be.  I heartily agree, though from a slightly different vantage point as a graduate school alumnus.  My fellow graduate students were, indeed, nice (more remarkable, given they were proto-architects), but I have to say that my experience with undergraduates was almost universally agreeable.  I TA'd many, and I have to say it was a lot of fun.

Boola boola!

[P.S.  This picture looks like it was taken from the roof terrace of the School of Architecture...how appropriate!]
