"City Connections"

New Haven is a city full of connections. There is a full wall Cityscape dollhouse for children to work at which includes miniature houses, a green grocer, a fire station and trains. The museum's pint-sized post office is a space where connections are made and children can pick up and mail their letters and postcards from the post office boxes. Uniforms, post office satchels and collections of mail offer the opportunity to be a mail carrier. The envelope-shaped table is a spot for making stationary and writing missives. A park bench, set under a mural of beautifully painted trees and view of the library from the New Haven Green, provides a restful moment.
