Wooster Square 2014: The Year in Pictures. Your World Squared!

Out with the Old
In with the New!

Now that the Holidays are almost over and the New Year is upon us, we can look back at the year that was. At the same time, we look to the year ahead with renewed vigor, hope and love.

A time when we can reflect on what was, and plan for what will be. Look back on the good times, bad times and everything in between. Then we look to the New Year to do all the things we thought about doing in 2014.

It's a complicated process. We celebrate, grieve and give thanks. Then we make all sorts of resolutions to start off the New Year.

There seems to be a lot of pressure there. Why plan a whole year? Give up this (fill in the blank), exercise that, meet someone, lose weight, eat healthy and quit bad habits. Sounds like so much work. 

But at least it's a start. And there's no better way to start than with the Wooster Square Blossom Blog.
Your best way to know what is happening here in the Wonderful World of 
Historic Wooster Square. 

Especially when it comes to the Blossoms, and the photographs, and the pizza. It's like a trifecta perfecta! So in that tradition, I chose a bunch of photos from each month (heavy on the Blossom months). So we can relive, rest and revive! 

So let's take a look back on 2014.


Roxie was abandoned in Wooster Square,
she adopted us on January 18th!
Her full official name (she's a purebred mutt)
Rockette Wooster Square 
(there's always room for another dog!) 

She is very happy


Blossom Buddies before Birth
(we followed these buds from... er, buds
through blossoms, leaves and fall.)

Wooster Street, home of New Haven Style Pizza
Frank Pepe's Clam Pie is a unanimous
#1 Appizza (ahbeets) in the USA  
according to the Daily Meal 101 best Pies in the US,
and about everyone else agrees.

#5 Sally's Pizza's (Tomato Pie) is
also conveniently located on Wooster Street.
Not too mention the other fine Italian 
restaurants on our little slice of heaven.

Blossom Buds

Our New Haven (line- Hamden)
Eagles returned. (They probably went up  
to the Connecticut River as their Marsh
froze over. Otherwise, we're told, 
they stay put!

They successfully raised two Eaglets aptly named
Modern & Bar
(Modern is #12 and Bar #24
best pizzas in the USA)
((all walkable from Wooster Square!))

Finally thawed, what a winter!
