New Haven Veterans Memorial Coliseum

They are currently in the process of tearing this wonderful building down. It was quite unique in my mind as the garage was actually on the roof of the building. Here are some pictures from it's glory days and some I took today. I've also included a few web links to related sites. We tried for years to save the coliseum. Too bad we failed.

Back in the good old days:

Save the New Haven Coliseum website.

A little while after construction:
