You don’t have to wait for nightfall to go stargazing in New Haven, Connecticut. If you’re near the corner of Orange and Crown Streets, you don’t even have to look up at the sky. In fact, it’s best to go in daylight and turn your eyes downward to see the “Path of Stars.” On either side of Orange at it’s crossing with Crown, and on Crown approaching the intersection of State Street on the east and Church Street on the west observant pedestrians will find twenty-one gray granite stars within white concrete circles that are themselves set within pink concrete squares and embedded in the sidewalk. Each star bears the name and a bit of story about a person who lived or worked in the area from the late seventeenth century to the middle of the twentieth. They are not the famous people whose names were frequently in the newspapers of their day and who are now found in history books. They are people you’ve probably never heard of whose lives nevertheless made a difference.
