 Part of Collection
Call Number: RU 1055, Series Accession 2008-A-001

Scope and Contents

Laura Keegan recently moved from State College, PA to the Chatham Square Area of North Haven. She shares an apartment with her boyfriend, Walter, who works at Sikorski. Keegan talks about her adopted neighborhood, talking at length about her landlord, Arthur. Upon moving into the neighborhood, Keegan had no expectations, but quickly heard a number of negative stories about Fair Haven from her co-workers. These stories, she says, have proven entirely untrue, and she comments on Fair Haven's bad reputation, suggesting that it's wholly undeserved. She is mostly happy with her neighbors, but has a few suggestions for increasing feelings of community in the Chatham Square area, including the use of internet forums. Keegan compares New Haven to State College, concluding that both are typical college towns. Keegan discusses her artistic ambitions, and her plans to apply to graduate school.
