Demolition: Building razed to make way for new colleges

In preparation for the construction of Yale’s 13th and 14th residential colleges, workers on Tuesday razed the 119-year-old Daniel Cady Eaton house at 70 Sachem St. Yale is proceeding with its plans to clear the Prospect Triangle despite the objections of local preservationists. Those same groups also protested Tuesday a plan to open up the Grove Street Cemetery wall.
