A blog post from the Brown Daily Herald ranked the Ivy League universities on “who wore it best” in terms of Henry Moore sculptures. Yale came in fourth with ‘Draped Seated Woman,’ probably because the ranking was biased. Topping the list was the gender neutral fit of abstractionism “Ra Ra Brunonia!” that graces Brown’s campus.
A list from Food Republic ranked the best cheese shops in America and New Haven’s Caseus came in third place. “The cellar-level fromagerie sells over 100 cheeses, plus locally sourced preserves, pickled products from a Yale graduate and bake sale-worthy brownies, individually wrapped and studded with tangy chevre,” the article said.

New Haven rabbi Noah Muroff purchased a $150 desk off of Craigslist in September. Yet once he took the desk home, he found a shopping bag with $98,000 of cash inside, according to Tablet Magazine.
