Also from the release and unedited here:
Elm City Market is a community-owned grocery store in downtown New Haven on the corner of State Street and Chapel Street, where everyone can shop! Customers enjoy free one-hour parking in the 360 State Parking Garage. For more information on the Market, visit www.elmcitymarket.coop.

The Pardee-Morris House, one of the oldest surviving historic structures in Connecticut, dates from about 1780. Built by Amos Morris around 1750, the house was burned by the British during their raid on New haven in 1779, and was rebuilt by the Morris family. In 1915, William Pardee, a descendant of the Morris family, willed the property to the New Haven Colony Historical Society, today the New Haven Museum. The Pardee-Morris House is open free of charge on Sundays from 12 pm to 4 pm through August 25, 2013. 

The New Haven Museum, founded in 1862 as the New Haven Colony Historical Society, is located in downtown New Haven at 114 Whitney Avenue. The Museum is currently celebrating 150 years of collecting, preserving, and interpreting the history and heritage of Greater New Haven. Through its collections, programs, and outreach, the Museum brings 375 years of New Haven history to life.
