birth of the hamburger – new haven, ct

on a recent road trip up the East Coast, I stopped off at the strange juxtaposition-ed [large homeless collective a block away from Yale University, anyone?] town of New Haven, CT to visit the tiny little Louis Lunch – boasting loudly [with historical backing] that they were, back in the early 1900s, the spot where the hamburger was invented.

others disagree.

but well worth a visit.
