New Haven, CT
This door in the entrance of what was first called the United States Post Office and Courthouse. The building designed by New York architect James Gamble Rogers is located on the west side of the New Haven green. In the 1960's as part of a major 1960's urban renewal scheme, the building was a candidate for demolition. But it was saved by a coalition of Federal judges and local preservationists. And after much negotiation, it was restored in the early 1980's at a cost of $7,302,000 and renamed to "United States Courthouse". I guess it means that the postal service didn't care about saving it. (Photo by Bill Owens.)
