IN PHOTOS: Sinatra in the Spring Photography and writing by Lukas Flippo, Photo Editor

“Once there was a thing called spring ... When the world was writing verses like yours and mine…” - Frank Sinatra, “Spring is Here”

On March 20th, 1976, Frank Sinatra played a concert in New Haven to a crowd of 11,000 people. Rumor is that he loved New Haven pizza and could have followed up hiss crooning performance with Sally’s Apizza. But I wonder what he thought about the weather?

Last Saturday, March 20th, was the first day of spring. The sun burst through the clouds, and I was finally able to walk the streets of New Haven with my jacket unzipped. And there I went — bounding down the main roads, side streets, and back alleyways of the Elm City, chasing Sinatra’s ghost and snapping away at the springtime sunshine.
