Description

AT&T is opening a retail store at 936 Chapel St., where the old tattoo shop used to be. This is probably the ugliest storefront in all of downtown -- completely covered in black styrofoam. The building owner has not been motivated to improve their building, but perhaps AT&T can be persuaded that they owe it to New Haven to make their business look halfway decent. I've already written their "corporate citizenship" PR representative, requesting that they at least remove the dryvit. I would also like to see that their signage, when installed, is of appropriate quality and scale. (The tattoo shop had a plastic sign about five feet tall.) Is there any local approvals process that has guidelines for signage?
