Chicago’s budding friendship with Armenia’s capital city, Yerevan, took a step forward on September 9, during a special ceremony in Connor Park.

The benches share a “family resemblance” with ones familiar throughout Yerevan, and make for a cozy resting place amid Connor Park’s beautiful landscaping and surrounding architecture.
