Chicago-Yerevan

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 busy corner just off of Chicago’s famous Michigan Avenue was the setting for the unveiling of six park benches, donated by local Armenians, proclaiming the enduring partnership between the two cities. 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.

The Honorary Consul for the Republic of Armenia in Chicago, Oscar Tatosian, welcomed the crowd to the dedication ceremony, which included formal speeches by dignitaries and a performance by youthful Armenian folk dancers.
