Yale Celebrates the Opening of Scensibles in Downtown New Haven


New Haven, Conn. — Yale’s Office of University Properties welcomes Scensibles to 1044 Chapel St., in the Chapel Street Historic District of downtown New Haven.

Scensibles, a new boutique in Sherman’s Alley, will open its doors in time for the upcoming “First Thursdays” event which takes place in the Chapel Street Historic District on the first Thursday of every month.

The press is invited to the ribbon-cutting ceremony for Scensibles on June 1 at 11 a.m.

Scensibles, owned by Ali Linkov, offers clothing and beauty items which range from vintage pieces to affordable made-to-order accessories created by environmentally friendly local artisans. Linkov encourages customers to feel like they are in their own homes by keeping everything accessible in open display cases.

“The service and special events Scensibles offers, like their trunk shows and shopping parties, will certainly make this boutique a destination,” said Shana N. Schneider, director of marketing for University Properties.

Scensibles’ first special event will be a trunk show as part of the “First Thursdays” celebration on June 7, when shops and restaurants on Chapel, College, High and York streets will stay open until 9 p.m., offering live music, shopping discounts, local artists and complimentary in-store wine and cheese.

“With our focus on showcasing local artisans and providing a unique shopping experience, I think downtown New Haven is the perfect fit for Scensibles,” said Linkov. “Plus, the great energy from the other merchants through events like First Thursdays is contagious.”

Scensibles is located in one of Yale’s community investment properties. The University is an active partner in creating a vital downtown and promoting New Haven’s economic development. For more information on Yale’s New Haven initiatives, see
