Sports Football NFL. The New York Giants of the National Football League won just one of the dozen home games they played in New Haven in the 1973 and 1974 seasons. (With the exception of the games played with replacement teams during the 1987 NFL strike, the attendance at the final game at the Yale Bowl is the smallest at a Giants' home game since 1955.)
The gallery was founded in 1832, when patriot-artist John Trumbull donated more than 100 paintings of the American Revolution to Yale College and designed the original Picture Gallery.   This building, on the university's Old Campus , was razed in 1901.
