Connery opens Alba House

According to China Daily, Sean Connery is opening Alba House as the New York City base of his Friends of Scotland charity. The building is a refurbished townhouse.

The Scotsman is convinced this project “will infuriate the Scottish government,”

Sir Sean Connery has turned a swanky Manhattan building into Alba House – a kind of unofficial Scottish embassy to be used by businessmen and academics from the old country when they need a base in the Big Apple.

The project is a fascinating one -not least because it will infuriate the Scottish government, whose own attempts at establishing a presence in the States have met with only limited success.

  1. Wow, Connery looks way way better than a few years ago. Before he looked like he was going to die any second, but now he looks great.

    Sam, that picture is from 2004. It was the best one I could find with a kilt. I thought the kilt was appropriate to the subject.

  3. Where is Alba House in Manhattan and what goes on as a program there? would you like to have a Victorian portrait of Robert Burns or a lithograph of his funeral procession?

  4. Deborah Lipp Says:

    I actually don’t know the address.
