Introducing New Haven
Much maligned for decades as a decayed urban seaport notable only for being an uneasy home to the venerable Yale University, Connecticut’s second-largest city has risen from its ashes to become an arts mecca. New Haven is still an important port – as it has been since the 1630s – but today manufacturing, health care and telecommunications also help power New Haven’s economy. At the city’s center stands tranquil New Haven Green, bordered by graceful colonial churches and Yale. Ethnic restaurants, theaters, museums, pubs and clubs dot the city and make the Yale University area almost as lively as Cambridge’s Harvard Sq – but with better pizza.
