New Haven
New Haven
(locally /nuː ˈheɪvən/ noo-HAY-vən)[2] is a coastal city in the U.S. state
U.S. state
of Connecticut. It is located on New Haven Harbor on the northern shore of Long Island Sound
Long Island Sound
in New Haven
New Haven
County, Connecticut, and is part of the New York metropolitan area. With a population of 129,779 as determined by the 2010 United States Census,[3] it is the second-largest city in Connecticut
Connecticut
after Bridgeport. New Haven
New Haven
is the principal municipality of Greater New Haven, which had a total population of 862,477 in 2010.[4] New Haven
New Haven
was the first planned city in America.[5][6][7] Founded in 1638 by English Puritans, a year later eight streets were laid out in a four-by-four grid, creating what is commonly known as the "Nine Square Plan".[8] The central common block is the New Haven
New Haven
Green, a 16-acre (6 ha) square, and the center of Downtown New Haven. The Green is now a National Historic Landmark
National Historic Landmark
and the "Nine Square Plan" is recognized by the American Planning Association
American Planning Association
as a National Planning Landmark.[9] The Green also serves as a free public WiFi hotspot.[10] New Haven
New Haven
is the home of Yale University. As New Haven's biggest taxpayer and employer,[11] Yale serves as an integral part of the city's economy. Health care (hospitals and biotechnology), professional services (legal, architectural, marketing, and engineering), financial services, and retail trade also contribute to the city's economic activity. The city served as co-capital of Connecticut
Connecticut
from 1701 until 1873, when sole governance was transferred to the more centrally located city of Hartford. New Haven
New Haven
has since billed itself as the "Cultural Capital of Connecticut" for its supply of established theaters, museums, and music venues. The New York Times
The New York Times
said the city has "Art almost everywhere you look."[12] New Haven
New Haven
had the first public tree planting program in America, producing a canopy of mature trees (including some large elms) that gave New Haven

the nickname "The Elm

History[edit] Pre-colonial foundation as an independent colony[edit] Before Europeans arrived, the New Haven
New Haven
area was the home of the Quinnipiac
Quinnipiac
tribe of Native Americans, who lived in villages around the harbor and subsisted off local fisheries and the farming of maize. The area was briefly visited by Dutch explorer Adriaen Block
Adriaen Block
in 1614. Dutch traders set up a small trading system of beaver pelts with the local inhabitants, but trade was sporadic and the Dutch did not settle permanently in the area.

The 1638 nine-square plan, with the extant New Haven Green
New Haven Green
at its center, continues to define New Haven's downtown

In 1637 a small party of Puritans reconnoitered the New Haven
New Haven
harbor area and wintered over. In April 1638, the main party of five hundred Puritans who had left the Massachusetts Bay Colony
Massachusetts Bay Colony
under the leadership of the Reverend John Davenport and London merchant Theophilus Eaton
Theophilus Eaton
sailed into the harbor. It was their hope to set up a theological community with the government more closely linked to the church than that in Massachusetts, and to exploit the area's excellent potential as a port. The Quinnipiacs, who were under attack by neighboring Pequots, sold their land to the settlers in return for protection.

By 1640, "Qunnipiac's" theocratic government and nine-square grid plan were in place, and the town was renamed Newhaven, with 'haven' meaning harbor or port. (However, the area to the north remained Quinnipiac until 1678, when it was renamed Hamden.) The settlement became the headquarters of the New Haven
New Haven
Colony, distinct from the Connecticut Colony previously established to the north centering on Hartford. Reflecting its theocratic roots, the New Haven Colony
New Haven Colony
forbid the establishment of other churches, whereas the Connecticut
Connecticut
Colony permitted them. Economic disaster struck Newhaven in 1646, when the town sent its first fully loaded ship of local goods back to England. It never reached its destination, and its disappearance stymied New Haven's development versus the rising trade powers of Boston

and New Amsterdam. In 1660, Colony founder John Davenport's wishes were fulfilled, and Hopkins School

was founded in New Haven

with money from the estate of Edward Hopkins. In 1661, the Regicides who had signed the death warrant of Charles I of England were pursued by Charles II. Two of them, Colonel Edward Whalley and Colonel William Goffe, fled to New Haven

for refuge. Davenport arranged for them to hide in the West Rock

hills northwest of the town. Later a third judge, John Dixwell, joined the others. As part of the Connecticut

became part of the Connecticut

Colony when the two colonies were merged under political pressure from England, according to folklore as punishment for harboring the three judges (in reality, done in order to strengthen the case for the takeover of nearby New Amsterdam, which was rapidly losing territory to migrants from Connecticut).[citation needed] Some members of the New Haven
New Haven
Colony seeking to establish a new theocracy elsewhere went on to establish Newark, New Jersey.

Connecticut
Connecticut

It was made co-capital of Connecticut

in 1701, a status it retained until 1873. In 1716, the Collegiate School relocated from Old Saybrook to New Haven, establishing New Haven
New Haven
as a center of learning. In 1718, in response to a large donation from British East India Company
East India Company
merchant Elihu Yale, former Governor of Madras, the name of the Collegiate School was changed to Yale College. For over a century, New Haven
New Haven
citizens had fought in the colonial militia alongside regular British forces, as in the French and Indian War. As the American Revolution

approached, General David Wooster
David Wooster
and other influential residents hoped that the conflict with the government in Britain could be resolved short of rebellion. On 23 April 1775, which is still celebrated in New Haven
New Haven
as Powder House Day, the Second Company, Governor's Foot Guard, of New Haven
New Haven
entered the struggle against the governing British parliament. Under Captain Benedict Arnold, they broke into the powder house to arm themselves and began a three-day march to Cambridge, Massachusetts. Other New Haven militia members were on hand to escort George Washington

on his way to Cambridge. Contemporary reports, from both sides, remark on the New Haven

volunteers' professional military bearing, including uniforms. On July 5, 1779, 2,600 loyalists and British regulars under General William Tryon, governor of New York, landed in New Haven Harbor
New Haven Harbor
and raided the 3,500-person town. A militia of Yale students had been preparing for battle, and former Yale president and Yale Divinity School professor Naphtali Daggett
Naphtali Daggett
rode out to confront the Redcoats. Yale president Ezra Stiles recounted in his diary that while he moved furniture in anticipation of battle, he still couldn't quite believe the revolution had begun.[14] New Haven
New Haven
was not torched as the invaders did with Danbury in 1777, or Fairfield and Norwalk a week after the New Haven

raid, so many of the town's colonial features were preserved. Post-colonial period and industrialization[edit] New Haven
New Haven
was incorporated as a city in 1784, and Roger Sherman, one of the signers of the Constitution and author of the "Connecticut Compromise", became the new city's first mayor.

The city struck fortune in the late 18th century with the inventions and industrial activity of Eli Whitney, a Yale graduate who remained in New Haven
New Haven
to develop the cotton gin and establish a gun-manufacturing factory in the northern part of the city near the Hamden town line. That area is still known as Whitneyville, and the main road through both towns is known as Whitney Avenue. The factory is now the Eli Whitney
Eli Whitney
Museum, which has a particular emphasis on activities for children and exhibits pertaining to the A. C. Gilbert Company. His factory, along with that of Simeon North, and the lively clock-making and brass hardware sectors, contributed to making early Connecticut
Connecticut
a powerful manufacturing economy; so many arms manufacturers sprang up that the state became known as "The Arsenal of America". It was in Whitney's gun-manufacturing plant that Samuel Colt invented the automatic revolver in 1836. Many other talented machinists and firearms designers would go on to found successful firearms manufacturing companies in New Haven, including Oliver Winchester and O.F. Mossberg & Sons. The Farmington Canal, created in the early 19th century, was a short-lived transporter of goods into the interior regions of Connecticut
Connecticut
and Massachusetts, and ran from New Haven
New Haven
to Northampton, Massachusetts.

New Haven
was home to one of the important early events in the burgeoning anti-slavery movement when, in 1839, the trial of mutineering Mende tribesmen being transported as slaves on the Spanish slaveship Amistad was held in New Haven's United States District Court.[16] There is a statue of Joseph Cinqué, the informal leader of the slaves, beside City

Historic District.[18]) After the war, population grew and doubled by the start of the 20th century, most notably due to the influx of immigrants from southern Europe, particularly Italy. Today, roughly half the populations of East Haven, West Haven, and North Haven are Italian-American. Jewish immigration to New Haven
New Haven
has left an enduring mark on the city. Westville was the center of Jewish life in New Haven, though today many have fanned out to suburban communities such as Woodbridge and Cheshire. Post-industrial era and urban redevelopment[edit]

The historic New Haven
New Haven
Green, ca. 1919

New Haven's expansion continued during the two World Wars, with most new inhabitants being African Americans from the American South and Puerto Ricans. The city reached its peak population after World War II. The area of New Haven
New Haven
is only 17 square miles (44 km2), encouraging further development of new housing after 1950 in adjacent, suburban towns. Moreover, as in other U.S. cities in the 1950s, New Haven began to suffer white flight of middle-class workers. One author suggested that aggressive redlining and rezoning made it difficult for residents to obtain financing for older, deteriorating urban housing stock, thereby condemning such structures to deterioration.[19][additional citation(s) needed] In 1954, then-mayor Richard C. Lee
Richard C. Lee
began some of the earliest major urban renewal projects in the United States. Certain sections of downtown New Haven
New Haven
were redeveloped to include museums, new office towers, a hotel, and large shopping complexes.[20] Other parts of the city, particularly the Wooster Square
Wooster Square
and Fair Haven neighborhoods were affected by the construction of Interstate 95
Interstate 95
along the Long Wharf section, Interstate 91, and the Oak Street Connector. The Oak Street Connector (Route 34), running between Interstate 95, downtown, and The Hill neighborhood, was originally intended as a highway to the city's western suburbs but was only completed as a highway to the downtown area, with the area to the west becoming a boulevard (See "Redevelopment" below). In 1970, a series of criminal prosecutions against various members of the Black Panther Party
Black Panther Party
took place in New Haven, inciting mass protests on the New Haven Green
New Haven Green
involving twelve thousand demonstrators and many well-known New Left
New Left
political activists. (See "Political Culture" below for more information). From the 1960s through the late 1990s, central areas of New Haven continued to decline both economically and in terms of population despite attempts to resurrect certain neighborhoods through renewal projects. In conjunction with its declining population, New Haven experienced a steep rise in its crime rate.

Financial Center, completed in 1990, is the tallest building in New Haven

Since approximately 2000, many parts of downtown New Haven
New Haven
have been revitalized with new restaurants, nightlife, and small retail stores. In particular, the area surrounding the New Haven Green
New Haven Green
has experienced an influx of apartments and condominiums. In recent years, downtown retail options have increased with the opening of new stores such as Urban Oufitters, J Crew, Origins, American Apparel, Gant Clothing, and an Apple Store, joining older stores such as Barnes & Noble and Raggs Clothing. In addition, two new supermarkets opened to serve downtown's growing residential population. A Stop & Shop opened just west of downtown, while Elm

has received positive press from various periodicals.[22][23][24]

Whitney Avenue, one of downtown New Haven's principal commercial corridors

Major projects include the current construction of a new campus for Gateway Community College downtown, and also a 32-story, 500-unit apartment/retail building called 360 State Street. The 360 State Street project is now occupied and is the largest residential building in Connecticut.[25] A new boathouse and dock is planned for New Haven Harbor, and the linear park Farmington Canal
Farmington Canal
Trail is set to extend into downtown New Haven
New Haven
within the coming year.[26] Additionally, foundation and ramp work to widen I-95 to create a new harbor crossing for New Haven, with an extradosed bridge to replace the 1950s-era Q Bridge, has begun.[27] The city still hopes to redevelop the site of the New Haven
New Haven
Coliseum, which was demolished in 2007.

Recent decades have brought increased commercial activity to much of New Haven, including this stretch of upper State Street

In April 2009, the United States Supreme Court
United States Supreme Court
agreed to hear a suit over reverse discrimination brought by 18 white firefighters against the city. The suit involved the 2003 promotion test for the New Haven Fire Department. After the tests were scored, no black firefighters scored high enough to qualify for consideration for promotion, so the city announced that no one would be promoted. In the subsequent Ricci v. DeStefano decision the court found 5-4 that New Haven's decision to ignore the test results violated Title VII
Title VII
of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.[28] As a result, a district court subsequently ordered the city to promote 14 of the white firefighters.[29] In 2010 and 2011, state and federal funds were awarded to Connecticut (and Massachusetts) to construct the Hartford
Hartford
Line, with a southern terminus at New Haven's Union Station and a northern terminus at Springfield's Union Station.[30] According to the White House, "This corridor [currently] has one train per day connecting communities in Connecticut
Connecticut
and Massachusetts
Massachusetts
to the Northeast Corridor
Northeast Corridor
and Vermont. The vision for this corridor is to restore the alignment to its original route via the Knowledge Corridor
Knowledge Corridor
in western Massachusetts, improving trip time and increasing the population base that can be served."[31] Set for construction in 2013, the "Knowledge Corridor high speed intercity passenger rail" project will cost approximately $1 billion, and the ultimate northern terminus for the project is reported to be Montreal
Montreal
in Canada.[32] Train speeds between will reportedly exceed 110 miles per hour (180 km/h) and increase both cities' rail traffic exponentially.[33] Timeline of notable firsts[edit]

area

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 20.1 square miles (52.1 km2), of which 18.7 square miles (48.4 km2) is land and 1.4 square miles (3.7 km2), or 6.67%, is water.[45] New Haven's best-known geographic features are its large deep harbor, and two reddish basalt trap rock ridges which rise to the northeast and northwest of the city core. These trap rocks are known respectively as East Rock
East Rock
and West Rock, and both serve as extensive parks. West Rock
West Rock
has been tunneled through to make way for the east-west passage of the Wilbur Cross Parkway
Wilbur Cross Parkway
(the only highway tunnel through a natural obstacle in Connecticut), and once served as the hideout of the "Regicides" (see: Regicides Trail). Most New Haveners refer to these men as "The Three Judges". East Rock
East Rock
features the prominent Soldiers and Sailors war monument on its peak as well as the "Great/Giant Steps" which run up the rock's cliffside. The city is drained by three rivers; the West, Mill, and Quinnipiac, named in order from west to east. The West River discharges into West Haven Harbor, while the Mill and Quinnipiac
Quinnipiac
rivers discharge into New Haven Harbor. Both harbors are embayments of Long Island
Long Island
Sound. In addition, several smaller streams flow through the city's neighborhoods, including Wintergreen Brook, the Beaver
Beaver
Ponds Outlet, Wilmot Brook, Belden Brook, and Prospect Creek. Not all of these small streams have continuous flow year-round. Climate[edit] New Haven
New Haven
has a temperate climate (Köppen climate classification: Dfa) typical of much of the New York metropolitan area, with long, hot summers, and cool to cold winters. From May to late September, the weather is typically hot and humid, with average temperatures exceeding 80 °F (27 °C) on 70 days per year. In summer, the Bermuda High
Bermuda High
creates as southern flow of warm and humid air, with frequent thundershowers. October to early December is normally mild to cool late in the season, while early spring (April) can be cool to warm. Winters are moderately cold with both rain and snow fall. The weather patterns that affect New Haven
New Haven
result from a primarily offshore direction, thus reducing the marine influence of Long Island Sound—although, like other marine areas, differences in temperature between areas right along the coastline and areas a mile or two inland can be large at times. During summer heat waves, temperatures may reach 95 °F (35 °C) or higher on occasion with heat-index values of over 100 °F (38 °C). Tropical cyclones

New Haven
was laid out in a grid plan of nine square blocks; the central square was left open, in the tradition of many New England towns, as the city green (a commons area). The city also instituted the first public tree planting program in America. As in other cities, many of the elms that gave New Haven
New Haven
the nickname " Elm

disease, although many have since been replanted. The New Haven Green
New Haven Green
is currently home to three separate historic churches which speak to the original theocratic nature of the city.[8] The Green remains the social center of the city today. It was named a National Historic Landmark

in 1970. Downtown New Haven, occupied by nearly 7,000 residents, has a more residential character than most downtowns.[50] The downtown area provides about half of the city's jobs and half of its tax base[50] and in recent years has become filled with dozens of new upscale restaurants, several of which have garnered national praise (such as Ibiza (now under new management as "Olea"), recognized by Esquire and Wine Spectator
Wine Spectator
magazines as well as the New York Times

as the best Spanish food in the country), in addition to shops and thousands of apartments and condominium units which subsequently help overall growth of the city.[51] Neighborhoods[edit]

New Haven's economy originally was based in manufacturing, but the postwar period brought rapid industrial decline; the entire Northeast was affected, and medium-sized cities with large working-class populations, like New Haven, were hit particularly hard. Simultaneously, the growth and expansion of Yale University
Yale University
further affected the economic shift. Today, over half (56%) of the city's economy is now made up of services, in particular education and health care; Yale is the city's largest employer, followed by Yale – New Haven Hospital. Other large employers include Southern Connecticut State University, Assa Abloy

were 31.8% of the population in 2010,[66] down from 69.6% in 1970.[67] The city's demography is shifting rapidly: New Haven
New Haven
has always been a city of immigrants and the Latino population is growing rapidly. Previous influxes among ethnic groups have been African-Americans in the postwar era, and Irish, Italian and (to a lesser degree) Slavic peoples in the prewar period. As of the 2010 census, of the 47,094 households, 29.3% have children under the age of 18 living with them, 27.5% include married couples living together, 22.9% have a female householder with no husband present, and 45.1% are non-families. 36.1% of all households are made up of individuals and 10.5% have someone living alone who is 65 years of age or older. The average household size is 2.40 and the average family size 3.19.[68][69] The ages of New Haven's residents are 25.4% under the age of 18, 16.4% from 18 to 24, 31.2% from 25 to 44, 16.7% from 45 to 64, and 10.2% who were 65 years of age or older. The median age is 29 years, which is significantly lower than the national average. There are 91.8 males per 100 females. For every 100 females age 18 and over, there are 87.6 males. The median income for a household in the city is $29,604, and the median income for a family is $35,950. Median income for males is $33,605, compared with $28,424 for females. The per capita income for the city is $16,393. About 20.5% of families and 24.4% of the population live below the poverty line, including 32.2% of those under age 18 and 17.9% of those age 65 or over.[68][69] Other data[edit] It is estimated that 14% of New Haven
New Haven
residents are pedestrian commuters, ranking it number four by highest percentage in the United States. This is primarily due to New Haven's small area and the presence of Yale University. New Haven
New Haven
is a predominantly Roman Catholic city, as the city's Dominican, Irish, Italian, Mexican, Ecuadorian, and Puerto Rican populations are overwhelmingly Catholic. The city is part of the Archdiocese of Hartford. Jews
Jews
also make up a considerable portion of the population, as do Black Baptists. There is a growing number of (mostly Puerto Rican) Pentecostals as well. There are churches for all major branches of Christianity within the city, multiple store-front churches, ministries (especially in working-class Latino and Black neighborhoods), a mosque, many synagogues (including two yeshivas), and other places of worship; the level of religious diversity in the city is high. A study of the demographics of the New Haven

in his classic volume on 19th-century American political life, Democracy in America.[86] New Haven

activists (including Jean Genet, Benjamin Spock, Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, and John Froines), who amassed on the New Haven Green, across the street from where the trials were being held. Violent confrontations between the demonstrators and the New Haven Police occurred, and several bombs were set off in the area by radicals. The event became a rallying point for the New Left

and critics of the Nixon Administration.[89][90] During the summer of 2007, New Haven

New Haven
having one of the ten highest violent crime rates per capita in the United States.[99] In the late 1990s New Haven's crime began to stabilize. The city, adopting a policy of community policing, saw crime rates drop during the 2000s.[100][101] Violent crime levels vary dramatically among New Haven's neighborhoods, with some areas having crime rates in line with the state of Connecticut

average, and others having extremely high rates of crime. A 2011 New Haven

Health Department report identifies these issues in greater detail.[102] In 2010, New Haven
New Haven
ranked as the 18th most dangerous city in the United States (albeit below the safety benchmark of 200.00 for the second year in a row).[103] However, according to a completely different analysis conducted by the "24/7 Wall Street Blog", in 2011 New Haven
New Haven
had risen to become the fourth most dangerous city in the United States, and was widely cited in the press as such.[104][105] However, an analysis by the Regional Data Cooperative for Greater New Haven, Inc., has shown that due to issues of comparative denominators and other factors, such municipality-based rankings can be considered inaccurate.[106] For example, two cities of identical population can cover widely differing land areas, making such analyses irrelevant. The research organization called for comparisons based on neighborhoods, blocks, or standard methodologies (similar to those used by Brookings, DiversityData, and other established institutions), not based on municipalities. Education[edit] Colleges and universities[edit] New Haven

White clam pizza from Pepe's, in the classic New Haven-style

New Haven's greatest culinary claim to fame may be its pizza, which has been claimed to be among the best in the country,[120][121][122][123] or even in the world.[124][125] New Haven-style pizza, called "apizza" (pronounced ah-BEETS, [aˈpitts] in the original Italian dialect), made its debut at the iconic Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana (known as Pepe's) in 1925.[126] Apizza is baked in coal- or wood-fired brick ovens, and is notable for its thin crust. Apizza may be red (with a tomato-based sauce) or white (with a sauce of garlic and olive oil), and pies ordered "plain" are made without the otherwise customary mozzarella cheese (originally smoked mozzarella, known as "scamorza" in Italian). A white clam pie is a well-known specialty of the restaurants on Wooster Street in the Little Italy
Italy
section of New Haven, including Pepe's and Sally's Apizza (which opened in 1938). Modern Apizza
Modern Apizza
on State Street, which opened in 1934, is also well-known.[127]

Louis' Lunch, where the hamburger was reputedly invented in 1900

A second New Haven
New Haven
gastronomical claim to fame is Louis' Lunch, which is located in a small brick building on Crown Street and has been serving fast food since 1895.[128] Though fiercely debated, the restaurant's founder Louis Lassen is credited by the Library of Congress with inventing the hamburger and steak sandwich.[129][130] Louis' Lunch
Louis' Lunch
broils hamburgers, steak sandwiches and hot dogs vertically in original antique 1898 cast iron stoves using gridirons, patented by local resident Luigi Pieragostini in 1939, that hold the meat in place while it cooks.[131] A third New Haven
New Haven
gastronomical claim to fame is Miya's, the first sustainable sushi restaurant in the world. Miya's, founded by Chef Yoshiko Lai in 1982, featured the first sustainable seafood-based sushi menu, the first plant-based sushi menu, and the first invasive species menu in the world. Second generation Miya's

New Haven
in 1995, he outlined a plan to transform the city into a major cultural and arts center in the Northeast, which involved investments in programs and projects other than sports franchises. As nearby Bridgeport built new sports facilities, the brutalist New Haven Coliseum

The restored Black Rock Fort

In 1660, Edward Whalley
Edward Whalley
(a cousin and friend of Oliver Cromwell) and William Goffe, two English Civil War
English Civil War
generals who signed the death warrant of King Charles I, hid in a rock formation in New Haven
New Haven
after having fled England upon the restoration of Charles II to the English throne.[168] They were later joined by a third regicide, John Dixwell. The rock formation, which is now a part of West Rock
West Rock
Park, is known as Judges' Cave, and the path leading to the cave is called the Regicides Trail. After the American Revolutionary War
American Revolutionary War
broke out in 1776, the Connecticut
Connecticut
colonial government ordered the construction of Black Rock Fort (to be built on top of an older 17th-century fort) to protect the port of New Haven. In 1779, during the Battle of New Haven, British soldiers captured Black Rock Fort and burned the barracks to the ground. The fort was reconstructed in 1807 by the federal government (on orders from the Thomas Jefferson
Thomas Jefferson
administration), and rechristened Fort Nathan Hale, after the Revolutionary War hero who had lived in New Haven. The cannons of Fort Nathan Hale
Fort Nathan Hale
were successful in defying British war ships during the War of 1812. In 1863, during the Civil War, a second Fort Hale was built next to the original, complete with bomb-resistant bunkers and a moat, to defend the city should a Southern raid against New Haven
New Haven
be launched. The United States Congress deeded the site to the state in 1921, and all three versions of the fort have been restored. The site is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places and receives thousands of visitors each year.[169][170] Grove Street Cemetery, a National Historic Landmark
National Historic Landmark
which lies adjacent to Yale's campus, contains the graves of Roger Sherman, Eli Whitney, Noah Webster, Josiah Willard Gibbs, Charles Goodyear
Charles Goodyear
and Walter Camp, among other notable burials.[171] The cemetery is noted for its Egyptian Revival

gateway, and is the oldest planned burial ground in the United States.[172] The Union League Club of New Haven building, located on Chapel Street, is notable for not only being a historic Beaux-Arts building, but also is built on the site where Roger Sherman's home once stood; George Washington
George Washington
is known to have stayed at the Sherman residence while President in 1789 (one of three times Washington visited New Haven
New Haven
throughout his lifetime).[173][174] Two sites pay homage to the time President and Chief Justice William Howard Taft lived in the city, as both a student and later Professor at Yale: a plaque on Prospect Street marks the site where Taft's home formerly stood,[175] and downtown's Taft Apartment Building (formerly the Taft Hotel) bears the name of the former President who resided in the building for eight years before becoming Chief Justice of the United States.[143] Lighthouse Point Park, a public beach run by the city, was a popular tourist destination during the Roaring Twenties, attracting luminaries of the period such as Babe Ruth
Babe Ruth
and Ty Cobb.[176] The park remains popular among New Haveners, and is home to the Five Mile Point Lighthouse, constructed in 1847, and the Lighthouse Point Carousel, constructed in 1916.[177][178] Five Mile Point Light
Five Mile Point Light
was decommissioned in 1877 following the construction of Southwest Ledge Light at the entrance of the harbor, which remains in service to this day. Both of the lighthouses and the carousel are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Other historic sites in the city include the Soldiers and Sailors Monument, which stands at the summit of East Rock, the Marsh Botanical Garden, Wooster Square, Dwight Street, Louis' Lunch, and the Farmington Canal, all of which date back to the 19th century. Other historic parks besides the Green include Edgerton Park, Edgewood Park, and East Rock

and Springfield, Massachusetts; and the Vermonter provides service to both Washington, D.C., and Vermont, 15 miles (24 km) from the Canada–US border. Amtrak
Amtrak
also codeshares with United Airlines for travel to any airport serviced by United Airlines, via Newark Airport (EWR) originating from or terminating at Union Station (IATA: ZVE). Metro-North has the third highest daily ridership among commuter rails in the country, with an average weekday ridership of 276,000 in 2009. Of the 276,000 Metro-North riders, 112,000 rode the New Haven

Division of Connecticut
Connecticut
Transit (CT Transit), the state's bus system, is the second largest division in the state with 24 routes. All routes originate from the New Haven
New Haven
Green, making it the central transfer hub of the city. Service is provided to 19 different municipalities throughout Greater New Haven. Bus
Bus
routes were formerly identified by numbers, but as of October 8, 2017, all service was renamed using 200-series numbers, in accordance with a renumbering of CTtransit's statewide services.[182] CT Transit's Union Station Shuttle provides free service from Union Station to the New Haven Green
New Haven Green
and several New Haven
New Haven
parking garages. Peter Pan and Greyhound bus lines have scheduled stops at Union Station, and connections downtown can be made via the Union Station Shuttle. A private company operates the New Haven/ Hartford
Hartford
Express which provides commuter bus service to Hartford. The Yale University Shuttle provides free transportation around New Haven
New Haven
for Yale students, faculty, and staff. The New Haven
New Haven
Division buses follow routes that had originally been covered by trolley service. Horse-drawn steetcars began operating in New Haven
New Haven
in the 1860s, and by the mid-1890s all the lines had become electric. In the 1920s and 1930s, some of the trolley lines began to be replaced by bus lines, with the last trolley route converted to bus in 1948. The City
City
of New Haven
New Haven
is in the very early stages of considering the restoration of streetcar (light-rail) service, which has been absent since the postwar period.[183][184][185][186] Bicycle[edit] Bikeshare[edit] On February 21, 2018, New Haven
New Haven
officially launched its Bike New Haven bikeshare program.[187] based on dockless technology powered by Noa Technologies[188] At time of launch, the program features 10 docking stations and 100 bikes, spread throughout the urban core; there are plans to reach 30 bike stations and 300 bikes by the end of April 2018.[187] The launch of the New Haven
New Haven
bikeshare program coincided with the launch of Yale University's own bikeshare program, which uses the same technology powered by Noa.[189] Bike lanes[edit] In 2004, the first bike lane in the city was added to Orange Street, connecting East Rock Park
East Rock Park
and the East Rock
East Rock
neighborhood to downtown. Since then, bike lanes have also been added to sections of Howard Ave, Elm
Elm
St, Dixwell Avenue, Water Street, Clinton Avenue and State Street. The city has created recommended bike routes for getting around New Haven, including use of the Canal Trail and the Orange Street lane.[190][191] As of the end of 2012, bicycle lanes have also been added in both directions on Dixwell Avenue along most of the street from downtown to the Hamden town line, as well as along Howard Avenue from Yale New Haven
New Haven
Hospital to City
City
Point. The city has plans to create two additional bike lanes connecting Union Station with downtown, and the Westville neighborhood with downtown. The city has added dozens of covered bike parking spots at Union Station, in order to facilitate more bike commuting to the station.[192] Farmington Canal
Farmington Canal
Greenway[edit] The Farmington Canal
Farmington Canal
Trail is a rail trail that will eventually run continuously from downtown New Haven
New Haven
to Northampton, Massachusetts. The scenic trail follows the path of the historic New Haven
New Haven
and Northampton Company and the Farmington Canal. Currently, there is a continuous 14-mile (23 km) stretch of the trail from downtown, through Hamden and into Cheshire, making bicycle commuting between New Haven and those suburbs possible. The trail is part of the East Coast Greenway, a proposed 3,000-mile (4,800 km) bike path that would link every major city on the East Coast from Florida
Florida
to Maine. Roads[edit]

shoreline, Rhode Island, and eastern Massachusetts—and Interstate 91, which leads northward to the interior of Massachusetts
Massachusetts
and Vermont
Vermont
and the Canada–US border. I-95 is infamous for traffic jams increasing with proximity to New York City; on the east side of New Haven
New Haven
it passes over the Quinnipiac River via the Pearl Harbor Memorial, or "Q Bridge", which often presents a major bottleneck to traffic. I-91, however, is relatively less congested, except at the intersection with I-95 during peak travel times. The Oak Street Connector
Oak Street Connector
( Connecticut
Connecticut
Route 34) intersects I-91 at exit 1, just south of the I-95/I-91 interchange, and runs northwest for a few blocks as an expressway spur into downtown before emptying onto surface roads. The Wilbur Cross Parkway
Wilbur Cross Parkway
( Connecticut
Connecticut
Route 15) runs parallel to I-95 west of New Haven, turning northwards as it nears the city and then running northwards parallel to I-91 through the outer rim of New Haven
New Haven
and Hamden, offering an alternative to the I-95/I-91 journey (restricted to non-commercial vehicles). Route 15 in New Haven
New Haven
is the site of the only highway tunnel in the state (officially designated as Heroes Tunnel), running through West Rock, home to West Rock
West Rock
Park and the Three Judges Cave. The city also has several major surface arteries. U.S. Route 1 (Columbus Avenue, Union Avenue, Water Street, Forbes Avenue) runs in an east-west direction south of downtown serving Union Station and leading out of the city to Milford, West Haven, East Haven and Branford. The main road from downtown heading northwest is Whalley Avenue (partly signed as Route 10 and Route 63) leading to Westville and Woodbridge. Heading north towards Hamden, there are two major thoroughfares, Dixwell Avenue and Whitney Avenue. To the northeast are Middletown Avenue (Route 17), which leads to the Montowese section of North Haven, and Foxon Boulevard (Route 80), which leads to the Foxon section of East Haven and to the town of North Branford. To the west is Route 34, which leads to the city of Derby. Other major intracity arteries are Ella Grasso
Ella Grasso
Boulevard (Route 10) west of downtown, and College Street, Temple Street, Church Street, Elm

Port of New Haven

New Haven Harbor
New Haven Harbor
is home to the Port of New Haven, a deep-water seaport with three berths capable of hosting vessels and barges as well as the facilities required to handle break bulk cargo. The port has the capacity to load 200 trucks a day from the ground or via loading docks. Rail transportation access is available, with a private switch engine for yard movements and private siding for loading and unloading. Approximately 400,000 square feet (40,000 m2) of inside storage and 50 acres (200,000 m2) of outside storage are available at the site. Five shore cranes with a 250-ton capacity and 26 forklifts, each with a 26-ton capacity, are also available.[57] In June 17, 2013, the city commissioned the Nathan Hale, a 36 foot (11 m) Port Security vessel capable of serving search and rescue, firefighting, and constabulary roles.[195][196] Infrastructure[edit]

Yale's Sterling Memorial Library

Hospitals and medicine[edit] The New Haven
New Haven
area supports several medical facilities that are considered some of the best hospitals in the country. There are two major medical centers downtown: Yale – New Haven Hospital
Yale – New Haven Hospital
has four pavilions, including the Yale – New Haven
New Haven
Children's Hospital[197] and the Smilow Cancer Hospital;[198] the Hospital of Saint Raphael is several blocks north, and touts its excellent cardiac emergency care program. Smaller downtown health facilities are the Temple Medical Center located downtown on Temple Street, Connecticut
Connecticut
Mental Health Center/[199] across Park Street from Y-NHH, and the Hill Health Center,[200] which serves the working-class Hill neighborhood. A large Veterans Affairs hospital is located in neighboring West Haven. To the west in Milford is Milford Hospital, and to the north in Meriden is the MidState Medical Center.[201] Yale and New Haven
New Haven
are working to build a medical and biotechnology research hub in the city and Greater New Haven
Greater New Haven
region, and are succeeding to some extent.[citation needed] The city, state and Yale together run Science Park,[202] a large site three blocks northwest of Yale's Science Hill campus.[203] This multi-block site, approximately bordered by Mansfield Street, Division Street, and Shelton Avenue, is the former home of Winchester's and Olin Corporation's 45 large-scale factory buildings. Currently, sections of the site are large-scale parking lots or abandoned structures, but there is also a large remodeled and functioning area of buildings (leased primarily by a private developer) with numerous Yale employees, financial service and biotech companies. A second biotechnology district is being planned for the median strip on Frontage Road, on land cleared for the never-built Route 34 extension.[203] As of late 2009, a Pfizer
Pfizer
drug-testing clinic, a medical laboratory building serving Yale – New Haven
New Haven
Hospital, and a mixed-use structure containing parking, housing and office space, have been constructed on this corridor.[203] A former SNET telephone building at 300 George Street is being converted into lab space, and has been so far quite successful in attracting biotechnology and medical firms.[203] Power supply facilities[edit] Electricity for New Haven
