New Haven, CT (+uptown NYC filler)

East Rock Park is a rocky outcropping on the northern edge of New Haven, Connecticut.



Nice view, although the sun was too sunny

New Haven is a very interesting city, and worthy of a much more in-depth tour. Every time I am there, however, I seem to be passing through briefly on my way somewhere else. Here's a few shots from late December of 2007. I like it better in the winter.

Here are some random shots in and around New York to fill out the thread a bit

I stayed a couple of days in New Haven in 1982. From these photos, it looks very much the same. The landscape was really nice around the city, as the photos show. There were some great neighborhoods and also some really scary ones close to downtown. My favorite memory is the seafood we had in New Haven (and anywhere on the East Coast, for that matter).

Great shots. I grew up about 10 miles outside of New Haven, so these were fun to look at. Thanks!

Stunning campus at Yale -- the best in the US.

Nice pictures. I remember seeing that port whenever driving to Cape Cod as a kid. I always thought that that was an interesting thing to look at on the way.

I like NH, I go there quite often. It's a satellite city of NYC also, situated at the end of the NYC metropolitan area too. It has some well known restaurants.

Never been to New Haven, but hope to visit some day. Nice tour and great skyline shots. I didn't realize there was such a change in elevation for the area. Thanks for stopping long enough to get these shots.

Great pics! Thanks for the CT represenatation. New Haven is a great city although I see it as part of its own metropolitan area and not a satellite city of NYC - even though it has very easy access to NYC.

New Haven has improved significantly over the last 20 or so years thanks mostly to Yale. There is a great variety of downtown retail (including well known chains mixed with locally owned and operated shops). There are tons of restaurants, coffee shops, bars and clubs. Downtown has seen the addition of many new places to live. And despite the recession the city is holding its own. Yale continues work on a new cancer center in the city, a new residential skyscraper is under construction and numerous hotels are under construction or have recently opened.

Love that little city. I'm on the fence about whether or not it's part of greater New York City. I know people who commute back and forth and it's just so easy to get to on MetroNorth.

It's always been considered part of the greater NYC or metropolitan area on data. http://www.answers.com/topic/new-york-metropolitan-area It is listed there also.
