Yale looks as great as advertised. The architecture looks more cohesive than Princeton's, at least from your pictures.
I think what sets Yale apart is not only the cohesiveness of the architecture but also the urban nature with which the campus was designed. Most collegiate gothic campuses in America are set against a pastoral landscape (by design) whereas Yale, from its inception, was developed in the Oxford model.

By the way, the neo-gothic tradition is alive and well. Here's a link to a webcam of Yale's newest residential college currently under construction: http://newresidentialcolleges.yale.edu/

Thanks for the revisit to New Haven.

Spent some time there and the restaurant scene is as advertised by the other posts.

Out of the Ivy League schools I've visited, Yale was my favourite campus.

My dad always used to say New Haven was kind of a dangerous, seedy city (where he had that idea, I have no idea - maybe he meant Hartford). These pictures don't depict that!

I visit in the early 90’s and I won’t say it was seedy, but it certainly wasn’t what I expected being a college town, I’m mainly speaking of the downtown area. Back then I didn’t have GPS, and I asked a cashier at a drugstore inside an indoor mall downtown how to get to Yale and he act as if he didn’t know of a University (Yale) in the area.

Needless to say I never did find it driving around the city. I know I should have planned better, because I didn’t even have a city map, just a state map. Besides I was coming back from Hartford, and driving back to NYC.

My best high school buddy was a Yalie, class of 1967. I helped him move into his room there and explored the campus a good deal in 1963 when we were both college freshmen. The campus was as nice as you might expect and, frankly, it didn't seem necessary to wander far from there and what of the rest of the town could be seen from there looked fine. But I imagine it got edgy in some parts.

By the way, let's face it, New Haven is part of the tri-state Pizza Heaven so how bad could it be what with the Western Hemisphere's best pizza readily available.

Well, I wouldn't have wanted to run into this guy at a party.

It looks reasonably intact, but like most older American cities, it seems to have really suffered from road widening projects, etc. Those streets downtown and around campus should all be one lane each way with no street parking.

And being there I felt that it’s not nearly as intact as it should be, both because of parking lots and urban renewal, with the latter including misguided postwar attempts by the university to build “modern” facilities (read: hideous, out-of-scale brutalism). Bunch of big parking garages too.

The sad thing is, as remuddled as the city is, New Haven is by far the most intact city in Connecticut. I dunno why my home state suffered so badly during the urban renewal era. Providence is only a little bigger than the major Connecticut cities, but a lot more of its old urban core survived.

Edward Logue, basically the Robert Moses of New Haven, was responsible for all that urban renewal. He later did the same to Boston and Upstate NY. He was considered very progressive and enlightened.

In terms of urbanism, it was better to be poor and neglected during the period 1945-1970.

you don't like the yale center for british art? you'd prefer more faux-gothic?
