Crime in New Haven is very high - almost two thirds higher than the national average.
|Yale New Haven Hospital is one of the world's leading teaching hospitals. St. Raphael's Hospital is a first class institution as well. Every type of medical specialty is in great supply in the New Haven area.|
New Haven is at the crossroads of both I 95 and I 91. Tweed Airport is currently under-utilized, but offers very convenient service to Washington and Philadelphia. Union Station offers both AMTRAK and Metro-North railroad service to the rest of the country. New Haven has a high Walk Score of 66.7 from walkscore.com.
Actually, there is no third airlines in Tweed New Haven Airport. New Haven has yet to seduce a third airline to cover Washington and Philadelphia. So, no, there is no services to Washington or Philadelphia. Conflicts over air pollution, noise pollution and runway extension are at odds with residents in Morris Cove. The community is split over (1) Do we want less pollution in Morris Cove? or (2) Bypass environmental harms and go for the money that New Haven needs to help the New Haven Economy.

What people are saying about New Haven
|New Haven not for everyone|
|Thanks for the personal insights into New Haven, and the update on the Ravens. It is definitely not for everyone, in fact it is not for most people. My experience living in a nearby suburb is that my fellow residents are petrified to go into New Haven. Yet the many people I know who live there shake their heads, they love it there. For a contrary point of view see this New York Times article. https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/travel/new-haven-conn-makes-the-transition-from-crime-to-coffee-shops/2014/01/16/144f3ea4-77e9-11e3-b1c5-739e63e9c9a7_story.html?wpisrc=nl_travel|

|I have lived in a suburb or New Haven all of my life. New Haven has the best ranked pizza in the country and among the best Italian food in the country. There is plenty of culture because of Yale, easy access to NYC and Boston. However, the crime is very high, one of the highest per capita in the country. The cost of living is prohibitive, that is why so many from CT move south. I cannot live here in retirement and I have a good income. I am losing faith in your site. Your information is outdated. The Ravens have not been here is a decade. Where did that come from.|

|OMG -- New Haven as a retirement destination? Here\'s the deal about Connecticut cities in general: All 3 large cities have large populations of poor people. They are surrounded by often beautiful suburbs inhabited by rich people. So you have this \"Tale of Two Cities\" situation of rich vs. poor. What\'s more, the cities are expensive to live in. My recollections of New Haven were that it has a wonderful neighborhood around Yale and Albertus Magnus -- and I am sure those properties are worth a ton now, and a fine Italian neighborhood where you can get terrific pizzas (if you like garlic). Beyond that, the \"coast\" is Long Island Sound, which is not as nice as the open ocean in places like, say Rhode Island (which, for my money) is a much better and less expensive place to retire.|
