What Bert Has To Say About New Haven-Milford Metro Area

A city of contrasts, New Haven is a mix of colonial history, Ivy League college town, and past-its-prime industrial center. Once an important manufacturing center, it is known today as the home of prestigious Yale University. The first planned city in the American Colonies, New Haven was laid out in 1638 in nine equal squares. The New Haven Green, a square reserved for the public, is now a pedestrian area surrounded by stately trees, the Yale campus, and an assortment of museums and architecturally significant homes and churches. The downtown is generally clean and attractive and is known for its large number of trees.
