A small city in Southern Connecticut that is being bought out by Yale University. There are rich sections like Beaver Hill, Westville, East Rock, The Cove, and of course the Yale area. Then there are the hoods, The Ville, Hill, Tre, Tribe, Jungle, Eastern Circle, the G, the 2-5, and some others I forgot. Downtown is full of boutiques and stores at which only Yalies shop. There are tons of public high schools and one prep school, Hopkins. It is ghetto and there are gangs and drugs on every corner but out of state gangsters don't respect the hustling that is going on in New Haven. I wouldn't either, lol. It's pretty safe. Sure it's no Southport, but people shouldn't be afraid of it.

A cool city in Connecticut, feels kind of like a scaled down mix of Philly and Brooklyn, has some bad areas but many nice areas as well. New Haven is also home to one of the most prestigious schools in the world, Yale University, and has great art, music, and food.
I live in New York and New Haven pizza is worth the drive.
