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.

"Please girl, you're crazy, nothing is going to happen to you. You can get shot in Westport too."

In New Haven you are never farther than a mile from something Yale owns.

the moat of hoboes, black people, and crazies that surrounds yale university. after about 11:00 pm it it extremely dangerous to go out alone, due to the frequent stabbings, shootings, rapes, and assaults that occur there.
i go to yale, but got stabbed when i ignored a hobo's cry for spare change in new haven.
