New Haven, Connecticut is rich in history of innovation and artistry. Known as the Elm City, thanks to a mention by author Charles Dickens, New Haven combines the urban sophistication of nearby New York City and Boston, with the charm of traditional New England. The city is best explored on foot and easily navigated through a network of pedestrian-friendly streets.
The downtown area offers several opportunities to experience world and local cultures. The city has a deep-rooted history in one-of-a-kind performances. The recently expanded Yale University Art Gallery houses a diverse collection of more than 185,000 works, while the Yale Center for the British Art features the largest and most comprehensive collection of British art outside of the United Kingdom. ArtSpace, the contemporary gallery spotlighting the work of both regional and local artists anchors the Historic 9th Square District.
New Haven’s theatre scene is unmatched thanks to the Shubert Theatre, home of many Rodgers and Hammerstein world premieres, the Tony-award-winning Long Wharf and Yale Repertory Theaters, and home-grown theater companies like A Broken Umbrella Theater.
