Living in New Haven

New Haven is a large city in the US state of Connecticut, the second largest by population and is perhaps best known for being the location of Yale University, one of the country’s Ivy League schools. The city is known by its nickname ‘The Elm City’, as it was the first city to introduce a tree planting scheme which included many elms, which now form a great part of the local scenery and landscape. The city has many impressive examples of architecture and expats living in New Haven will be able to explore sights such as Union Station, the Knights of Columbus building and more, whilst many of the city’s streets feature fascinating buildings. There are also plenty of museums, theaters, cinemas as well as galleries for any expat in New Haven to explore, with the Yale University Art Gallery a particularly popular destination. The city is furthermore known for its restaurants, with plenty of recommended eateries in the city, particularly its pizza restaurants. The city can also offer a thriving nightlife with plenty of bars, clubs and live music.

Moving to New Haven

The cost of living in New Haven is in line with other areas of Connecticut which is higher than the US average, although there are a number of housing options to suit different budgets. Despite this, the city has plenty to offer and therefore is an attractive place to move to. As is the case with other cities in the area, the climate tends to feature hot, humid summers and colder winters, with rain as well as heavy snow likely during the winter months. It is easy for expatriates moving to New Haven to get around the city, with a network of buses and cycle routes available whilst the train service offers direct routes (including commuter trains) to New York City as well as other cities, which are also accessible by road. The schools in the city are recommended for expats moving to New Haven with families, whilst Yale University is considered to be one of the best in the world.
