Living In New Haven

New Haven sits on the water just above the Long Island Sound along the Connecticut shoreline. It is a city filled with energy and hidden gems at every turn. Conveniently located at the intersection of interstates 95 and 91, and with Union Station providing Amtrak service up and down the East Coast, New Haven is easily accessible from all directions. So, while considered a part of the New York Metropolitan area, the short 2-hour drive to Boston, MA, splits locals in their affinity for these two major cities, and their sports teams!

Some History

New Haven is the first planned city in the US and its historic Green, found at its center, is only a short walk from Parents’ Foundations iconic front doors at 100 Broadway. And while Yale University’s presence is found on most blocks, New Haven is also home to robust healthcare, finance, and legal communities, with the biotech industry recently joining the ranks of innovators working in the city and creating for the world.

New Haven boasts being the home of the first steamboat, Eli Whitney’s cotton gin, and most importantly, the original hamburger which was made at Louis’ Lunch. You can still have one of those famous burgers at Louis’ today, made in the original vertical cast-iron broilers. There’s nothing quite like it!

Our Location

Parents’ Foundation is at the center of the action in New Haven. Right down the street is great shopping at Apple, J.Crew, LL Bean, Lulu Lemon, and other local favorites. The city is ranked as one of the top “Foodie Cities” in the nation, with 56 Zagat rated restaurants and incredible international cuisine. The Yale Center for British Art, The Peabody Natural History Museum, and the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Museum, which has an original copy of the Gutenberg Bible make fantastic exhibits accessible, and the Shubert and Yale Repertory theaters are within easy walking distance. The Yale New Haven Hospital Center, a premiere medical facility, is a Parents’ Foundation partner; working with residents in support of their physical and mental health needs and promptly responding if ever there is an urgent medical situation.

The city is also home to beautiful green spaces such as Edgerton Park, East Rock, Sleeping Giant, and The Green. We are also host to fabulous warm-weather festivals, most notably the International Festival of Arts and Ideas and the New Haven Jazz Festival. In short, there is something for everybody in New Haven and at Parents’ Foundation, we are thrilled to take full advantage of our rich, diverse community.
