The green is a neat place to visit. It can be a bit scary at times, but it looks so beautiful when all lit up for winter with the tree and occasional carnival.

It's pretty nice to have a green in a city. This is an average sized green, with paved walkways. Street meter parking if you can get a spot. A second visit here this day, first was at Christmas to see the city tree, which was just chocked full of led lights. This warm winter day was a stroll of the... More

I find the New Haven Green to be your average large park/commons int he middle of the city. It's a nice field of green, with trees, a fountain, and churches. Throughout the year, particularly in the summer, there are concerts and events held on the green. Nice to walk around, but I wouldn't go out of my way to see... More

I love coming to New Haven for the holidays to visit family and visit the many places i frequented as a nurse at Yale New Haven Hospital. The Christmas tree is one of the things I especially love to enjoy from my suite at the Omni Hotel.

Great place to relax and enjoy the view. During the warmer weather there are many fairs and musicians performing. It is a great place to picnic with the family.

The green is lovely, especially during the day. Three churches are directly on the green, and it is a good stop to pick up the local bus. During the year, various festivals are held on the green and it is a nice place to picnic. That said, be aware and always protect your personal safety. At night, you should be... More

After some improvement has taken a slide again with public drinking, peeing and panhandling. New Haven now replacing police chief so we hope for better days with no vagrants to annoy people who viisit the Green. It is so bad now the vagrants even go up to the front of the Church Street court house and sleep there. You have... More

The Puritans measured the settlement of New Haven's Town Green to hold 144,000 people, because that was the number of souls prophesied to be saved in the Rapture--and the town fathers wanted a good spot for the airlift.When Hurricane Sandy descended in the fall of 2012, an upturned oak revealed at its roots a skeleton likely dating to Colonial times,...

The New Haven Green is a very nice place during the day. its nothing amazing, but if you're in the mood for a good walk it works very well. however, i do not recommend anyone go here at night. some of the people who hang around aren't the best.

This green has seen a lot of demonstrations, especially in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It is not the Central Park of Manhattan by any means, it is just a small plot of grass in the middle of a modest town. But it is very typical of the town greens of New England. Along one side is the main... More
