New Haven – A Lively, Small Urban Center


The City of New Haven, a lively, small urban center between New York City and Boston, offers many diversions.

Cultural attractions and outdoor recreation are plentiful for such a small New England city.

Yale is the one place where going to law school doesn’t mean sitting on the sidelines; it means making headlines.”
