General Information about New Haven

New Haven is the second- or third-largest municipality[2] in Connecticut, after Bridgeport and possibly Hartford, with a core population of about 124,000 people.[1] "New Haven" may also refer to the wider Greater New Haven area, which has nearly 600,000 inhabitants in the immediate area.[3][4] It is located in New Haven County, on New Haven Harbor, on the northern shore of Long Island Sound.
New Haven was founded in 1638, one of the earliest planned communities in North America.[5] The next year, eight streets were laid out in a grid of four streets by four streets creating what is now commonly known as the "Nine Square Plan,"[6] which is recognized by the American Institute of Certified Planners as a National Historic Planning Landmark. The central common block is the Green, a 16 acre square, now a National Historic Landmark and the center of Downtown New Haven.
