New Haven, Connecticut | Yale University

Greetings and salutations. I just got back from a trip to Boston (including its satellite town of Cambridge), on the way to which I stopped in New Haven and Hartford.

New Haven is the city where, arguably, the most famous university in the world is located.

Didn't spend a whole lot of time in this town, but the university is very impressive, it's like visiting an old British city, or at least that's how I picture an old British city. The downtown is tiny but decent, it's situated around a central park (I don't know what it's called there). City population is 124,001. It was settled in 1638.

Just an hour after leaving New York and go north you start seeing snow (which is nice).

For some reason in the middle of this small city there is an enormous multilevel parking complex that appears to be empty.

Yale University. I think these are the dorms, might be wrong though.

I expected nothing but a bunch of Bentleys over there, but instead the cars were quite cheap. Perhaps these are owned by the janitors and not the billionaire students.

Central park, came out very dark so had to artificially increase brightness later on, hence the quality.

New Haven really looks like an old English town but I'm very poor in classifying those buildings as to Georgian or Victorian etc.
Those photos from the 3rd to the 10th, is that part of Boston or New Haven?
thanks for sharing them though.
