Default Dwight St

First- you can absolutely walk to downtown from Dwight St. It blends into the downtown area within a few minutes walk.

Second- there are a lot of overblown racial fears in the perceptions of New Haven being unsafe and a lot of that has to do with white/black racial prejudices.

That being said the West River area where the responder mentioned where St Raphael's Hospital is on up toward Ella Grasso Blvd has unfortunately had too much crime and gun violence in recent years. That is a working neighborhood with good people, but with the crime.

The West River neighborhood is away from Dwight St. Dwight St in recent years has received those urban over-lit night lights which gives certain blocks an extra visibility when you are out at night. True, like any urban area you have to be street smart. Walking around wearing your I-pod, on your cell jogging at night makes you stand out.

Finally, while Whalley Ave makes the news farther out of downtown for gunfire, too, while the person is talking about the Staples and Shaws moving out- remember that a massive Stop and Shop just opened there this months as a result of a very strong community group including the Dwight Neighborhood Corp. and a new Apple Store is being built on Broadway where Whalley end (near one part of Dwight).

See what you think- before listening to all these posts. It's not a first choice area like Orange St, but it's not as bad as these posts make it seem.
