What are some nice neighborhoods near New Haven or best areas/ quarters in New Haven?


I mean beautiful houses, clean and quite streets, nice, educated neighbors etc.


I heard about East Rock and Milford.




Thanks!

ps. Do you know, how far is Hopkins School from the East Rock or Milford?

The Hopkins School is located in the Westville section of New Haven which is very nice. East Rock would be about 15 minutes across town. Milford would be about 20 minutes depending on where in Milford you live. You don't really give us much information like are you renting or buying. are schools important? More informaiton would help.

I was going to suggest Westville, actually. There are some lovely old homes in that area, with large lots, and a small downtown.

More: We're buying. We're interested in old architecture.
Good finance. Family- two adults, three kids (age: 10, 10 and 6) and dog.
I'm going to work at Yale. Distance to school isn't that important. We just heard about good renown of this Hopkins School. Currently we're living in Chicago (suburbs).

Well if the idea is for you to send your children to private school then you could live in New Haven itself. Like it was noted Westville is nice.

If you were to send your children to public schools then I would recommend one of the neighboring communities like Orange, Milford or Woodbridge. I would also recommend considering the charming shoreline east towns of Branford, Guilford or Madison. Jay

I agree with what Jay recommended in terms of towns for public schools.

If you are going to send your kids to private schools, you might as well spare yourselves the property tax expenses of living in Woodbridge, Orange, Bethany, Madison, Guilford, etc. Instead go with North Haven or New Haven (Westville or East Rock neighborhoods). You could also live in Milford.

In addition to The Hopkins School, which is a very fine school, also consider Choate Rosemary Hall in Wallingford, CT.

Best of luck.

2009 Primary Mil rate in Bethany is 27.55 compared to the mid 40's depending on which area in New Haven you live in. Orange 28.3, Woodbridge is 31.1, North Haven 26.18 and Guilford 20.83.

Choate and Hopkins won't do them any good, their kids won't be old enough to go there for several years. Hopkins starts at 7th grade and Choate doesn't start til 9th (around 13 years old for the first, around 16 years old for the second)

Hamden Hall is a private elementary school, and there are a couple of Montessouri schools in the Greater New Haven area if they want to go that route. Then there are some private schools run by religious organizations, such as St. Rita's and St. Stephen's in Hamden, and Hebrew Day in or near Orange.

I hope the OP will ignore this statement when making his/her decision because it simply is not true. East Rock and Westville are both very nice neighborhoods with relatively low crime - East Rock in particular has many young families who are connected to the university in one way or another and who either send their children to the local public elementary school or to private school. There are also plenty of old houses in the neighborhood with a lot of character.
