I'll relocate to CT in June from Switzerland, and I thought that Milford or Hamden will be the two places to take in consideration (I've also looked at Milford).Yesterday a friend of mine told me about North Haven.
Is there anybody that can help me with some informations on North Haven?
Thanks in advance!

North Haven doesn't have that much going on. A lot of industries and residential areas with many chain stores (Target, Home Depot, etc.) but not a lot of good restaurants and no nightlife to speak of. For that you would have to go to New Haven, Milford or Hamden.

Thumbs up North Haven

I have lived in North Haven for 15 year. I love North Haven alot because of it is close to New Haven. This is great if your looking for a nightlife expreiece. If your planning to move to North Haven or East Haven let me tell you that the two towns are like Little Italy with both towns having the highest population of Italian Americans of any other town in CT and one of the highest in the country. East Haven is and North Haven is estimated to have a Italian population near 65- 70%. I dont this that people are segrated against though. North Haven is a great town right on the city line and I would recommend it to anybody.

Depends on what you are looking for(night life, suburbs, shopping, schools, etc), where you are going to work, and how much you want to spend on(condo, apartment, house). Can you give some more particulars?

North Haven is a pretty good place to live. In general i'de say its rated above east haven, hamden, north branford (neighboring towns). Im not too sure on the school system, but id guess its fairly decent. Crime doesnt seem to be of a major concern there. If your looking to nighlife, Downtown new haven is THE SPOT. Theres about 20+ bars/club in about a 2 block radius.. plus restraunts, stores and the famous YALE UNIVERSITY.

I grew up in North Haven. It is a nice suburban town of middle-class people for the most part. The schools were good and usually score well on overall tests. It is about a 15 minute drive to New Haven. Not a lot going on in the town itself. I would say it is a good place to raise a family. North Branford IMO is a little more rural but still a suburb. I would say that East Haven is a little less desirable as there seems to be a little more crime and the schools aren't as great in my opinion. Hamden has nice areas and not so nice areas. I would say that the schools are on par with North Haven. Wealthier towns around the area include Woodbridge and Cheshire.
