Is this town safe?

Are people generally friendly?

Is this its own town, or a FW suburb?

I'm there on business frequently, it's a very safe town. Has its own police department. People are generally friendly. I'd say it's family-friendly. They have a nice library. An older Kroger store is on the edge lf town. Small businesses there tend to do well if not thrive, they get a lot of folks from over the state line besides locals.

From downtown FW to downtown New Haven is about 5 miles.

Only thing people might take issue with there that I could think of are the trains. They tend to block roads in town from time to time.

Another consideration might be schools, I don't know how well rated the schools are in New Haven.

It borders on its south westside with some of the seedier parts of Ft Wayne, but honestly, that is more of the rural or the industrial parts of New Haven in that area.

The commercial district, downtown, and most housing is more than far enough away from there to not have to worry about crime. The few times I've been through there I've never felt unsafe. And really in the "seedier" parts of Ft Wayne near the border with New Haven I've never felt unsafe in either.

I do really like some of their parks like Moser. And they have a great connection point to the Maumee River Trail which goes all the way into downtown Ft Wayne.

New Haven feels like it's own town. It really hasn't, and even SouthEast Ft Wayne area haven't, seen the growth explosion that you have more on the North and West sides. Maybe because of 469 constraints, border with Ohio, or other factors. I also don't know much about the schools so maybe that is why it hasn't exploded in growth. It has a quaint downtown with several blocks of more local shops/restaurants/bars.

You can get to downtown Ft Wayne fairly quickly or it's not far to 469 for getting around to other parts of Ft Wayne or big cities if needed (though it adds to your commute vs western Ft Wayne suburbs. It definitely has a slower feel to it than Ft Wayne. As HowardRoarke mentioned trains CAN be a nuisance but most of the town, other than downtown, is south of the train tracks.

All in all I don't think it'd be a bad place. I haven't interacted with enough people to tell you if friendly or not, but in general it's not a bad area.

I have extended family in New Haven, they've lived there for close to 30 years. In my experience, New Haven feels more like a small town adjacent to Fort Wayne than a suburb of Fort Wayne. They've never expressed any concern about crime, and I've never felt unsafe when I've been there. Seems like a pretty ordinary small Indiana town to me.
