Parking very limited

Lots of nice shops and restaurants. Only problem is trying to find a parking space. Lots of metered parking, but all were taken.

Chapel Street has lots to look at - many restaurants, coffee shops, book stores and much history as well. Be sure to drop in at Jo jo's for an amazing choice of tea and also Insomnia Cookies for late night cookie cravings!

This is really nice Street with many possibilities - you can rest in the park nearby, eat marvellous food in many restaurants, have a drink in multiple bars and pubs, buy souvenirs or food and pray in the church. Good starter for New Haven visitors :-)

High crime in this area. No police around. Good place to get purse or cell phone snatched. I park as close as possible run in the store and leave fast. I try to avoid down town New Haven as much as possible.

I left it to my son in grad school at Yale to plan our visit to include what he wanted to see more of, and Chapel Street and the area surrounding it became "our neighborhood" for a full day; historic buildings, greens, shopping, bars and restaurants all within a walkable area. And the company was good. ;)

Take a walk on Chapel near the Yale Gallery of Art. There is plenty of nice buildings to look at; the Yale Art Repertory is also on this street. Plenty of all types of eateries and easily available parking on Chapel and cross streets makes it possible to spend enjoyable time on this street.

Take a walk during day or night, it's a piece of history, art and full of small local stores, restaurants, Yale and the magic of this New England's town..

A very beautiful street that takes you back in time. Every building is truly unique, and I would highly recommend it for everyone who enjoys taking a stroll and checking out some amazing architecture. A must see in New Haven (in my humble opinion).
