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.

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).

The Yale Art Gallery and the British Art Center, a good bookstore/café, a bunch of pretty good restaurants, two good jewelers and some eclectic clothing stores - there's enough to keep you busy for a whole day on just a few short blocks.

So many nice, great places and so little time. The new New Haven is interesting to be sure. It's been YEARS since I was here so to see so many kinds of restaurants and shops to choose from and even find some old ones on Chapel, like my old comic book store still open. I went in and got a... More
