“Things to see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Couple of museums to look at -- British art and general art (2 museums) as well as a couple famous architecture buildings that are open to the public; the campus is very pleasant for walking around; however beware that New Haven is in general a very rough city with high crime and you have to keep an eye out and not wander too far from the prescribed paths onto the proscribed ones

“Historic world educator”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

I love Yale University. The architecture is incredible. The history of the university is linked closely with the history of the city of New Haven. The people who have graduted from Yale are a who's who in almost every aspect of the world from politics, to business, banking, and acting.

“Amazing Architecture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

I was in New Haven for a professional meeting, but found some time to walk around the Yale Campus and view the extraordinary architecture. There are several modern buildings, such as the Beinecke Library and the Art and Architecture building, but the gothic style predominates and just beautiful. Don't miss the Sterling library and its lovely interior.
