Our home is part of a 1964 modernist townhouse complex built during the early years of urban renewal in Wooster Square in New Haven, CT. The entire two floors of our home were renovated recently (by the previous owners) and so while the building is historic, the interior is brand-new in terms of the bathrooms (2) and kitchen, the floors and the rest of the place. When we moved in in 2020, we bought all new furniture, so everything is up-to-date here for your visit. We have three bedrooms--one we use as a master bedroom, the other as a guest room and a TV room and office (these are large rooms on 2nd floor). The third bedroom is an office only set-up on the ground floor. Outside, the previous owner was a landscape architect so the front patio is full of beautiful flora and the back patio opens up onto a large, private, shared courtyard where it is possible to barbecue or enjoy the sun in chairs among the trees and flowers. Go out the back gate or front door and you are in Wooster Square Park. Our home has central heat and air conditioning too to keep you warm or cool as the season requires. We have a dog, so if you are allergic, this may not be the place for you!
Wooster Sq. is the old Italian neighborhood in New Haven, a ten minute walk to Yale and the New Haven Green, but almost all residential, and centered around the greenery of Wooster Sq. Park. Though most of the original immigrant Italian families have long departed from the neighborhood, Wooster Sq. is home to New Haven's (in fact, some would say the United States') best pizza or as we call it here apizza. The neighborhood is quiet except for the chirping of birds in the courtyard.
Coming for a visit to Yale University or looking to explore New England? New Haven is half-way between New York and Boston, accessible by commuter rail to Grand Central Station in NYC (2 hours) or to Boston by Amtrak (2.5 hours). New Haven was founded in 1638 making it one of the USA's original colonial towns. Rich in American history, it's the location of one of the countries premier universities, with art galleries, theaters, libraries. The city is on New Haven Harbor, close to many beautiful beaches and within short drives to the countryside for hiking or walking.
Wooster Sq. was the old Italian neighborhood in the city, and our block shows the traces of that history with the former Italian consulate on the corner, and many Italian restaurants, bakeries and pizzerias nearby. Wooster Sq is dominated by the park of the same name, providing a green oasis in the midst of the city. Our apartment is within a few minutes of the New Haven Green (5-7 minutes) and Yale (10 minutes) on foot, yet the neighborhood is mainly residential.
