New Haven is the
second-largest city in Connecticut after
Bridgeport (and just barely larger than
Hartford). It is in New Haven County, on New
Haven Harbor, on the northern coast of Long
Island Sound. As of the 2000 census, the
city had a total population of 123,626.
New Haven's nickname is the Elm City, as it
historically contained many elm trees. While
most succumbed to Dutch Elm disease in the
middle of the 20th Century, New Haven
nevertheless remains a very 'green' city. It
is considered the first planned city (1638)
in the United States. The city is probably
best known as the home of Yale University.
New Haven lays claim to the introduction of
pizza to the U.S. (see Cuisine) and to the
origination of the Frisbee as a flying toy.
New Haven is one of the most walkable cities
in the country, ranking near the top of the
list of places with the most pedestrian
commuters. In the past decade or so, the
city has seen a major revitalization,
focused on Downtown New Haven but extending
into many neighborhoods. Hundreds of new
restaurants and shops have opened, filling
the streets with pedestrians, and luxury
residential and condominium construction is
proceeding at a fast clip.
New Haven is the birthplace of current U.S.
President George W. Bush, who was born when
his father, former president George H. W.
Bush, was living in New Haven while a
student at Yale. A predominantly Democratic
city, New Haven voters overwhelmingly
supported Al Gore in the 2000 election and
fellow Yale graduate John Kerry in 2004.
Interstate highway officials made several
attempts to place signs on Interstates 91
and 95 announcing the city as the birthplace
of the current president, but the signs were
subject to rapid vandalism and have been
removed. New Haven was also a temporary home
to former president Bill Clinton and U.S.
Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, who met
while they were students at Yale Law School.
