“Nice place”
Reviewed 31 January 2014

Nice place for a little picnic. I'm not sure if you can, but I believe you can picnic on the green itself. There was a 5K so after it we had a little picnic with all the gathered goodies on the green. It was nice.

“A Historic Site Loss to History”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

The Green was laid out by the founders; it is said that New Haven was the first planned community. However, now it is covered with so many people smoking, dogs, and litter that one time through it was enough for me. Guess it is where all the people who still smoke go because they can't smoke inside any of the building in the area. I recognize the trade off.

“Classic”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

beautiful urban green.
while the buses need to be relocated so some of the areas can be more opened up, the general atmosphere is one of history and good design

“A beautiful greenspace”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

A nice place to sit and relax, or to listen to concerts and other frequent performance. But there are also numbers of vagrants hanging around, which detracts a little from the pleasant experience.

The New Haven Green is located downtown and is surrounded by nice architectural Yale buildings in the downtown area. Nice concerts. Good place to relax.
