New Haven has been home to Yale University for nearly three centuries. As a center for business and a mecca for the arts, New Haven is recognized as a city of innovation, culture and prosperity. Approximately 20 square miles with nearly 130,000 residents, New Haven is conveniently located between Boston and New York. As former Yale President Richard C. Levin, a thirty-year resident of New Haven, notes, New Haven is "large enough to be interesting, yet small enough to be friendly."
