mom and dad need help!

by leigh58

we are the parents of a son who has been granted a live audition at the Opera Dept. of Yale!!!! we are so happy, but just 1 thing- we are from central illinois, the armpit of the nation. We know nothing of big city life and such. We 3 will be flying up and staying the weekend in February, wondering if it would be better to take a taxi around all weekend, of just rent a car at the airport? Isthere anything we must, or must NOT do? thank you!

I don't know that I'd call New Haven "big city life." I guess it depends on what you're used to.
There aren't a ton of cabs in New Haven, even around Yale, so renting a car would be best.
There are two New Haven culinary landmarks that people will push you toward: the first pizza and the first hamburger. It's up for argument whether or not they are what they say they are. The first pizza place is in the Italian section of town known as Wooster Square.
The burger place is right by Yale's central campus and is called Loris' Lunch:
There's actually a New Haven style pizza place just across the street from there called BAR. I've eaten there, and it's good, but I can't say that I'm big on their style of pizza.
The Amistad ship is also in New Haven, there are a few good museums and you've got what's known as West Rock:

I agree that renting a car will give you the best option, as New Haven will not have "big city" public transportation conveniences. The only thing I would add is to make sure you don't drive your rental into NYC. And by the way, I thought NJ was the "armpit of America?"

Travel Tips for New Haven


by zChris

Yale's campus includes some immaculate greenspaces, in particular the lush yard of Old Campus, pictured here. It is a particular pleasure to wander through them on a crisp autumn morning or lazy spring afternoon, when the trees are at their most brilliant.

Famous sculpture "Lipstick"

by SLLiew

Located at Morse College is the infamous "Lipstick" sculpture. It is "mounted" on a 'tank."

It was full of symbolism but what does it stand for depends on whom you talk to.

Note: superimposed with a picture of American revolutionary hero "Nathan Hale", Yale Class 1773.


by zChris

Though their utility lies in keeping curious tourists like yourself and I from intruding upon the inner courtyards of Yale's famous residential colleges, Yale's gates are as unique and extraordinary as each one of its buildings. This specimen, though far from my favourite, is quite intricate, and guards the entrance to Trumbull College yard.

Contemporary architecture style

by SLLiew

Both Morse College (named after the inventor of Morse Code) and Ezra Stiles (US 7th Presdent, a Yale 1746 graduate) were built on contemporary style by the famous architect Eero Saarinen.

Eero used rubble mansonry with many split levels, sharp corners and angles that reminds him of the buildings of a hill town in northern Italy.

The photo shows a popular passage way between the two colleges from York Street to Payne Whitney Gymnasium.

Note: superimposed is a picture of early American hero Nathan Hale, Yake Class of 1773.

Jim Morrison, lead singer of...

by Judd

Jim Morrison, lead singer of the Doors, was arrsted here in New Haven, it has been referenced in the song 'Peace Frog' Blood in the streets in the town of New Haven...' and even managed to make it into the Oliver Stone movie The Doors. Never mind that Mr. Stone got the year wrong, it was 1967, not 1968.
