The local economy has a lot of STEAM – with science, technology, education, arts, and medicine as key drivers.

New Haven has professional theater, practicing architects, new and classical music concerts, outdoor festivals, and free world-class art museums unmatched by any city of similar size in the country. It also has 376 years of history – seen in its town green and architecture spanning three centuries – and nature is always nearby, with beaches, hiking trails, parks and farms not far from the city center. Such recreational opportunities are beneficial, given that New Haven is also a great restaurant town – from fine dining to the best pizza anywhere. For additional information, visit NHFPL Links.
