Leafy Streets. Local Gems. Lush Parks.

Just minutes from downtown and steps from many of Yale’s graduate school campuses is East Rock, home of Corsair. Here in the neighborhood, quiet side streets give way to State Street, the main drag of restaurants, cafés, and shops that tend to have just the right amount of bustle. This nook of New Haven is settled along a crook in the Mill River and just below the steep cliffs of its namesake—a dramatic ridge of trap rock rising above the city. With a 427-acre park on one side and downtown on the other, East Rock is the best place to live in New Haven.
