Observer keeps saying New Haven is more unsafe that other urban areas and it has been neglected as if saying it repeatedly will make it true. That is nonsense. Yes, New Haven is in an urban area, so is Cambridge for that matter, and New Haven still has deep challenges, including in certain areas, but New Haven's crime rate has gone DOWN. The area surrounding the campus is more than "there have been efforts" and they are inadequate. The area has not only vastly improved, it is booming -the restaurant scene alone is amazing, not to mention the cultural scene with theaters and art galleries. There is construction everywhere with new apartments. Real estate rates are going up and up as people want to move back into town -we considered and are considering a condo there ourselves, although it is expensive, as we have come to love it -between New York and Boston, close to New York, easy access to the shoreline on the coast and also to the Berkshires. Streets are crowded day and night with shoppers, visitors etc. The campus looks beautiful -the fully renovated colleges, and the two new ones look tremendous from the quick glance I got going through town from the outside (though few I think have been inside yet). This man's continuing barraging of Yale is weird. I guess it must be envy: if you dismiss a thing you ignore it. But Observer's repeated attention, often with wholly inaccurate information, prove something else must be going on.
