New Haven - Lighthouse Point Professional Review and Guide

"New Haven-Lighthouse Point was one of our first rides, and it's still a favorite. You'll get to see some interesting parts of New Haven, like the Wooster Square area, take a swim with a picnic at New Haven's only public beach, and finish with a ride on a beautifully restored carousel. Things to see: New Haven Green, Morris Cove, Lighthouse Point Park, Pardee Morris House, Wooster Square."

"Although best known for Yale University, New Haven was once an important harbor city during the Industrial Revolution. Eli Whitney, a former Yale student, developed the cotton gin and manufactured firearms in a local factory; the harbor, railroad, and short-lived canal made the city a shipping center for weapons, known as “The Arsenal of America” during the Civil War.

New Haven doesn’t enjoy the same scenic reputation as neighboring shoreline towns, but the city has a number of park properties along the water and a historic district developed during the height of oyster fishing. This route visits several hidden gems, with the centerpiece being Lighthouse Point Park.
Other highlights include a ride along the Quinnipiac River, historic forts, and town parks and greens. This route begins on the northwest corner of the upper New Haven Green, on Chapel Street, by the Pierre Lallement plaque."
