Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The green is a nice place to gather during the day. It is surrounded by some nice buildings that are nice to photograph and explore. At night the area seems a little sketchy though.

The New Haven Green is a nice spot downtown to grab some fresh air and/or people watch. More than that, though, the Green has an interesting role in the city's history going back to the original city layout and up to the present day.

A lovely park to relax in. Close to the centre of New Haven and easy to access. Lots of lovely spots to sit.

This is a wonderful place to go for a stroll, enjoy the nice weather, people watch, and enjoy many of the numerous activities that are held here. They have concerts here in the summer, and over the holidays it's a great way to look at the lights. There are a lot of restaurants and shopping opportunities nearby, especially as Yale is so close. Yale, and the historically-planned Green, give this area a lovely settled feeling. When school is in session, there are a lot of students lounging on the green or playing frisbee.

This is a classic downtown New England town green; with a row of three churches that date back to Colonial times. A dedicated city cleaning crew has kept the Green relatively neat and suitable for walking. Lots of surrounding shops & restaurants.

New Haven, regardless of the Yale presence, would not necessarily be considered very safe.

The green is plesent enough, on a recent outing there the more seedy side of the city was appearent. Our children were subjected to some pretty vile language. Confronting the unruly people would only have escslated the situation. Expecting any asistance from the police Is futile as they were too busy oogling the college age girls.

We will stay away from here in the future.

The New Haven Green is a large park property that no one has ever done much with to enhance the property!! People come from all over the world and what is there that is special? NOTHING!! In Europe, parks are central places of beauty!! What happened here? The Proprietors of the Green should think about this---make it more welcoming and beautiful! There are no beautiful spring flowering bulbs everywhere or lively blooming azaleas/rhododendrons-- an area for children? It's not even lit at night!! Instead the darkness creates an unsafe feeling. C'mon!!! This should be the centerpiece of the City and it is far from that!!!
I pay plenty of taxes in the City and would like to see the park be a welcoming and inspiring place!!!

Any drug you could possibly want can be found on the green. Temple St. and Chapel are a filth laden display of homeless derelicts, drunks and addicts. If gawking at the dregs of humanity is your thing then this is the place to go.
The Green at one time was a wonderful area to sit and read, enjoy a summer afternoon...not anymore. It is panhandler's paradise and the area is filthy.
Drugs and alcohol and the lack of police attention has led to a terrifying place.
Getting the bus hub off the chapel St. area would help a lot to getting rid of vile element.

Wanting to take advantage of the nice day, my husband, daughter, and I walked around Yale University and the New Haven Green.

It's too bad that such a nice green space in the city felt unsafe. We saw a couple of drug deals go down at the bus stop, as well as numerous peddlers begging for money. Not the kind of place I want to take my kids. Yuck.
