Walk New Haven Guides Available.

Walk New Haven Cultural Heritage tour guides are now available online at this location. At $10, this is very reasonable, and also look quite like a collectors item. From their website:

"This Walk New Haven: Cultural Heritage Tours guide is part of a series created by the Ethnic Heritage Center (EHC). Although some of the buildings described are no longer standing, their stories remain. This self-guided walking/biking/driving tour tells the pre-1970 stories of the experiences, contributions and hardships faced in New Haven by five of the cultural and ethnic groups that have enriched our community. A major goal of the EHC is to stimulate an interest among the many additional cultural groups in New Haven to form historical societies to preserve and share their histories. This book is part of that process. A responsive project website ( includes additional sites important to our cultural groups."

The downtown guide says that it's presently being prepared, but Lower Dixwell and Wooster Square are available.

Walk New Haven is presented by the Ethnic Heritage Center on the campus of Southern Connecticut State University. They also offer a walking tour around the green. There's a number for that.
