A Brief History of New Haven
- With a population of over 130,000 residents, New Haven is the second-largest city in the state of Connecticut. Founded in 1638, New Haven grew slowly. By the first census in 1790, the city only had a population of 4,000 residents, but during the 19th century the introduction of manufacturing to the New England region helped New Haven grow considerably. Today, however, manufacturing is only part of the city’s economy; its largest employer as well as largest taxpaying entity is Yale University. The city is known for being an Ivy League college town because of this, and while Yale is the biggest employer and tax payer in the state it is not the sole income generating location in the city. New Haven actually has quite a diverse economy despite the fact that such a large University is located within the state. You can find out more about New Haven via this link.
What to Expect When Shipping to or from New Haven
- Like Bridgeport, which sits just a bit southwest of New Haven, the city sits right along Interstate 95, the most important north-south interstate in the eastern U.S. and one of the most heavily-traveled in the entire country. I-95 links much of the population centers of New England with those of states south of them. I-95 runs through sixteen states in all, starting in Miami, Florida and heading north through cities such as Orlando, Jacksonville, Richmond, Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York City, Boston, and on up into the northern parts of New England. New Haven is not the most popular transport location but the fact that it sits right along I-95 helps transporters get to and from the city more easily, which in turn keeps prices a bit lower. Winter shipping in or out of New Haven will likely be more expensive, as the city – and the entire region – sees snow pretty much annually.
