A more than random and much less than exhaustive list of things to see and do…

Cityseed Farmer’s Market – operates four days a week in neighborhood locations, the first and largest is in Wooster Square at the Corner of Chapel Street and DePalma Court, every Saturday from 9:00 am –1:00 pm

New Haven Museum: 112 Whitney Avenue, adjacent to campus, with a good collection and interesting special events, including the Tour de New Haven bike ride on September 20

Criterion Cinemas: 86 Temple Street between Crown and George Streets, seven screens showing first-run box office hits and art films

Ninth Square (bounded by Church/Chapel/State/George between the Green and train station)
