It is about an hour away by car. CT Limo offers shuttle service to New Haven.

Newark Liberty International Airport, in northern New Jersey, is also a major international airport. Take the Amtrak train that goes straight to New Haven Union Station, or a Metro North train from Grand Central Terminal (take the NJ Transit to Penn Station, and then the subway to Grand Central).

From New Haven Union Station take a cab to your final destination. There is a cab stand right in front of the main entrance. (Union Station isn’t located in the best of neighborhoods, so walking to downtown, especially at night, is not necessarily a great idea.)
York Street Noodle House 166 York St. A decent Chinese noodle house with inexpensive but tasty dishes. The service can be less than perfect.
Lalibela 176 Temple St. New Haven’s Ethiopian restaurant. All dishes are served with a tasty sourdough flatbread by friendly servers. Very affordable lunch buffet.
Claire’s Corner Copia 1000 Chapel St. Claire’s Corner Copia has been a New Haven institution since 1975, and with good reason. Famous for exclusively organic food and delicious cakes mounded high with homemade buttercream frosting.
Firehouse 12 45 Crown St. An old, converted fire-house, this bar has a trendy, modern feel, and also features jazz on weekend nights. Thursday nights they have cheap beer specials.
