Especially around New Haven. I have some questions/concerns about it. Does anyone here live in that area? I'm looking into it and am very thrown by what appears to be extremely high crime stats. Daughter has her mind set on college out there and I'm reading stuff about the mayor needing voted out, a mom shot in the face by a stray bullet just driving her young son through town, seven shootings in one night, a ridiculously high number of robberies closely followed by high numbers of rapes. Some of these are being posted in the New Haven forum, but the statistics gathered per capita lead me to believe that a lot of what they're saying is not just exaggerated the facts. This really concerns me and I'd like to get more information before I start discouraging her from the school she's got her heart set on and has been working her tail off to get into. There ARE other ones, hopefully in better areas. I was really shocked that this particular area would be so rough though.
