Wooster Square  is a neighborhood full of historic charm and very proud of its Italian American heritage, culture and cuisine.  Much of the neighborhood and the square are included in the Wooster Square Historic District which was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1971.

Home to not just New Haven but the world’s best known pizza is Sally’s Apizza and Frank Pepe Pizzeria.  Many other fine restaurants can also be found on Wooster Street along with Libby’s Italian Bakery known for its scrumptious Italian pastries and Italian ice. 

The archway is an iconic image of the gateway to Wooster Street designed by sculptor Gar Waterman in the late 90’s.

Wooster Square is one of the most sought after New Haven neighborhoods in which to live with its neighborhood feel, architecture and walkability to Downtown New Haven.
