New Haven skyline pictures feature the second-largest city in Connecticut. The city has historical importance, as many elements of American city planning had their foundations here. During the 1600s, the "Nine Square Plan" street layout of New Haven was revolutionary and today, is recognized as a National Planning Landmark. In addition, many blocks within the city's downtown are listed as National Historic Landmarks. New Haven also had the first public tree-planting program in the United States.
This city is an important element of American culture that should not be passed over. With architectural landmarks dating from every time period and construction style in U.S. history, a number of museums and centers for the performing arts, theatre and film, the influence of New Haven continues to make its mark on panoramas of U.S. city skylines to this day.
