New Haven — often referred to as the “Elm City” — is the second largest city in Connecticut. The city is one of the great educational powerhouses of the world, playing host to the renowned Yale University. In fact, Yale serves as New Haven’s largest employer. New Haven also boasts an impressive biomedical industry and is known as the birthplace of both the hamburger and American pizza. These factors culminate to attract countless tourists each year as the Haven — located on the shores of the Long Island Sound — is the undisputed cultural center in the state of Connecticut. New Haven’s resurgence has enticed Alexion — the second-most innovative company in the world, according to Forbes — to return to the city with a downtown world headquarters.
