    Spot Name: New Haven, CT: Downtown New Haven/ Yale University

    Conditions: Grid layout of downtown New Haven and Yale’s main campus. Modern architecture gives way to large stone and concrete plazas with concrete ledges, benches, walls, staircases and gaps. Handicap ramps and railings are numerous. Hazards: During a weekday or school day (Yale) their can be lots of people in spots. Some ledges can get pretty sandy/slippery making for rough landings/vaulting. Located in a very urban downtown making most spots lit for night jamming.

    Plod: City is very quiet on the weekends. The Becton Auditorium Plaza has spectators but is free of security. The Memorial Hall/Beinecke Plaza has had security present in the past and you shoud just move on and they will not bother you, the same is true for the Shubert Parkouring Garage and Federal Buildings Plaza.

    Supplies: A SUBWAY is located at the corner of Temple St. and Chapel St. A STARBUCKS is located on the corner of Chapel St. and Church Street. DUNKIN DONUTS is located a bit farther down Church St. away from the green. A water fountain can be found inside Memorial Hall under the big dome on Yale’s campus.

    Overall: I would give New Haven a 9/10 because of the wide range of obstacles in the city for every level of training. Every spot I list can be found in one square mile. I would compare the quality of the terrain in New Haven to Northeastern or downtown Boston.

    Directions: By car: here. By train: here. By bus: here. PARKING: here.
