Wooster Square is Living History  - It's also the scene of lively living
Families relax, the kids play, school groups have recess and games (see photo), and friends of all ages play ball. People read, do yoga or tai chi, walk their dogs, have picnics - and enjoy pizza!  
Wooster Square is truly a living park.

Life in New Haven’s Little Italy

This video, envisioned and directed by Wooster Square resident Steve Hamm and edited by Scott Amoretells the story of our Wooster Square neighborhood, for many years a tight-knit Italian-American enclave. It has had multiple, packed showings in New Haven and beyond.

A very informative book, The Q Bridge Program, was  just released. It is packed with photos and images and tells a  great story we all can relate to.  Click here for details and purchasing information.
