I’ve lived here for about 10 years now. Great little town, good amenities. The main public high school leaves a bit to be desired. It wasn’t very good when I attended in 2015, but they have recently been doing a LOT of renovations. All in all, New Haven used to be a really quiet and safe place. Unfortunately, that has started to change in the last few years. Recently, there has been a spike in local crime. Primarily robberies and theft, even some vandalism involving slashed tires in my neighborhood. Someone drugged my mother’s drink at a local bar! (Thankfully, her friend was with her at the time and nothing else happened.) I used to feel completely safe waking around the streets at night, and didn’t normally bother with locking the doors. Now, I’m not so sure...

New Haven is a true family-oriented town. From community events like annual car shows and weekly farmers markets to the miles upon miles of paved trails, this town is a prime area. I feel safe and secure in my neighborhood, and have the opportunity to have city life experiences with Fort Wayne being so close. I love my town, and I am proud to live in it!
Small town pretty safe but the city does a lot of stupid stuff though. At one point the mayor made everyone use his brothers trash company he was running. Scandal. The city tore up main street to replace all the sewage...but left the ground open in the winter causing people to have to have their own main lines replaced at the owners expense...then the first big rain that spring flooded everyones basements. The city promised a meeting and canceled them and the person that was supposed to handle the aftermath suddenly went on a 2 month long vacation. I lost my house because my insurance wouldnt cover it. Im not the only one. Scandal. Other than that the city is nice. If you werent born there people who were treat you like an outsider. Good pools. Nice parks.
