Morris Cove, New Haven’s easternmost area, hugs the shoreline of New Haven Harbor and Long Island Sound. Morris Cove includes East Shore Park, Fort Nathan Hale, and Lighthouse Point Park, public spaces which provide access to the shoreline for swimming, fishing, hiking and recreation. Admission and parking for the popular summertime attractions of Lighthouse Point Park, with its sandy beaches, picnic areas, historic carousel, and playgrounds, are free to all residents of the City of New Haven.
Morris Cove is primarily residential featuring single family homes and some modern condo developments. The architecture is predominantly Pre-war Tudor revival and also features colonial and ranch styles. Waterfront homes and local marinas for power and sail boating are available here as well.
Morris Cove is across the New Haven Harbor from Yale, a short drive over the Quinnipiac River Bridge.
Area is served by CT Transit buses.
