New Haven coliseum site needs a neighborhood

Strategically, the Coliseum site in New Haven may be the most important land in the city. With concurrent efforts to erase the gash of Route 34, cutting the city in half, the Coliseum site carries the potential to ignite whole new neighborhoods infilling to downtown, to the train station, to the Hill and hospital/research campus, and to Wooster Square. It’s the hub of a potentially dynamic wheel. The future core of a new New Haven, coincidentally in the same location as the original core.
