Hello friends and neighbors.

Welcome to NEW HAVEN and autumn!

We are so proud to be able to bring you the people and the great stories of New Haven and the greater New Haven area that is such a special place to live and work. Here is a little about background about NEW HAVEN….

NEW HAVEN is from the Seasons Media, LLC and is locally owned and operated right here in Connecticut.

Seasons Media was started almost 12 years ago with magazines called Seasons. Some of you may be familiar with our magazines Seasons of the Farmington Valley, West Hartford, Glastonbury, Northwest Hills and the Shoreline. We have some of the most talented award winning writers, photographers, illustrators, cartoonists, creative and production
people. And yes again they are all in Connecticut.

We have a deep belief and commitment to local. Always have and always will. We think once you read through NEW HAVEN you will agree.

NEW HAVEN is different from a number of magazines. How? First NEW HAVEN, like all the Seasons Magazines, is delivered free of charge to almost 12,000 households in the Greater New Haven area.

Our commitment to journalism excellence is second to none. But it all starts with a very simple focus: tell the readers a story. When you read through NEW HAVEN, some story subject matter you may know of but hopefully we will present something you may not know and find interesting. Our articles cover a broad range of topics and promise to be
informative, topical and humorous. Some topics may be completely new to our readership. We like to say there is something for everyone in NEW HAVEN.

We want you to interact with NEW HAVEN so we offer a number of ways to do so. Besides the magazines, please visit us on our social media platforms including Facebook and Instagram, our website with special content only found
on NEWHAVENmag.com and please download our free app Seasons CT where you can read the articles, share all the information via multiple social media and even watch specially found and originally produced videos.

Of course, you can also find direct links to our advertisers as well.

NEW HAVEN also offers a unique text messaging service with details in the magazine that will allow our readers special deals that they are only privileged to participate.

More information about all these platforms is in the magazine.
Please let us know your thoughts, ideas and feedback. You can reach us via our contact page!

We welcome your
comments and will always respond.

Wall Street 30th Anniversary
In Select Movie Theatres Nationwide
September 24 & 27
Tickets on sale now!

Oliver Stone’s Oscar-winning film Wall Street, which defined an era of excess and predicted an ongoing obsession with wealth and power, will return to movie theaters for a special 30th anniversary event on September 24 and 27 only. The exclusive two-day event will also feature a new retrospective titled, “Greed is Good,” about the making and continued influence of Wall Street.

Michael Douglas won the Oscar for Best Actor for his portrayal of Gordon Gekko. Gekko’s infamous pronouncement that “Greed, for lack of a better term, is good” became one of the most quoted moments in movie history and turned Gekko into a fascinating and unique movie character – both villain and hero.

The 13 million objects in the Peabody’s collections–in 10 curatorial divisions from Anthropology to Zoology–represent a world-class record of the history of Earth and its cultures. A mere fraction are on display in the public galleries! In continuing celebration of our 150th anniversary, we’re offering free behind-the-scenes tours through fall of 2017. This is your chance to see specimens and artifacts rarely seen by the public and the state-of-the art facilities in which they’re stored and organized.

Tours leave the Museum lobby promptly at 4pm and last one hour. Led by Yale students, each tour takes in two collections areas and is limited to 12 people. Please limit the number in your party to four and sign up for only one tour date to allow space for others to attend. Because many of the collections rooms are active labs or work spaces, tours are not open to children under 12. Advance registration is required at peabody.yale.edu/events/behind-scenes-collections-tours.

If the Tour Attendees slots are full, please do sign up for the wait list and we will contact you if space becomes available.
