I live in Arkansas now but in the early 60s I was a student at the Culinary Institute of America when it was on Prospect Street. Many weekend trips were made to Jimmy's for hotdogs, fries, clam rolls and onion rings. Just one of many fond memories of bouncing around the world for years.

Yes. When I was young... my cousin mentioned it. But this was before Orlando decision. Walt Disney ultimately decided on Orlando.

I think weather and actual available land were the killers for choice. Walt Disney World would have never fit in Savin Rock. And who would want to go to Disney in freezing weather!

I moved to West Haven in 1989 and have found it to be a disgusting place to live. The taxes are ridiculous, crime is high and the "Rock" is just a rock. I have heard such wonderful things about Waste Haven but in 25 years I've seen nothing nice about it. If I had the money, I would have moved the day after I moved here but it looks like I'm stuck here.
I would like to see people ban together and come up with funds to level this town and start anew.
West Haven is (now) a sad place to live.
