New Haven is easily reached from New York City via I-95, but this road carries heavy truck and commuter traffic.
A more pleasant alternative from New York is to take the Hutchinson River Parkway to the Merritt Parkway and the Wilbur Cross Parkway (both toll roads).
From Hartford, take I-91 south to Meriden, then the Wilbur Cross Parkway. From the east, I-95 is the only fast road.
