Part of New Haven's History

The historic Emerson building next to Trinity was New Haven's very first apartment building. Built c1875, it was called the "Kensington Flat", and appeared decades before apartments became popular in New Haven, Connecticut (in the 1920's, after World War I)*. It was eventually purchased by Trinity Lutheran Church and now houses 5 floors of stylish apartments.

The exterior mirrors the design of the church, with a stone and brick front. Architectural details such as the iron dragons and carved stone above the entry door make this a truly unique and interesting fixture of New Haven.

The apartments themselves are classic and spacious, with beautiful hardwood floors, cavernous 12 foot high ceilings, and wood trim that accents the walls. Other features include an elevator, laundry facilities, and handicap access ramp.

Enjoying the same location as the church, the Emerson building is a few blocks from Yale and the beautiful downtown green. All of downtown is within walking disance and the Emerson building is also on the route of the free downtown trolley.

Demand is high among Yale students and locals for the Emerson apartments, but please feel free to contact us to see if there is an opening:
