Franco’s “little place in New Haven”: where will it be? [POLL]

In a recent USA Today article, soon-to-be Yalien James Franco is quoted as saying “”I will have a little place in New Haven, but I’ll keep my place (in New York)”.  I’m not sure if Jimmy knows this yet, but finding a fancy place to live in New Haven is harder than one would think.

1. THE ELI

Why? It’s obvs the nicest residential building in New Haven.  Its description includes the word “luxury” twice, “terrazzo” once, and the phrase”elegantly appointed bathrooms.”  It’s also fairly un-populated by Yalies (undergrads especially), so he’ll have plenty of peace and quiet.

2.  THE TAFT

Why? Its reputation for being where wealthy undergrads live (at least as discussed by Rory Gilmore in Gilmore Girls…celebrities tend to follow celebrities.) Plus it is in very close proximity to the Owl Shop, arguably the only bar luxe enough for such a celeb, and the Anchor, which Franco can pretend to be a regular.

3. TEMPLE SQUARE APARTMENTS

Why?  The fourth floor penthouses. It’s also very close to the Criterion, so James can pop over to watch himself on the silver screen whenever he wants!

4.  A FELLOW’S SUITE IN ONE OF THE RESIDENTIAL COLLEGES

Why?  He can feel like a real college student! (JK WHO ARE WE KIDDING?)

5.  A HOUSE ON ST. RONAN

Why?  It’s far from the undergrads (except those who travel up Science Hill, and they’re probably too busy in the lab or whatever). The houses are all pretty old and nice, so James can feel all homemaker-y.

6. SCROLL AND KEY

Why? It’s the nicest building in all of New Haven. [ed: and he'd get to hang out all the time with Elisa Gonzalez! Swoon!]

7.  NEW YORK

Why?  It’s New York. It’s only an hour-and-a-half train ride away, and a lot of grad students do it anyway, especially those of the artsier mindset.

I’m hedging my bets on New York or the Eli.  What do y’all think?

Where should James Franco live?

    Andy-

    Good point! Can’t believe I forgot to include that. I’ve heard the rooms are pretty nice but occasionally have bugs.

  • Yalie

    I wonder if he will become a common sight on campus?

    I live in New Haven, actually East Haven, but I am about 15 minutes from Yale, and I don’t think he should live in New Haven unless he wants to get robbed. I think he should rent a house in Morris Cove which is the ONLY nice place in New Haven. There are all very beautiful houses on Townsend Avenue, and the surrounding areas, and its also very quiet. I don’t think he will be disturbed there. Also its about 15 minutes away from Yale. But I am sure he will be living somewhere very close to Yale. Totally hope I see him around..
