This Article attempts to present a more comprehensive and detailed examination of the place of apartments—before, during, and after the enactment of zoning—than has been presented in the literature to date through an examination of the impact of apartment houses on both pre-zoning land use patterns and the zoning process in New Haven. This Study examines the period between 1912 and 1932, with a particular emphasis on the period between 1922 and 1926. The latter period begins with the selection of New Haven’s first Zoning Commission in 1922 and concludes with the passage of New Haven’s first zoning ordinance in 1926. This Article’s subject is an eighteen-block area at the heart of which lies Whitney Avenue.
