Downtown New London Development
The city of New London comprises approximately 5.74 square miles of land and has a population of about 28,540. But, in New London's case — size does not matter! New London is an energetic, dynamic little city that has dedicated downtown business owners, residents and volunteers who work through local groups to enhance their city center. Downtown New London is an example of a thriving business district where constant improvements go hand-in-hand with historic preservation and economic development. Although sometimes a challenge of coordination, New London's different groups come together to create some spectacular events such as the sailfest in July, Books Brushes Jazz & Blues in September and the Celebration of Lights & Song by the Sea in December.
These groups listed below possess differing, yet complimentary goals. All work to make New London a safe, attractive, busy city filled with great little shops, over 30 restaurants, cafes and bars, several antique stores and an eclectic artists community with over a half dozen galleries exhibiting new works on a regular basis. It's a downtown rich in history with several historic sites within it's boundaries. All in all, New London is a wonderful city to walk around in and shop, enjoy a great lunch or dinner, or a stroll along the Waterfront Park. Take a seat and watch the ferries, people fishing off the piers, sailing vessels and merchant ships as they head up and down the Thames and, if you time it just right, you might get to see the beautiful Eagle - the Coast Guard's tall ship as she sails the river.
