Overview of New London

According to U.S. Census data, New London, Conn., had a population just under 27,600 in July 2011. This architecturally interesting and historically rich city boasts a charming quality and a great value, though it is relatively secluded: It is located about 100 miles southwest of Boston and about 130 miles northeast of New York City.

Those searching for New London apartments for rent will delight in the city's history and current revitalization.

During the 19th century, New London had strong roots in the whaling business, and nicknamed itself "The Whaling City." The city's maritime base contributed to its growth and created strong bonds to the regional economy. New London's whaling ships patrolled the area for 80 years, putting the city in third place on the list of the strongest U.S. whaling markets.

In modern times, the city's downtown district strives to recapture the nostalgia of New London's days in the sun. The city's Waterfront District offers a number of dining, shopping and cultural activities.
