Well I was born in New London, live there for some time. I am sad to here that it has gone downhill. From all the reviews, it look like heroin, drugs and violence have grip on the young adults. I now live in the Bay Area in California and I tell people with much pride that I am from this quaint town but it seems as if I should not be as proud? It was such a beautiful small town, especially in the winter...as well as the summer. This makes me very sad

Sadly I was born and raised in New London. My experience here has been terrible. The residents here are very rude and hateful, especially the older residents. New London there's barely anything productive for young teens to do to stay out of trouble. This leads to young teen going into gangs, doing drugs, or going to prison. We need something positive in our community to show us that there´s more to life than being on the wrong side of the law.
New London is a quaint town positioned well between a cute waterfront downtown, connections to other northeastern states, and two of the best casinos in the country. It is a college town, home to the United States Coast Guard Academy and UCONN, with many other prestigious schools within a few hours' drive. There is a train station in town that connects to busier cities, but New London itself is generally quiet and a great resting place away from the buzz of urban areas.
