THE TOWN

WESTPORT

Westport is a coastal town located approximately 47 miles north of New York City. Originally an artists’ colony, the town has held strong to its cultural roots while expanding into an affluent community that was named #5 in Money Magazine’s 2008 list of the 25 Top-Earning Towns.

With a population of approximately 26,592 people, Westport’s small-town atmosphere provides residents with a quaint haven away from the bustle of larger cities. Of course its proximity to New York City means you’re still only an hour away from enjoying the big-city benefits, too.

The downtown area offers a robust shopping experience with everything from one-of-a-kind boutiques to luxury retail locations. A thriving arts community means you’ll be looking forward to finer art exhibitions around every corner, and outstanding performances at notable venues such as the Westport Country Playhouse and The Levitt Pavilion.

A first-rate public school system along with an outstanding an innovative public library ensures success to top-of-the-line educational resources. And with ventures like the Green Village initiative and its own recycling efforts, Westport is breaking ground in environmental awareness.
