New Canaan

Small Town Cosmopolitan

With its thriving main street, convenient location and pedigree of noteworthy residents, New Canaan living is cultured with a genuine community feel.


The Commute

Express trains from Metro North’s New Canaan station, served by its own dedicated railroad branch, reach Manhattan in just under one hour. Downtown Stamford is a short drive (or shuttle train ride) away.



250-acre Waveny Park includes athletic fields, 3.5 miles of trails, swimming facilities and platform tennis—six additional parks are elsewhere in town.


The Legacy

New Canaan became an epicenter of contemporary architecture as home to the “Harvard Five,” a group of five legendary modernists composed of Philip Johnson, Marcel Breuer, Landis Gores, Eliot Noyes and John M. Johansen.


The Landscape

In-town neighborhoods with sidewalk streets and larger estates along gently rolling ridgelines.
