  • New London is a seaport city and a port of entry on the northeast coast of the United States. It is located at the mouth of the Thames River in New London County, southeastern Connecticut. New London is located about 107 miles from Boston, Massachusetts, 56 miles from Providence, Rhode Island, 85 miles from New Bedford, Massachusetts, and about 128 miles from New York City. For several decades beginning in the early 19th century, New London was the world's third busiest whaling port after New Bedford, Massachusetts, and Nantucket. The wealth that whaling brought into the city furnished the capital to fund much of the city's present architecture. New London subsequently became home to other shipping and manufacturing industries, but has gradually lost its commercial and industrial heart. The city is home to Connecticut College, Mitchell College, the United States Coast Guard Academy, and The Williams School. New London Harbor is home port to the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Chinook and the Coast Guard's tall ship Eagle. New London had a population of 27,620 at the 2010 census. The Norwich-New London metropolitan area includes twenty-one towns and 274,055 people. [undefined]
