What Bert Has To Say About Norwich-New London Metro Area

New London is located where the broad Thames River empties into the Long Island Sound. Norwich lies about 13 miles upriver. New London has a rich maritime history and is now home to the U.S. Coast Guard Academy. Norwich is an early industrial center, where the first paper and iron nails were made in the mid-1700’s. Both cities remain fairly industrial but have modestly attractive downtown cores with areas of historic buildings. New London is also home to two small colleges.
