Hugging the jetties, points, and coves along the Long Island Sound coast, Woodmont
offers newcomers a folksy charm gleaned from its history as a once-coveted summer home colony for the wealthiest in New Haven society. Condo
rentals are hugely popular. The neighborhood's landscape reflects the gardening talents of locals with their beautifully-cultivated flowerbeds and charming ornamental animals along the tree-lined streets.
Woodmont displays a great deal of civic pride, and the annual Woodmont Day celebration draws residents to view the parade, dance to live music, and indulge in a pie-eating contest. Woodmont is located just 11 miles southwest of New Haven via I-95 and 70 miles from Midtown Manhattan, and the train station lies 10 minutes from the Metro-North transit station in Milford.
