About the Town of Darien

Darien is a suburb of New York City with a population of 21,742. Darien is in Fairfield County and is one of the best places to live in Connecticut. Darien is a coastal town in Fairfield County, Connecticut, United States 37 miles northeast of New York City. It is the smallest town on Connecticut’s “Gold Coast”. Darien is also one of the wealthiest communities in the U.S.

Situated on Long Island Sound between the cities of Stamford and Norwalk, the town has relatively few office buildings. Many residents commute to Manhattan with two Metro-North railroad stations–Noroton Heights and Darien–linking the town to Grand Central Terminal.

As of the census of 2000, there were 19,607 people, 6,592 households, and 5,385 families residing in the town. The makeup of the town was 95.97% White, 0.45% African American, 0.04% Native American, 2.42% Asian, 0.03% Pacific Islander, and 0.30% from other races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 2.19% of the population.

Originally part of Stamford, the area we know as Darien became Middlesex Parish in 1737.  It was incorporated as the Town of Darien in 1820.  The first settlers took title to the land in 1640, when the New Haven Colony bought from the Indians a tract of wilderness where the Rippowam River met the waters of Long Island Sound. 

Darien has the lowest property taxes of the Fairfield County suburbs of its size, with a mill rate of 15.35 being consistently lower than New Canaan at 15.985 and Westport at 18.09.
