Trumbull Town to the north and Fairfield Town to the west together make up the North End neighborhood. Located in the northeast portion of the city near Reservoir/Whiskey Hill on one side and Brooklawn/St. Vincent on the other side.
Mostly residential in nature, it is a neighborhood with some pockets of higher-density development on the west side of the neighborhood as well as a commercial district along Main Street. There is a significant amount of parkland/open space in the vicinity, including three large parks: Veterans Memorial Park, Puglio Park, and Elton Rogers Park. The neighborhood is also home to a large body of water called Lake Forest.
The neighborhood has a higher than average share of owner-occupied homes (69%). The North End had over one-third of its jobs in the education and health services sectors in 2000, which was attributable to its proximity to St. Vincent’s Medical Center.
