Located adjacent to the Town of Stratford just east of the East Side, the East End neighborhood borders the Long Island Sound and is bisected by I-95 and the Amtrak/Metro-North rail line. Johnson’s Creek is a prominent surface water feature in the southeast portion of the neighborhood, and the port is a major industrial use within the community.
The East End is characterized by a tight weave of industry and housing typical of pre-World War I industrial areas designed as walk-to-work neighborhoods. In 2000, the largest employment sector in the East End was the manufacturing sector, which accounts for over 40 percent of jobs in the neighborhood.
Housing in the East End is characterized by 2-4 family flats and is mostly renter-occupied. Twelve percent of its housing stock is vacant.
The area has three historic districts: Deacon’s Point Historic District, Gateway Village Historic District and Wilmot Apartments Historic District.
