The West End/West Side neighborhood borders the Town of Fairfield and the Black Rock neighborhood. It is bisected by I-95 and upland from Cedar Creek, with views of Seaside Park.
The neighborhood is largely medium-density residential (2-4 family homes), but also contains industrial uses, which are mainly concentrated south of Railroad Avenue in the western portion of the community.
Commercial uses are located along Fairfield Avenue, State Street and Brooklawn Avenue. The neighborhood does not contain many significant parks or open space areas, with the exception of Went Field.
The West End/West Side contains part of the Stratfield Historic District. Three residential areas are on the National Register of Historic Places: Bassickville, Lindencroft Park and Division Street as well as the industrial area along Railroad Avenue.
The neighborhood is predominantly renter-occupied, with renters accounting for 70% of the population.
