This website to ‘all things’ New Britain is designed to provide you with the full experience of our wonderful city and everything it has to offer! We have added even more places to explore, eat, and shop as we continuously grow our local business economy and community. One thing will become unmistakably clear as you scroll through the following pages: New Britain is a unique community, full of diverse and deeply-rooted cultures as well as, of course, wonderful people. Our economy, arts, food, and civic life all reflect our breadth of shared experiences and ethnicities that have made us a stronger and more vibrant community.

New Britain has long been known as “The Hardware City.” Throughout the 20th Century, our economy was anchored by large-scale manufacturing. Companies like The Stanley Works, American Hardware, Fafnir Bearing and Corbin-Russwin all called New Britain home. However, as times & technology changed, manufacturing began leaving the northeast. We are proud to retain a core aerospace and medical manufacturing base that keeps the industry buzzing here in New Britain.

Today, New Britain is a City in the midst of a metamorphosis with the multitude of innovative development projects in and around Downtown, with even more in the queue. The addition of infrastructure projects like the updated Plan of Conservation & Development as well as our award-winning Complete Streets Masterplan 2.0 has added elevated sustainability, livability and walkable elements that significantly improve quality of life for residents, visitors, and businesses. As you travel around the City, you will see the world-renowned New Britain Museum of American Art, a system of world class parks, exciting baseball at New Britain Stadium—home to the New Britain Bees. I encourage you to visit our culturally unique neighborhoods such as Little Poland—one of the nation’s most popular and thriving Polish communities.
