New Canaan, which is not on Long Island Sound, looks more like an old New England town than does much of the rest of Fairfield County. Much of it is bucolic and it has drawn many writers and artists to live there. It also has had the reputation of being a hard-drinking town, for youths and adults and, unfair or not, a reputation for having a surplus of spoiled rich kids.
