New London Alliance
a Neighborhood Preservation Program Community Group
Who We Are
The New London Alliance (NLA) was formed to provide valuable feedback and input to the City of Burlington. NLA also serves as the group that will plan future events and happenings within New London in order to promote the neighborhood as a great place to buy or rent a home and raise a family. Volunteers in the group serve as steering team members and focus group participants to further the success of Burlington's Neighborhood Preservation Program (NPP) grant initiatives in the community.
The Neighborhood Preservation Program (NPP) is a 5-year grant offered by the NJ Department of Community Affairs in order to invest in communities within a town or city. In 2020, the City of Burlington was awarded this grant for the New London district. These funds will be used to support improvements in the neighborhood for residents, property owners, and businesses within the district.
The New London NPP District is bordered by:
Washington Ave to the west (both sides of the street)
Broad Street (south side of the street, from Washington to Lawrence St.; north side from Wood St to Stacy St.)
High Street (both sides of High St. from Pearl St. to Federal St., then west side to Wilber Watts School border)
Kennedy Park to the south (the park is within the district)
NLA meets once per month at varied locations. To find out how to attend meetings,

The headquarters for all recreational activities sponsored by the town, The Keegan Center is the heart of the community. The Center is a gathering place for group meetings and celebrations and hosts a community food bank every other Saturday. Located on Wood Street, it sits on the edge of beautiful Kennedy Park.
Center for the Arts
432 High St.
The Lyceum Hall Center for the Arts presents concerts, art exhibits, plays, classes, and special events to enrich and educate the community through engaging creative arts programming for all ages. Local artists regularly display their work throughout the year in the Gallery, while musicians, actors, and artists present live concerts and theatrical performances in the theatre. Children in the community participate in fun and innovative performing arts programs.
The Lyceum is also home to the Linda L. Colaguori Library of the Arts. Its collection of books for children and adults includes theatre, music, dance, visual art and artists, architecture, and more. Visitors may read for pleasure, research art-related projects, story hours, discussions, and meetings.
The New London neighborhood was established by city planners in 1696. Over the years many beautiful homes have been erected here, from quaint row houses to large spacious homes. New London has always been, and continues to be, that nice residential neighborhood within walking distance of our downtown shops and restaurants.
High & Broad Streets
Burlington's beautiful and historic downtown is part of the New London District. As such, it offers grant opportunities and support to both business and commercial property owners as part of the NPP grant program.
Currently, a stroll through the area will take you by several antique shops, varied restaurants and event locations, an art gallery/maker's space, our local brewery, a charming old Inn, and an assortment of specialty shops and services run by small business entrepreneurs.
