Covering 44 square miles in southwestern Connecticut, Danbury is situated along the New York border. Although the thriving city has served as a commercial and industrial hub for the surrounding communities for many decades, the economy base continues to grow and diversify. Union Carbide, Pitney Bowes, GE Capital, and Grolier all call Danbury home. The Danbury Fair Mall, the largest in New England, crowns the retail scene. Western Connecticut State University enriches the region with cultural events, while Kenosha and Candlewood lakes offer outstanding recreational opportunities.
