The Glass House would like to provide you with some idea of the impact reduced Metro-North service to New Canaan would have on our operation, and also on other businesses in town. Our visitor survey reveals the following data:
25 percent of our visitors arrive by Metro North
50 percent of our visitors eat at restaurants in downtown New Canaan
25 percent of our visitors also shopped at New Canaan stores
10 percent of our visitors attended other in-town attractions such as Grace Farms, Waveny Park, Carriage Barn Arts Center, Gores Pavilion, and more. Our Annual Visitation ranges between 12,000 to 13,000 visitors per season (seasons run May 1 through Nov. 30 each year). Substantially all of our visitors travel to visit the Glass House during “off-peak” hours.
