Noroton Neck is a peninsula and residential neighborhood located between Long Neck Point and Noroton Bay. Nearwater Lane is the sole municipal road that connects the neighborhood to the rest of Darien, while all of the other roads on the peninsula are private. The area is home to Weed Beach, Noroton Yacht Club, the Darien Junior Sailing Team (DJST) and is served by Hindley Elementary School. The neighborhood south of Weed Beach is low-lying, which makes it especially prone to coastal flooding during nor'easters and tropical storms
