Noank is located as a subdivision of Groton along the west side of the Mystic River, north of Long Island Sound. It is divided into two general areas known as Noank and Noank Village. The Village is a historic area with narrow homes, shipyards, waterfront properties and water views of Long Island and Fishers Island.
