Groton Long Point (GLP) is located within the town of Groton, on Fishers Island Sound, in New London County, Connecticut, United States. The year-round population was 667 at the 2000 census.

The area is administered by the Groton Long Point Association (GLPA), a private association that was established by Special Act of the Connecticut Legislature in 1921. The act is the charter of the GLPA and enables the Association to tax and issue bonds to provide services independent of the town of Groton; typically, such municipal corporations provided services that the larger township could not or would not provide.[1] Pursuant to the act, the GLPA has the same governmental powers as a borough.[1] Today, such a special taxing district can be formed by Connecticut residents on their own without special acts of the Legislature. [1] The area is treated by the U.S. Census Bureau as a borough, although it is not formally incorporated as such.
