You are in New York so I am going to say no, not many, although New Canaan is getting more diverse every year. There has been a dramatic change since the Preppy Handbook cited us in the 1980's. According to City-Data.com we got about 2% more diverse between the 2000 census and 2009 but we have a ways to go:

New Canaan races chart
White alone - 18,220 (93.9%)
Asian alone - 443 (2.3%)
Hispanic - 338 (1.7%)
Black alone - 196 (1.0%)
Two or more races - 172 (0.9%)
Other race alone - 21 (0.1%)
American Indian alone - 4 (0.02%)
Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander alone - 1 (0.01%)

Hope this helps.
