When one looks fondly- or even more likely, not-so-fondly- back on the time they spent in Berlin, CT, it can quickly become clear whether they are from the town itself, or have simply visited.
Those visiting are most likely more poor than %90 of the residents of Berlin and do not understand the odd things the town likes to do, including decorating the whole town for any holiday that rolls around (scarecrows everywhere on Halloween) and decorating their fire engines to parade round the streets 24/7.
It is easy to pick a Berlinite out- they are white, with girls in northface jackets and uggs, holding a coach purse and juggling between swim team and sex and boys in skinny jeans and swim team t shirts, riding their bikes through the drive thru at Dairy Queen and either unintentionally acting gay, or trying to hide the fact that they are gay from their parents.
Although the neighboring town of New Britain is much more obvious about its drug use, Berlinites are no strangers to weed, mostly because they're rich and have nothing better to do.
It should be noted that it can be counted on one hand how many non-white people live in the town. Berlin may possibly be the most racist town in CT, second only perhaps to West Hartford.

Berlinite 2: Sure, I guess... Here, hold my joint while I get my uggs on.
