Former center manufacturing and current worn-down shell of a town, New Britain has a rich past and mediocre present. Coming from a town infamous for gang wars, teacher-student relationships, and corrupt, perverted superintendents of schools, New Britainites who leave are often asked if they have ever been shot at, much to their chagrin. Home to Capitol Lunch, Central Connecticut State University and the New Britain Rock Cats (and, in the past, the New Britain Red Sox, the farm team for the Boston Red Sox). Residents don't understand why you think they're rich, they don't have an accent, and they call oblong sandwiches grinders, thankyouverymuch.
"Gonna go get some Cappy Dogs before the Rock Cats game. Or something."
