The 5th state in the nation. Connecticut is a diverse state, to the extreme. A extremely strange mixture of extremely rich to wanna-be gangsters, to gangsters, to middle class blue collar, to strait rednecks. Cities like New Haven, Hartford, and Bridgeport, where shootings, drug dealing, and prostitution is common, also contain normal people in the mix. There are also places like Greenwich, which contain the gated, extremely wealthy residents. There are also places where you will find plenty of rednecks. These people will spend there days working, fishing, off-road driving, and drinking by bonfires, lol. Connecticut is overall an average middle class hard working state, with a mixture of both extremes, from rich to dirt poor, from successful business men and women, to welfare relying bums and everything in between.
Connecticut is bordered by MA to the north, RI to the east, LI NY to the south, and NY to the west.
