My home!!
-When outsiders think of connecticut, they think $$$.
This is true, but ONLY for Fairfield County. Yes, there are some towns that are exceptions like Ridgefield, but I've never really been anywhere outside the FC. CT is what you think of when you think New England. We are New York, but with lighthouses and sailboats, and no trashy beaches, just ones you walk barefoot through at sundown. We are Mass. without the majorly annoying accents, and the Red Sox obsession(i don't know if other parts of CT like the Red Sox). Houses range from a peice of crap being $500,000+, and a decent/nice house being $1,000,000+ at minimum. The school systems are great, but people go to Prep School anyway. This state is simply amazing.
It is beautiful, the snow lightly dusts all the state, and the fall foliage is to die for. The summers are hot, but not way too hot (thought it gets quite hot). There is no doubt this state is rich like me. The infamous Greenwich, Westport, Weston, Easton,New Caanan, Wilton, Darien. This state rocks my socks. And for that girl who lives in Westport (i live in Weston) New Jersey is a dumphole, trust me (it's not just CT-ers who think this). Flip flops are not worn in the winter though..... Nevertheless we preps just by association. I love this state, but i must leave it cause it's getting on my nerves!it's too perfect!
I love Jewish Connecticut-ites!!
-Boy Meets World- actual episode
Shawn: Wait, are you telling me that you were some rich kid when you were growing up? Did you have a stone wall?!
John: Yeah, I grew up in some rich town called Westport, CT. All I did was hang out with other snobs, but I finally got out of that place.
Shawn: You're from CONNECTICUT?!

The fifth state to join the union of the United States. Considered by many to be one of the six New England states, the other five being Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Maine; considered by New Englanders to be an annex of the state of New York.

While outsiders may think of millionaires when they hear Connecticut (just like people think of Hollywood and Malibu when they hear California), the notion of it being a fabulously wealthy state is true only in a handful of towns in southwestern and central CT. While it is the richest state in the US, it also has two of the poorest cities in America--Hartford and Bridgeport. The few very wealthy people in CT are so incredibly rich that they skew the data, making the people of CT look richer than they really are. Go for a drive in Hartford, Bridgeport, Waterbury, New Haven, New Britain, or Willimantic as well as the rich places near NYC to get an accurate picture of the state. Connecticut people who live outside Fairfield County hardly even consider it to really be a part of the state--all they have in common with the rest of us is the design of their license plates.
Westport girl: I'm going shopping in The City this weekend.

Bristol guy: What "city"?

Westport girl: Why, New York! What other city would it be?

Bristol guy: Uhh, I have no reason to go to New York, so I rarely do. "The City" is pretty vague to people who are really from Connecticut and not just suburban New Yorkers.

The O.C. of the East Coast - though more liberal and historic. Connecticut is home to Paul Newman and Martha Stewart and birthplace of the late Hope Lange. In the 1970s, a time of major demographic change, its governors included the abortion-obsessed Thomas Meskill and the late Ella Grasso.

Connecticut television is dominated by Hartford's WFSB, Channel 3, formerly home to Oprah's pal Gayle King. No other station in America is so obsessed with its frequency number. All the station's personalities wear giant silver 3s on their lapels, and mindlessly chant "three" at every available opportunity. Hartford itself is located halfway between Boston and NYC, and has a marked inferiority complex to both of America's two oldest major cities. The state capitol building, though, is a glorious marvel of Gothic Revival, and well worth a visit.
"Connecticut is critical to Gerald Ford's chances in 1976" - some faceless bicentennial-era broadcaster.
