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.
Masshole: 'Where ah you from?'
Connecticutian: 'Connecticut.'
Masshole: 'Really? I've never been to that paht of New York."
Connecticutian: 'It's not part of New York!'
Rhode Islander, New Hampshirite, Vermonter, and Mainiac: 'Sure it is.'
Connecticutian: -_-*

Connecticut is not all rich. Beside Fairfield County, it is really pretty normal. I live in New Haven, and honestly I do not feel CT deserves to have the "Rich State" title. It just isn't accurate. There are many "Ghetto" neighborhoods and high crime areas all around, people outside of Connecticut just don't take the time realize. We're not all rich, yes we make more on average per household, but its not all like that. If people took the time to realize CT isn't just of the home of Prep School snobs and Yale, then maybe they'll understand what we're all about.
Are you from Connecticut?

Yes.

So, you're rich and live in a colonial house?

Far from it, we're not all like that.

Sure you aren't.

My home state in which I have spent half my life so far. Get this through your thick heads america, WE ARE ALL NOT RICH! I lived in Waterbury which is really ghetto and filled with blacks and hispanics.

The Connecticut that I know is far different from what comes to mind for everyone else. The Connecticut that I know is a rough and tumble place full of alcoholics and people recently laid off from their $75k+ factory jobs. It's a small place where people think small and use small words. (Forgive me Peter Gabriel) Contrary to CT having a high IQ, most nutmeggers I knew were just a notch above retarded.

Which is why I moved to Orlando, Florida where I increased my standard of living for much less money
Man: I need to get out of Connecticut
Friend : Anywhere is better then Connecticut

Where New Yorkers come and live for the summer and or in retirement. The state that is in fact, the wealthiest state, but the old retired people refuse to put money into good causes. Where New Yorkers tend to not obey many of Connecticut's traffic laws, have no problem cutting you off, and still talk on thier cell phones while in the car. The area where "Raggies" are most prevalent in lower class towns.
My neighbors are from NewYork... They ask me not to plow thier snow because they like the "pristine" look. Until the Snowplow comes by later and totally ruins it for them.

My old school still looks like a war zone. Due to the old people voting "No" many times consecutively to raise funding for repairs

My towns firehouse loses funding because the old people deny funding.

These old people from connecticut are definately rich, and about to die soon, but they white-knuckle thier money

Richest state in the nation, but also one where most of the wealth is concentrated. Connecticut is known to most as simply a few wealthy towns in Fairfield County. Most of the state is less rich and unknown to the rest of the U.S, but the people in Fairfield County are so rich that the statistics are skewed. CT's cities are among the poorest in the country. The Capital, Hartford, is the 2nd poorest city with a population over 100,000 in the country and has been on the nation's 25 most dangerous cities list for a decade. New Haven and Bridgeport have also had historically rampant crime, and New Haven was the crack capital of the country in the early 1990s. Poverty and crime are primarily concentrated in these cities and some of their inner ring suburbs (e.g. West Haven; East Hartford; New Britain), but their overall metropolitan areas are among the richest in the nation. Connecticut actually has very little rural land, as the 4th most densely populated state in the U.S., but is rather, undergoing intensive urban sprawl in all its metropolitan areas, especially the Stamford area, where New York City residents are moving.
Much like the United States in general, most of Connecticut's money is found in only a few towns.

A state that helps connect Boston to New York City.

Be prepared to endure long roads filled with 16 wheelers and people other than connecticut residents. People tend to ask themselves when they left the highway, and somehow ended up on someone's private road with nice cut grass and spacious trees. Don't fret... It's just the Merritt Parkway.

My native state, Connecticut. If you can spell it you must be from there. But where? Certainty not Fairfield County, that appendage of New York. We hear tell it was seized in colonial times because New York wanted Long Island. No, that is in NO WAY The Nutmeg State. And hey, we ARE the Nutmeg State, not some hoypaloy Constitution State, let’s be real. Yes, I am from Connecticut, New London County to be exact. We sometimes think we are the forgotten part. The Merritt Parkway and Berlin Turnpike don’t run through our part of the state. Hartford keeps neglecting to fund Route 11.

We are the quiet seafaring part of the state. Picturesque harbors, quaint small towns and a deep Swamp Yankee heritage. Corn fields growing in the summer sun and ton of apples and apple cider in the fall from our numerous farms. Yup, we still have them. We also have those New England accents, us and Windham County to the north. We are diehard BoSox fans, Celtics, Bruins and Pats, too. We are where Whalers put out in the hunt for whale oil and where the first ship powered by atomic energy set sail as well. Today it rests as a national monument, moored in the Thames River at the main gate of the United States Submarine Base New London in Groton. We also have the most popular attractions in the state, Mystic Marinelife Aquarium and The Mystic Seaport. Oh, and did I mention our Native Americans? Their creative buisness side burst forth and spawned two mega casinos and show places, Mohican Sun and the largest casino in the world, Foxwoods.

Yup, we ARE Connecticut
Swamp Yankee: "Where you from"?
Fairfield Resident: "Connecticut"!
Swamp Yankee: "By golly so am I. What part"?
Fairfield Resident: "Fairfield".
Swamp Yankee, in disgust. "That ain't Connecticut you are an branch of New York City, not fit for human beings to live in"!
