A town in Connecticut. Darien is steriotyped to be a filthy rich prep town, but not all of it is. That reputation belongs to Potomac, Maryland thank you very much.
girl from Darien: Hi! I play lacrosse and I'm a rich prep.
girl from Potomac: Psh- yeah right. You don't have a ribbon in your hair and your family only owns two cars. Try again, and next time wear some Juicy.
hi, i currently live in darien, and just thought i'd give my two cents to the world at large, so far, the closest definition i've read is number 7. yes, there are those in darien who are rich, and then there are those who live in government substidized housing, aka allen o'neil area... yes, we also have the preppies, which are in reality the greater 75% of the kids who attend our public schools. These kids do drive their nice ass SUV"s to school, with their popped collars and their blasting crappy rap music (not that rap music sucks, they just have shitty taste). In reference to drugs, the kids in darien simply put get ripped the f*** off. They pay exorburant amounts for drugs that proably aren't what' they're being told they're getting, and sure as hell aren't the weight they're being quoted as given. That being said, darien teens can hold their alchohol, they know how to drink, and they drink alot. I know plenty of kids i go to school with who start off their morning routine with a couple shots of vodka and a swig or two of whiskey, it's sad to be honest, the amount of alchohl that these kids drink. To finish off my tweaking rant about this crappy town, all i can say is that NO it is not a good place to raise your kids. We do have good education, but if you ever want your kid to be happy or fulfilled with his or her life, do not, i repeat, do not settle down here. you will regret it when your kid goes to brown on a lacrosse scholarship only to get kicked out for...more...
Darien is a small town that has a populatio of nice and preppy people. I should know because my friends and I are one of those nice people. Not all people in Darien are rich and drink alcohol. The only reason we wear brands such as polo, juicy,vinyard vines,ect. is becuase we care about how we come across to other people. It's called pride. Most of us have extremly good grades and don't go to collage on just sports scholarships becasue we actually work for the grades and many peoples goals are to get into collages like princton, harvard, and other good collages. It has nothing to do with donating money. And not ALL of our houses are on the water. And we dont all have over sized SUVS, ever heard pollution? I've seen plenty of other cars, such as mercedes, Jeeps, mini coopers, and even a few not so nice cars.And their not all blue either, for example mine is silver, and I've seen a lot red and yellow and green cars too. And maybe some of the houses are close together but thats only because we have to make room for all the people to live here because so many people want live in such a friendly town. We shop at the Darien Sport shop only because they have the best clothes and those clothes are the latest style. Nobody wants to be left out!!! And noone shops at target, come on! And the Stepford Wives was filmed here I know the house it was filmed in and i know some of the extras in the movie, they wanted real darieners. Also a soon to be movie is comming out that ws filmed here...more...
A town located in Southern Connecticut, bordered between Stamford & Norwalk. Public school townies try to look like what they believe elite prep school students look like. But instead of classic, conservative and traditional clothing in navy blue, red, etc...., many of Darien's residents wear pink and green thinking this color combination is somehow preppy and not Palm Beach if worn in the Northeast. Most true "preppies" call and consider these wannabe preppy Darien residents "townies" and make fun of them for trying to pretend to be from old families or from any sort of prepatory related culture (most residents are second generation Italians and Irish, and not fourth generation WASPs). Darien residents trying to be preppy are much like ghetto head-to-toe Louis Vuitton clad urbanites: too much and trying to hard.
Just as rap stars wear to many designer logos, the residents of Darien wear pink and green in an attempt to be preppy.
Darien is a little town in Fairfield County where everyone looks and acts alike. All the moms drive around in suburbans with those ridiculous Blue Wave stickers that everyone in Stamford and Norwalk laughs at.
Basically, I'd rather live in the middle of Harlem then in Darien where everyone is a exactly alike and can not think for themselves. Everyones to busy worrying about what everyone else has and is doing.
Darien is so fake it makes Pamela Anderson's boobs look real.
Darien, Connecticut is a town that no one (not even its own residents) understand. Other people who have wrote the definition for Darien seem to either say that it is a great rich town where kids have fun (which is true for the rich residents) and others have said that its a good alternative to greenwich or new canaan because of lower-costing homes (which many darien residents dont even know exist; i.e. the Avalon housing). In reality, like any town in suburban America, Darien has a huge range of incomes per households, and the notion that everyone in Darien is rich is just a facade that the town tries to preserve; it sounds much nicer to say your from a rich town that has teenagers that do alot of drugs and drink alot, than saying that there are also real drug addicts, alcoholics. Also, I'd like to mention that these kids dont necessarily all steal the money from their parents to get those "items"; they sell drugs to the rich kids in their own school and make a killing! Norwalk and Stamford are scary to Darieners, but the only reason they should ever have to be afraid of going into those two, financially normal towns/cities, are when they have to go on a beer run or to go get ripped off by a street weed/crack/coke/whatever dealer on the streets in the hot spots of those two towns. If a Dariener were to, for example, have a job in stamford or norwalk, there is just as much a chance of an incident happening as any town that isnt famous for being rich (*cough* darien). ...more...
First of all Darieners do NOT have more money than New Caanan or Greewnwich at all. In fact the houses in Darien have no land , houses in wealthier towns like Wilton or New Caanan houses sell for more(a lot more). So the only good thing about Darien is its lower cost of living compared to other fairfield county towns. And by the way everyone has nice summer homes in Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard, Maine, and the Hamptons around here! It's also wrong to say everyone in Darien is rich. Just look at the houses, they're 10 feet apart. Sure there are some big houses but not quite as many as the wealthier towns like Greenwich, Wilton, and New Caanan. Darien is also not as good at lax as they claim to be. Last year the Wilton girls team beat them in the FCIAC finals! And the blue wave should be prepared to get beat again because there are soo many amazing athletes in the incoming freshmen class. Darien is a poor attempt to copy the lavish lifestyles of towns like Westport, Wlton, and New Caanan. Also The Stepford Wives was filmed in New Caanan and based on New Caanan not Darien. I should know it was filmed in my neighborhood.
The Darieners decided to go on a shopping spree in Wilton and New Caanan, but went home crying because the prices were too high. Later in the day the went to their normal shopping destination; Target.
