Connecticut is that beautiful, affluent state wedged between MA and NY, that everyone views as pompous and snobby. Of course there are many wealthy areas associated with New York in the So. Half of the state (e.g. GW, Darien, New Caanan, Wilton, W & S Ports,Madison, and Old Lyme farther east. But, CT has its fair share of undesirable places including Waterbury and its disgusting blue collar suburbs, and Inner City Hartford, New Haven, and B-port. Southern CT is not the only rich enclave in the state, the Farmington Valley is a part of the Hartford Metro Area and has three very wealthy towns; Avon, Farmington, and Simsbury(My Hometown). And yes, even up here in S-bury, everyone wears Abercrombie and most still like the good ole Yankees(My Choice) as opposed to the Massholes' favorite, the blow sox. To sum it up, Connecticut IS a great state, better than New Jersey(Mainly b/c it doesn't have the STENCH). And no we are not gay, don't live near farms, and all the houses arent over 1,000,000, mine in fact is only worth $800,000 translated to about $2,787,000 if it were in Greenwich.
Most of Connecticut isn't as rich as you all think, for instance if you live in West Hartford, CT(Nice Town) and your house is worth $100,000 (unrealisticlly cheap), the cost inflation of being near NYC and everone wanting to live there would cause the house to be worth $348,000 in Waspy Greenwich.
