It's not as bad as Hartford or Springfield, but it's still on the ghetto side though. I wouldn't worry much about it, actually. I would compare it with West Springfield.

Unless you're selling bags of drugs, don't worry about anything. You'll be fine. I wouldn't advise packing down here either; if for some reason you get stopped and found to have a gun on you- you'll be screwed.

Oh God no, it's not like that there. Leave the gun home. Just more run down old industrial area with the requisite multi-family houses surrounding it.

Ha. I agree. East Hartford's "bad" parts aren't scary like you'll be shot at or anything, just run down.

Seriously, when I saw the "should I bring a hand gun" thing I was like "Uhhhh...."

It's not like this:




I mean don't get me wrong, I'm all for carrying cause you never know but East Hartford is for the most part harmless.
