Hey, i have talked to some people recently that are far out of state, and lets just say that they think that ct is all out rich. well im trying to prove that (for the most part) south east and eastern ct is housing most of the rich and that we do have some places that compare to crime filled areas such as newhallvile,new haven and some others. Have you guys had simalar expieriences, any other bad nieghborhoods?

Southwest CT near NYC: affluent.
Southeast CT near Groton/New London: working class.

There are bad neighborhoods in just about every city in the United States. Connecticut is no exception.

And I think you have your east/west mixed up.

The overall crime rate in CT is higher than comparable income areas in NJ. Probably because of the mandatory low income housing areas in every town.

Eh, there are stereotypes about every state. Ask poor West Virginia or New Jersey what the rest of the country thinks of when it comes to their respective states. I suppose Connecticut's stereotype could be worse than "You are all rich."

There is no "mandate" contained within our statutes, nor is there a low income housing area in every town. I think you're a little confused as to how the 10% affordable statute works.

The fact is the crime rate for comparable income or COL towns, is higher in CT across the board than NJ.
