Yeah, one of the worst parts about Hamden is Dixwell Ave and being so close to New Haven. Traffic can be bad at times and the spill over of certain New Haven things kinda brings the area down.

I live in Hamden, a few miles away from Dixwell and its not a bad area to live. But I dont like when I have to go into the main road/shopping areas. It could be much worse of course, but could be much better as well. Some of the people and their mannerisms drive me nuts sometimes.

Also Milford has things like the Milford Boat Works Annual Lobster Bake, Milford Oyster Festival, a great St. Patrick's Day Parade, Tree Lighting in Christmas, Irish Festival, Bands at the Fowler Pavilion, Food & Wine tastings on the green, the list goes on.

I'm pretty sure taxes are cheaper in Milford to so your $ will go a lot farther.
Ohhhh wowwww!!!Sounds exactly what I'm looking for. So many things to do, I'm so excited.

I live in Detroit (25 miles away from the downtown area of course), so nothing is more dangerous and scary than this place!!!But Dixwell Avenue, remind me a lot of Detroit, which is something that I don't like. Hamden is nice especially the Spring Glen area, a really like it, but as you already mention, if I have to drive through the "not so good" areas in order to do my shopping is definitely a no for me.

I agree with the others, Milford is the better choice. In addition to more shopping and entertainment options, there are beaches which Hamden does not have. The schools in Milford perform better than Hamden so I would go with Milford. Jay
