Why not Bethany,Woodbridge, and Orange be added on to the best list? They have excellent schools and Orange has lots of shopping/ all towns have rural feel with culture!

Hello, names Chris. I just have a comment to say. Anybody could complain about the bad things in a city/ town, and that's what most people do, complain. The question is, what as a citizen in that city, are we doing to make it better? Do you even vote? We have a voice, go to the Mayor, and ask for change. Don't forget that there's power in numbers. I'm 19, and I live in Waterbury, you know "Dirty Waterz". But I was raised here,after I came from Puerto Rico, and I love it, why?don't know, but I do, that's why I want to make it better.I'm not planning to leave any time now, and I know Waterbury has its down side, but like I said, anybody could complain, (Like the Baltimore Ravens Yesterday vs the Patriots, GO PATS! 12-0 baby!) Sorry,now we could do three things, move to the best cities/ towns, in Connecticut, move out of Connecticut, or stop being arrogant, and try to do our part in our community, to make the place we live in better. I understand that not everyone is going to do there part, but if WE really cared, WE would. Hopefully enough people will care, and work together to make a change.

I think it would be impossible to have a best/worst list, since everyone is looking for something different in a town/city. And school systems and crime rates factor into the equation, too. For myself, the fewer people and the less development, the higher up on the list a town is. Trains/buses/shopping/small lots/dense housing/large populations would be on the worst list.

Chris - You sound like a very smart young man. I think that you have a great attitude and can go far to help improve your hometown. Too bad there are not more people like you around. Keep it up and you will go far. Jay

If you read the entire post you will see that BigHouse9 lives outside Raleigh, North Carolina and finds it to be very hectic. Parts of Connecticut are just as hectic, but parts are not. I would guess BigHouse did not live in Fairfield, New Haven or Hartford counties. Just a guess though. Jay
