CT has nice some suburban family oriented towns with top rated public schools, nice shoreline towns. In towns like Fairfield and Westport it seem every car is 2014 model year or higher BMWs, Corvettes, Mustangs, Audi, Porsche, Benz, Lexus etc.

As someone who is Italian from a rust belt Upstate NY city that is 30% Italian ancestry, that's really good to know.

I guess I just wasted all this time on the 80+ pizzerias here.

It's basically the NJ of New England.

CT separates New York and Boston (even though Boston doesn't border it, but sports wise, culturally) and NJ separates New York and Philadelphia (culturally, sports).

Wealthy counties, shores/beaches, etc.

NY pizza is good for sure(I lived in NYC for 12 years) but CT is still the best IMO
