1. Alexandria

Delaware

1. Henlopen Acres
2. Woodbrook (really, the string of Wilmington suburbs along the Brandywine all qualify)
3. Lewes
VA Beach is cool but upscale or fancy isn't the word that comes to mind when one visits honestly.

How is Falls Church all that fancy? Its fine but hardly a high end community. Tysons is a mall without much else. Alexandria is Arlingtons poor sister.

Great Falls and McLean are definitely in the top three in NoVa. Beyond that its kinda open. If North Arlington was its own thing it’d belong there for sure.

Springfield is part of Massachusetts, it feels like a suburb of Hartford with a shared airport.
A few notes:
  • Springfield is a pretty big city in its own right, with its own suburbs. It's definitely a close neighbor of Hartford, but I'd never call it a "suburb of Hartford".
  • Mystic (or half of it at least) is a neighborhood of Stonington. The other major player in the southeast is Norwich.
  • If you give Danbury and Waterbury their own areas (and also give Torrington its own little area), you've basically described CT's official census-designated NECTAs.

You are on the money. my bad, never realized that Mystic is not its own independent town, just a village of Stonington and Groton. Well, I think the Mystic name is more well known than the other two due to its tourist attractions and impressive offerings.



Yes, Springfield is more of twin cities with Hartford together. I was told in CT forum that Hartford is more dominant than Springfield on economy and jobs. They are so close.

Nbd. I honestly don’t think the majority of people (even most CT folks) know that. I only know because I lived in Groton for a while. (And I love the state, btw!)

This is definitely true. But still, places like South Hadley, East Longmeadow, and Northampton probably would all identify as Springfield suburbs before Hartford suburbs. (In spite of [probably] pointed efforts at distancing themselves from Springfield).
