If you want a variety of ethnicities, I'm sure there are towns in CT that have this, even if it were true (I'm not sure whether it is, but I'm going with your characterization) that the state as whole was very white. If I were choosing between these sections of the NYC metro area, I might consider state politics. Issues such as taxes, for example, might make a difference in any town in a given state, while characteristics such as ethnic makeup, crime, urban vs. suburban vs. rural character, will vary between local communities in any of these states.

you sound ignorant, i live in hartford and not once have i been messed with, i used to live in new haven and the one time i found trouble was after dark, near winchester ave. You can definitely live in ANYONE of the cities you mentioned without getting in trouble, (to whoever moves here) do your research, and stay away from the bad areas, there is a **** load of info on the bigger cities bad areas, know them and stay away.
