Spoken truly like someone who doesn't know how to read a map or open their eyes to reality.

About ten years ago, while my son and I were driving up to Cape Cod (it was our first trip to New England) we stopped off at Mystic CT and fell in love with that little town on the water. I wouldn't mind retiring there someday.

I live in New England and I see small towns like this all the time. It is much more beautiful than the pictures can capture.

That's alot of residents and crime based on 2007 figures for a small town.

I had never considered Norwich to be a small town.

Wedged between the nation's two largest Indian casinos, both trying to wrestle the title of 'biggest' casino from the other. ['Mohegan Sun / Moon' and 'Foxwoods']

With a near by Navy base, a shipyard, and a pharmaceutical plant, I never thought of it as small.

I owned that property before the casinos came to town, back then it had far less crime.
