Quote from nurturingkneads
As soon as nursing school is over, we are leaving. Ct is loaded with crime. Hartford, New Haven, Bridgeport, so many guns, so much violence. It is so visually depressing, especially in the winter. Last year, it did not get warm until June. Sorry to e so down on CT, maybe because it is just not home to me.
It's not that we are unfriendly, normally, but your above quote kind of put a nasty taste in my mouth. You state CT is loaded with crime
(but your mentioned state is in the 13th for highest crime rates where as ours is 36th). Its "visually depressing"
(maybe you should venture outside, or out of Hartford, although Hartford has some very pretty places..Connecticut is one of the most beautiful places. Get out of the city and you'll see that. Rolling hills, valleys, mountains, beautiful seaport towns, scenery, folliage, historic places, arts, entertainment..). As for the temp, I guess being from Atlanta, yes it might seem cold to you until June. But take if from someone born and raised in CT, it normally is warmer than it was last June. We had a weird Spring/Summer last year.
Please don't lump the entire state of Connecticut into such a bad generalization. We have our good cities and towns, just like any other State, and we have our bad..like any other State. And just because certain parts of certain cities are "bad" doesn't mean the entire city is. Again, Bridgeport has some gorgeous areas, as does Hartford and New Haven.
