Truth be told, we can only aspire to reach Glastonbury status! You guys have a great mix of commercial/retail/residential. All we can seem to attract is dollar/discount stores and nail salons.

The historic district is pretty nice, though. And I've definitely consumed my share of Main St. Creamery ice cream!

Are you related to the ice cream lady?

Southeast corner my whole life, can't get away from the Sound. Although most of these towns were traditionally working class-fishing, small mfg, small farm- villages. Now the small villages are summer homes for the affluent or the larger towns are slowly getting homogonized by big box strip malls. Progress PHHHT!

Raised in Naugatuck, currently a 3 year resident of Ansonia. The valley sucks. There are so many better towns in the state, I hope to get unstuck from the valley one day. If I had to pick a favorite town, I would look at Oxford or Milford. Granted, I am not widely traveled in CT, even with my long history here, but those are two towns I know I could live in.

Interesting. I have family that came over on the Mayflower as well. Samuel Fuller. Wonder if they knew each other.

I live in the north eastern part of CT. It's pretty Quiet out here. Alot of state forest (pachaug) around. Very Scenic especially in the fall with all the leaves changing. Great part of the state for hiking, fishing, biking etc. Got some great ice cream places like "Brown cow cafe" and Buttonwood Farms (ALWAYS PACKED). Fall brings the corn mazes and hayrides. Very fun

Did you know that "Swamp Yankee" is a derogatory term used by British occupiers against us during the American Revolution ? It was started against residents of My home town of Thompson (Originally the North Parish of Killingly )
