Hard Hittin, Takin a Hit
NEW BRITAIN: The website homesnacks.net, an ‘infotainment’ website named New Britain one of the “worst places to live in Connecticut.” The website claimed that there was a one in thirty three chance of being victimized by crime in a year’s residency. And added the city ranks in the bottom for income levels, people out of work and schools.
Recently ranked an All-America City designation, the Chamber is seeking a new slogan without the “blue collar,” Hard Hittin’ theme.
Joined in the bottom ten of places to live in Connecticut: Windham at No. 10, Derby 9, Meriden 8, New Britain. 7. New Haven 6 followed by Bridgeport, Hartford, New London, Waterbury and Willimantic.
Perhaps not to form, New Haven is experiencing a housing boom with tens of millions of new investment to serve residents streaming into the city to ostensibly “live there.”
