There are some decent parts of it, but most of it is pretty awful. So it tends to be mocked by people from the nicer part of the state. In theory it's actually kinda awful, but I only do it in friendly jest; my best friend is from Bridgeport, along with several other good friends.

Actually, I would take Bridgeport over most of the rich jerks that live in the "nice" part of the state.

Actually Bridgeport is the 3rd highest in the state. New Haven being first and Hartford being second. As well, Trumbull doesn't really "start" the part of CT that becomes "the rich suburbs of New York". Being 32 miles from New York itself, you have to get thru the richest part of the state to get to Trumbull. Places like Byram and Cos Cob and Greenwich, that have Rolls Royce, Bentley, and Ferrari dealers on every corner.

Now I'm not saying that Bridgeport isn't bad. IT IS !!!! But it's only some of it that's bad. The worst "ghetto" area was torn down many years ago and since then it has been coming back. But a previous mayor did admit to snorting cocaine, while in office, another was charged in some fraud and tax evasion stuff and the list goes on.

When I say it starts in Trumbull, what I mean is that after Trumbull, heading towards NYC, it mostly gets richer and "nicer" till you hit Greenwich. Before Trumbull you have Bridgeport and then not too far from there is New Haven. Trumbull is sort of right between the sketchy coastal cities and the snobby rich suburbs.

I could have sworn Bridgeport was #1 in homicides, but maybe that was just a few years ago or something. I thought I read it in the CT Post somewhere. In any case, I like living in a place now where violent crime increased 400%....from 3 violent crimes to 12 Only thing I miss about CT is how many better fish stores there were...

I know New Haven is CT's heroin capital... The abandoned mental hospital that takes up a whole neighborhood is pretty fun to explore- just don't get caught, lol

You think you've got it bad in southern Maine? Try central Maine :P We've got Petco and Petsmart in Bangor, and Vance's in Bucksport. That's practically it.

Oh no, I don't think it's bad down here for pet stores- I live near the seacoast New Hampshire region and live fairly close to a couple of the better lfs'... But there is absolutely no comparison- once you hit southern NH into MA and CT there are incredible fish suppliers seemingly on every corner
