Did anyone write the pros and cons of any city in CT? I moved from Brooklyn to CT 2 months ago, and I'm very happy here. If anyone is interested I can share some pros and cons.

Most NY'ers hate NY because of expensive rent and housing and no grass, other than that we're pretty much ok with it. We don't think its the greatest but its pretty good at the end of the day.

Well put.

The humidity is really what scares me off of Florida.

Well there is a meshuganer there now, what do you expect. j/k.

I think every city has scandals. Just big cities like NY, LA, Miami are more in everyone's business so more people find out.

$280k to $420k, depends on how many bedrooms, (from 3 to 5/6) and on on how many stories (1-2).
Its not more humid than NYCn and most people have private pools + there are plenty of empty and private beaches.

Love me or hate me. I still love you.

Not saying much, there's a reason NYC clears out in the summer.

But still I was in MIA in late September and it was too hot/humid to bear.  I don't think NYC is that bad that late in the year.

You run a blog for a living, how much time do you spend outside (in your home city) anyway?  ;D
