It's a 45 minute drive northeast. Waterbury is further north. Where's Brauers taking you?

A little map orientation for you. That wasn't so hard was it?

New Haven CT

Pros:
1) very affordable housing
2) Small but nice size Chabad community
3) 1:30 to NY by car without traffic
4) Good school for kids
5) No problem with parking
6) There are nice parks, beaches, outdoor activities for kids and adults etc.
7) Small city e.g. unlike NY where you have to wait 6 months to have ConEd install an electric meter it can be done here in days.
8)Kosher food accessible i.e. Chalav Yisroel milk and Pas Yisroel bread. It's nice for outside the big communities like NY.

Cons:
1) No Kosher restaurants
2) For those looking for other communities there's not much outside the Chabad community
3) There's only one school, so there aren't many choices
4) Crime rate is high in some areas, but that doesn't affect us much
Spent a year there. Very close knit family environment, very nice people.

This plus a cringe-worthy 1:40+ train commute to GC (not to mention a whopping $436 monthly ticket) basically means it's not an option if you want to continue working in the city. It's not terrible from the perspective of being close enough to go in for a day of 'Jewish' shopping, so it's not a full 'Con', but it's probably not exactly a 'Pro' either.

I actually considered that a pro. Close enough that you can come in whenever you want, far enough that you don't have to if you don't. >:D

One school + another (or at least a fraction of another). As far as I remember they go prek though high school...

But admittedly a pain if you have to make the commute a few times a week.

Who needs to come in a few times a week. I barely come in once a month. It's a pro because if my sister has a boy it's a breeze to drive in an hour an half for a bris etc. If you don't work in the city why would you drive in so often? Most people in town commute far less than people in NYC.

And for the many, many people who have jobs that require them to be in the city every workday, it's a con. So just enjoy it and don't make the rest of us jealous ;)

No Kosher restaurants? What happened to that Chinese place?

Closed. They did open a pizza place in the JCC.
