Danbury Makes List of Top 10 Places in Connecticut You Should Never Move to
Nick Johnson is a Youtuber with hundreds of thousands of subscribers.
He does the kind of videos that tell you this place is fun, this place is not fun, this is a good place to live and this is a bad place, etc. Nick has gotten so much feedback from his work on social media that he's become a consultant, telling families where they should/should not move based on their needs.
A month ago he put out a video titled: "10 Places in CONNECTICUT You Should NEVER Move To."
The video's description reads:
Wow there are some really terrible parts of Connecticut, I'll tell you that!
Connecticut, It’s a unique state located in southern New England. It’s scattered with a mix of rural towns and coastal cities. It’s best known for its beautiful fall foliage, being home to Yale University, and for being the richest state in America… or what many Connecticut residents would say, the most expensive. There’s a lot of snobs here, and you might not quite fit in.
But not every part of Connecticut is nice. There are some really bad places here, too. For this video, we’re going to look at the worst places you can live in the state of Connecticut. That way, if you decide to move here, you’ll know which parts of this state to avoid.
Now, lots of people ask - what makes a bad place to live? Well, these are the places where the crime is high, places are rundown, people are out of work and the homes are really cheap. Plus, I took into account YOUR opinion everyone. You people in Connecticut know where the bad and good areas are. So let’s take a look at the worst places you can live in Connecticut.
I watched it because I am a fan of his videos and everything was fine until I got to #8 on the list. Nick named Danbury one of the 10 Places in CT You Should Never Move to. He said Danbury is boring, Danbury is expensive and Danbury is out of style.
10 Worst Places in Connecticut According to Nick Johnson
#10 - Ansonia
#9 - Norwalk
#8 - Danbury
#7 - New Britain
#6 - New London
#5 - Derby
#4 - New Haven
#3 - Waterbury
#2 - Hartford
#1 - Bridgeport
Hey Nick, Danbury is expensive, Danbury's unemployment numbers could use some work, the crime needs to be worked on a little, but to say it's boring or out of style is a FULL swing and miss. There is more style on one block in Danbury than there is in most full cities in CT.
Nick, did you know that there have been two documentaries produced about real Danbury stories recently?
- Untold: "Crime & Penalies" - Netflix - The Story of the Danbury Trashers - Released August 2021
- Generation Hustle - HBO Max - The Story of Ian Bick - Released 2021
Did you know that Danbury has had two UFC Champions in the last year? Their names are Glover Teixeira and Alex Pereira. Danbury doesn't just do MMA, our boxing scene is amazing as well.
Danbury has a semi-pro hockey team: The Danbury Hat Tricks and we happen to be one of the most diverse (sexiest) cities in America. Pull your head out of your spreadsheets bro.
