I've lived in NB for 8 years but after 8 years of suffering the lack of police presence,the worst snow removal process, garbage management "debris all over the streets and sidewalks and finally "sky hight taxes". I am moving out of this city due to those and much more issues. I hope this works to help people understand that is not how they painted it, is the reality. From a very concerned, former NB resident.

A good friend of mine, who lives in New Britain CT, has often said to me that she will never live anywhere else, and every time I visited her I knew why. New Britain looks like the type of city you would see in a Norman Rockwell painting. Surround by soft rolling hills and thick forests, New Britain is filled with red brick buildings and quaint homes. Even with a population of about 90,000 New Britain still looks and feels like a charming little city from the past. A large percentage of the city's residents are European, mostly from Poland which gives the city a unique feel. In the summer an extravagant Polish festival is held with delicious foods and traditional Polish music. It's a great event to see, and experience part of the Polish community in Connecticut.

New Britain is filled with history too. Once known as the "hardware" capital of America, the city was once home to the Stanley Tool company, along with several other large manufactures. New Britain has always been a center of innovation as well, giving birth to the idea of 'dribbling' in basketball as well as claiming invention of the wire coat hanger! Filled with eccentricity and surround with beautiful landscapes New Britain might just be the place to call home.
