I have a job offer pending in Hartofrd,CT? Is Hartford a goodplace to live for a white single 27 year old male
The job is actually in Bristol,CT. I would be moving from the San Fernando Valley portion of Los Angeles. I have a job offer pending with a company in Bristol,Ct. I'm concerned that Connecticut may be to country/suburban for me. Another concer of mine is limited service to Bradley airport. Most flights require a plane change in Las Vegas, Chicago, Dallas or Atlanta. Does anyone think this is a good move if I get offered the job? The job only pays $25,000 anually. This job is for ESPN networks. I got my BA degree in radio-tv and film almost 4 years ago. ESPN would be a good company to start off with.

I love New York, but I'm still trying to adapt to life here eight years later. People are pretentious, selfish, oblivious, rude, and think Connecticut is the center... More

ESPN is a great place to work for. The area is not country, but it is very suburban. There are nice parts of Hartford and downtown was hit hard by a number of factors but is rebounding, if you like city life. Also West Hartford is sophisticated but somewhat older. There are cheap suburbs like Newington... More

hartford is not a bad city (if your in a good part of the city) my father lives in Rocky Hill which is literally a ten minute drive from downtown (30 minutes from bristol).
