What do you like about Waterbury? The housing here is very affordable compared to the rest of the state, second to Bridgeport.
What do you dislike about Waterbury? Almost everything. The city has an extremely impoverished urban feel. Racial makeup is about 55% black, 20% Hispanic, 20% White, 5% other, and almost zero asians. Potholes everywhere. Waterbury is notorious for their terrible winter snow removal.
What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in? I don't go anywhere in Waterbury, I drive to other towns for fun.
How expensive is it? Cheap compared to the rest of CT, houses from $40k-$160k on avg. Rent is $300-$600 on avg.
Is it safe? Not where I lived, and not in large areas of Waterbury. a half mile down the road is swarmed with cops every week. A stabbing, assault, domestic violence, multiple car break-ins within the past year.
How is the weather? Look it up on the weather website.
Additional thoughts? Don't live here unless you're used to this type of environment and/or can't afford to live anywhere else in CT. Don't make eye contact with people if you don't have to, people have and WILL take it offensively and confront you. I've seen it.
