The roads are terrible, people have no respect for you or others, there is nothing to do with your kids. There are abandoned houses everywhere you go in the city, crime is getting worse. I could sit here and type a 3 page review, if you dont believe me come to the city and find out on your own, this city sucks.
Its a great change of pace from where i come from but i would like to see the streets cleaned up again a little more safety
Some neighborhoods are nice and calm, others aren’t. Also safety is an issue in some places. You must do some reasearch before moving to a neighborhood. I advise to check the crime background of the surroundings of where you are planning to move to.

Waterbury is turning into a hot mess. there are shootings every day now, drugs everywhere not the brass city it once was. get out now. but life was good there no doubt.
Personally this city was great growing up. I had great neighbors and a lot of friends around the neighborhood. Now the city is somewhat rundown in certain areas. There wasn't all the violence that is going on now. Although this is all occurring, Waterbury will be always be a "home away from home".
Leadership within the town. More programs for low income housing. Not enough after school programs to keep these young children busy.
Parts of Waterbury are nice to live in. Rent and mortgages are fairly low compared to neighboring towns. Now that the highway construction is coming to an end, it is easier to navigate Waterbury and get from point A to point B.
The only thing I like about in Waterbury would have to be the mall, palace theatre and the college downtown. There are a couple nice areas including some of the parks and certain neighborhoods. Other than that the town is awful there's too much crime way to many drugs and overall the people of this town are just angry and miserable. They need to clean this town up and get some more things for people to do.
The main thing i like about Waterbury is despite the lack of activity and the crime rate you can meet a lot of people that enjoy the same things you enjoy keeping you out of trouble. through that one person you will meet plenty more that are striving to better their own lives. here in Waterbury everyone knows everyone.
I love the history of the city. From the Brass Mills, to the green, the city itself is a work of beauty. Holy Land is continuously being worked on to bring that attraction back. the I-84 project is almost done too which will make travel so much easier.
Waterbury is mostly a commuter town. Hard to find childcare. Not a lot of large employers. Construction is a constant thing here. Finishing up a highway widening project.
The roads are horrible, the city needs major renovation. The city is close to all major highways, so the the commute is great. Crime is bad in certain areas
I like that there's public transportation, there are some areas that are really nice and quiet and there's a lot of resources available for individuals in need of services.
Ive lived here my whole life so I love the place. There are things like getting the community together to clean up the streets. Also more jobs could be added to help get the unemployed on their feet.
I grew up in waterbury. When I was younger my sisters and I really enjoyed it. It was quiet and the people were nice. Now things are getting worse. For the last few months it’s constant terrible news about Waterbury. People getting shot, killed, businesses being broken into, vandalism, and cars getting stolen. It’s just been terrible and I really can’t wait to leave this place.
I liked Waterbury because it was easy to commute to school and work but with the constructions for the past 7 years it has been difficult.
While being in Waterbury, I've loved how quiet it is and how friendly people are. It's such a huge difference coming from a big city where everyone and everything is fast paced. At first, i couldn't even sleep because of how quiet it was, i was used to sirens and people yelling but after awhile, i tended to enjoy it.

Overall Waterbury is a poor city within CT. There has been increase in crime lately, more deaths then usual. Many people are adicted to narcotics.
Waterbury is a nice town but rough at times. It is amazingly diverse and has a bunch of amazing people who care about the community they live in.
The real estate market is high, public schools are below average, infrastructure is poor and not improving.
