Proud to live here! Great people, great diversity, great history, cool architecture, great food, so much potential. Like all cities, it has its share of issues: crime, socioeconomic challenges, but remember the facade of a house does not define the soul that lives within. Come visit.
It can have its charm and beauty, but more often than not the crime and other factors just make it stressful to live in.
Born and raised in Waterbury! I highly recommend the various types of Italian and Spanish restaurants that can be found all over the city!
Overall, Waterbury allows for any kind of people to have a good time no matter when outer town somebody comes from. The people are welcoming and the schools are good. Sometimes Waterbury is looked down upon but the people differentiate from that definition and show that they're something else. If there was something to improve about Waterbury, it would be the roads. Fixing the roads would be something that wouldn't nit pick between economic classes but benefit everyone. It would make the drives safer and just a better experience. Road safety would be a beneficial factor to all without separating the people of Waterbury.
Waterbury used to be factory town and it shows, the last few years it has declined greatly. The mall used to be one of the main reason people even stopped but it no longer has popular stores that people look for. The roads aren't well kept but when the season is right the scenery is beautiful. Waterbury wouldn't my first choice of places to live in CT, but its not the worst.
Waterbury is a place that I will always consider home. It is the place that I have spent all of my life. It is also the place where my grandmother migrated to for a better life . My family has established many things in this city. Some of the establishments are churches, halfway houses, and many different properties. I will always share with people that great things can come from waterbury. Not only can great things come from waterbury but also great people.
Only safe in certain areas, city parks are not maintained well. The playgrounds have graffiti and are dirty which is difficult to take my son. We go to the next town over to visit the park. There's a lot of homelessness and roads need more maintenence. I don't understand where tax dollars are going because it doesn't seem to be going into the city. It's sad because Waterbury has a lot of potential to be a nice city.
Waterbury is a welcoming city and I can testify that it is a very lively place for an individual to live in. I haven't been here for a long time but I find this place a comfortable home whereby small businesses are located everywhere in the town. I know Waterbury is not the safest place but I can say It's the best city to live in. On special weekends, my friends and I go out to see different towns in Connecticut and restaurants to have fun. There is also the Brass Mill mall that my friends and I go shopping. They have so many retail stores along with places to grab a quick bite.
Waterbury is a circle and the outskits in the quiet suburbs are very quiet and safe with better schools. The inner city is where you want to avoid where most crimes are and drugs. Waterbury is a growing real estate market and best time to buy is NOW!
There is a big diversity between people, there are some good people and some that are bad. There is always something happening, sometimes it is very loud because of people's cars.
My experience while living in Waterbury, Connecticut has been interesting. I grew up in a quiet neighborhood on a dead end street, so my personal neighborhood has never been bad. Other parts of the city however, have not been very pleasant. The school system has been good to me, but many fights have broken out even since middle school. Many parts of Waterbury are shady and unsafe, leading to some crime. Other than that, the city is filled with diversity and genuine people. I find it shameful that neighboring towns look down on us, and many are afraid to step foot in the city. It has its flaws, but I have had a decent experience living in the large city for my lifespan.
I have lived in Waterbury for the past 4 years and I have to say it can be a better town. Waterbury has so many beautiful qualities that has yet to be found. I love the trees and the views from the top of the hills. Being from NY this is a total change of scenery for me. I am enjoying my stay here in Waterbury and plan to stay a few more years. Waterbury has many vacant job buildings and I feel they can provide more jobs to the less fortunate.
The community that Waterbury has is welcoming. The people who reside there are friendly and easygoing. There are many small businesses located throughout the town.
It really depends on the area you live and the people you acquaint yourself with. Overall, it's an average city; nothing special to see here, folks!
I currently work and live in the area. Some parts are great and some parts of the city I do not visit
It is great, Waterbury Connecticut is my home and I feel very respected and welcome into the community in Waterbury.
Waterbury is alright but compared to bigger cities there isn't much. There is always some kind of road or utility construction. Restaurants are your usual big name fast food places, extremely few good quality places. Entertainment areas like movies, bowling, karting do exists but there are better places in other neighboring cities.
