Richest Cities In Connecticut

June 14, 2024

Connecticut is a small state sandwiched right between NYC and Boston. Between Yankees and Red Sox, Giants and Patriots. With no subway system, no NFL or MLB team, and no specific accent, there's not much Connecticut itself is known for. It does have UCONN (Go Huskies!), Mystic Pizza, (which despite the movie, does not have good tasting pizza), and a ton of insurance companies. And while Connecticut is full of rural, poor, and small towns, when people think of Connecticut they generally think of the wealthy parts. There’s a reason why a lot of highly successful people that work in New York City tend to commute in from a certain area in Connecticut. So, what are some of the richest cities in Connecticut? Take a look at the top cities below.
