Get the door, it's the liquor store
The lovely little town of Waterbury may feel like a world apart from NYC, but in fact, it’s part of... the family. That’s right — this forested New England town falls within the massive New York City Metropolitan Area, even though you get to drive two hours to get to it, and that’s mostly through forest. Known as Brass City for its illustrious history as one of the leading makers of brassware in the United States, Waterbury today is an assortment of 25 neighborhoods with a wide variety of industries and businesses. These neighborhoods formed from clusters of corner shops at road intersections, which meant that people traditionally stuck within their neighborhood and ventured downtown for fancy things like theater, shopping and other activities. It’s considered one of the best places to raise a family in the country, and with the Naugatuck River flowing through downtown, it’s also one of the prettiest places to live. Imagine gorgeous old brick buildings and streets dusted in crisp winter snow, and you’ll start to understand the reason so many New Yorkahs choose Waterbury as their spot — it’s simply worth the commute.
