Review of Meriden, Connecticut

Pricey ghetto
Star Rating - 11/17/2012
I have lived here for over 3 years and the crime has gotten significantly worse. I live on the outskirts but when I watch the news, I am appalled at the amount of crime in this small city. Does not make any sense. Add to that the fact that one will naturally have trepidation about going out in this city after dark makes this a particularly crappy place to live. There is a Westfield Mall but it is one of those types of malls you want to get in and out of as quickly as possible b/c never sure when a ruckus might break out! If looking to relocate, skip this place. Also in checking on environmental disasters, there are brownfields and polluters and one of them is within a mile of my house...great!
