The following is my latest Ultimate Blogging Challenge Entry. Enjoy!
Meriden is known as Connecticutâ€™s Silver City. This is because our founders thought that we werenâ€™t quite good enough to be considered Connecticutâ€™s Gold City. This feeling of â€˜second bestâ€™ is really what sets Meriden apart from other New England cities.
Meriden is halfway between Hartford and New Haven: The Perfect Location! In the words of Robert DeNiro, who filmed JACKNIFE in our lilâ€™ city:
I go to Paris, I go to London, I go to Rome, and I always say, ‘There’s no place like New York. It’s the most exciting city in the world now. That’s the way it is. That’s it.
And Meriden, my friends, is only 2 hours from New York! Imagine that!
Although Iâ€™ve only lived here for a year, it feels like forever. Because Iâ€™m so new to Meriden, I decided to take this Ultimate Blogging Challenge to the streets. I went to all my favorite hot spots and created the Meriden Monopoly Game Board below. Click on the individual properties to see the a photograph of the location with some a brief description that will hopefully help you get a feel for my city! Use your browserâ€™s back button to return to the Monopoly Board.
I love Meriden, you will too.
