Waterbury is a city which is located in New Haven County in Connecticut. Waterbury is close to the actual city of New Haven, and also lies about 30 miles south of Hartford, which is the capital of Connecticut. Waterbury got its name because of the waterways which run through the town and flow into the Naugatuck River, which Waterbury lies next to. The city is also known as the Brass City because in Connecticut's industrial growth period in the beginning of the twentieth century, Waterbury produced brass in abundance. Waterbury has a Metro North Railroad train station which connects to all of the other towns down to Fairfield County. Once connected to a train in Fairfield County a transfer can be made to get to Grand Central Station in New York City. There are several educational institutions in Waterbury, including several public and private high schools, a UCONN campus, Post University, and Naugatuck Valley Community College. There are many things to do in Waterbury, but it is not one of the best towns in Connecticut to move to when looking to start a business or career. The city of Waterbury is not bustling in the same way Manhattan or Stamford, CT are.
