Yes, it's true, Bridgeport was chosen the fifth healthiest city in the US, according to livability.com. I have nothing against Bridgeport, I work in CT's largest city, after all, but still, I'm surprised it made number 5.
According to the livability website, to be considered, "These cities provide residents with exercise opportunities, good food choices and strong support networks." When I think of healthiest city in CT, the first city that would come to mind would be New Haven. Why? Because New Haven is home to Yale University and has some of the top doctors in the state. I would also think of towns like Farmington and Simsbury.
