Bloomfield is great place to raise your children.

Houses are priced around 80k, there is a local park in walking distance, it's a safe suburb, and there's many educational resources offered by the state of CT.

Bloomfield is also a great place to retire because there are many resources for the elderly.

The police are always driving around the neighborhoods making sure everything and everyone is okay. Sometimes when I am walking my dog and they drive past me, they wave. Crime rarely happens in Bloomfield. I think that is because the people are good people, and mostly everyone is friendly.

Everyone is so friendly. In the summer, we have town events and a lot of people come to the center of Bloomfield to enjoy live music and meeting new people. Pets are even welcome to sit in the park and relax with everyone else. Its also very clean, you barely see ant trash on the ground because everyone helps keep it clean.
