New England | Reddit by /u/condornormandy33 - 1M ago

You've probably heard this from a Yankee old timer at least 50 times in your life. Be it disregard for historical protections to favour industrial growth or urban development, the corruption in our governments, the erosion of our culture, poverty and homelessness, extreme gentrification or the denial of our states' self interest, Yankees are known for their keen identification and subsequent depressingly lackluster dismissal of problems.

We used to get mad and burn stuff down. Where did that spirit go?

New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu: ‘I come and poach businesses all the time’ from Connecticut and New York.

New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu took a shot at Connecticut’s lackluster economic growth Wednesday, asserting if he were governor here, “I’d fix Connecticut in 20 minutes.”

“The problem with places like New York and Connecticut and California is they don’t manage themselves, they don’t put themselves in a position to be successful because they’re worried more about the politics and less about what actually gets better results,” Sununu, a Republican, said during an in-studio interview on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” in New York City. “When business screamed to the state of Connecticut ‘You need to cut taxes, stop abusing us or we’re walking away,’ and then they did walk away ... what was Connecticut’s response? Nothing. It’s insulting.

CT Gov Ned Lamont reponse: “You might have your catcher’s mitt, but you’re striking out on attracting Fortune 500 companies, CT has 16 and NH has 0."

I’m trying to do a mini kayak ‘trek’ on Lake Winnipesauke. Does anyone know any islands you can camp on/campsites on the lake?

My fiancé and I will be visiting Boston on July 4 & 5. We will then be renting a car and driving up to Portland, ME and stay there overnight on the 6th. We will drive back to Boston in the late afternoon on the 7th and leave for the airport around 6 pm.

What coastal towns do you recommend we hit on the way up? We are all about the journey being part of the experience, so we are fine spending lots of time driving up to Portland and stopping along the way!

My Family and I live in MA on the south shore - we recently started talking about possibly moving to RI and we are trying to weigh out the pros and cons. Both states are expensive tax wise, but houses are more affordable in RI.

We have been looking into the differences in taxes (property, sales, income, car insurance etc), but we’d like to hear from Rhode Islanders and people who have lived in both states your ‘pros & cons”.

What do you think? What’s your opinion on living in MA vs RI and vise versa?
