It’s no secret that Danbury, CT is a very diverse city. Every year we put together a nationwide list of America’s most diverse cities and if you search for #Danbury on Twitter, that’s exactly what you’ll see.
I did this recently because I was running out of things “on the web” that interested me and found these recent tweets.
R Media are a well-known visual production team from Danbury who are always on the lookout for new stuff and posted the above tweet on November 15th.
Newly elected mayor of Danbury, Dean Esposito, tweeted a photo from his first day in office on December 1. I didn’t even know he had Twitter, I was about to text him recently and tell him this social media thing is out of fashion so he might want to jump on board, but he then surprised me by having and using a twitter account.
The Tweet above is my favorite of all the #Danbury posts I’ve seen. Someone with the username @ Granye-West posted this photo of a pizza that didn’t quite make the cut. You only had one job! Hell, you can’t cut a pizza this badly unless your eyes are closed and you have paper cuts all over 9 of your ten fingers.
Former Danbury Mayor Boughton was back on Twitter predicting snowfall on November 28. This is a sign of intense boredom. When posting about the potential for precipitation, you’ve officially watched all the videos on Tik-Tok and you have things to do.
David Arconti is a CT State Representative for Danbury and apparently in June Danbury High School gave him a badass hatmakers football helmet to display in his office. With all due respect to Mr Arconti, my Danbury approval numbers eclipse his. One of these amazing headsets would be highly regarded for the I-95 studio and they would actually be seen daily on our live videos on social media.
In May, @Portuguese Chef posted a photo of this delicious Pastel De Nata, a Portuguese pastry. The chef posted the photo with the caption “Best in Danbury” and now it’s my life’s mission to find and try them out.
John Roche posted this lovely autumn photo of his garden in Danbury.
@Bobby Vee shouted the hit and controversial documentary “Untold” in September. The very popular sports documentary “Crime and Penalties” told the story of the Danbury Trashers and the Galante family.
At the end of October, Glover Teixeira, a resident of Danbury, became the UFC light heavyweight world champion and shared his victory with Hat City.
On October 20, Drew Lyons reported his theft at Danbury Airport.
In early November, Fernely Feliz Jr. announced his debut in professional boxing.
Tara O’Neil posted this one in September about Drake wearing a Danbury Trashers jersey. That’s when we knew for sure that the Danbury Trashers documentary was a huge deal and resonated with people far beyond Danbury.
Then there was the moment when CT Governor Ned Lamont came to Danbury to support mayoral candidate Roberto Alves on Election Day. Alves didn’t end up winning but the race couldn’t have been closer with just over 100 votes separating Dean Esposito from Roberto Alves.
Danbury Bennigan’s building is demolished
Bennigan’s restaurant has been closed for many years in Danbury, Connecticut, but the building has remained empty. The people of Hat City must have watched horror for too long in a prominent location at 106 Federal Road. Today, 03/23/21, the building was taken down and I-95 was there to witness it and capture these exclusive footage.
Explore one of Danbury’s most disorganized and dangerous turns
Nothing to see here, just an impossible turn, configured in an absurd way that leads to chaos and confusion behind the wheel of Hat City. The residents of Danbury are infamous for their complaints about our roads, as there is a lot to complain about. I would like to add to this long and distinguished list by pointing out a disastrous turn to downtown. Let’s take a look at one of Danbury’s most disorganized + dangerous towers.
