A study published on MSN.com in 2015 used slightly different criteria to rank the richest towns in America. Newtown was one to make the list. The median income here is $116,771 versus the state average of $71,346. Despite being known for the tragic 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, the town is home to many families and barely an hour from the capitol of Hartford. New York City is just under two hours away. The town offers many parks, playing fields, and recreational areas. While some residents commute to jobs at GE, IBM and Pepsi, major local employers include the Board of Education, Charter Communications, and a couple of healthcare facilities. Residents enjoy housing options such as historic colonial homes, waterfront property and mixed use developments. The median home price is $347,500.
