I love Fall, I love Danbury, and I love what happens when the two collide.
There is nothing better than a sunny, autumn day in the Hat City. The history of the city feels more tangible and the colors jump at your eyes. If you can overlook the honking horns and the manic screams (I can), a ride down Main Street in the fall could brighten anyone's perspective.
Some of Danbury’s Most Remarkably Obscure Fall Facts and Fun Photos
I took some photos of Danbury during the fall of 2022 and I have paired them with some random, interesting fall facts about the city.
Danbury’s beauty lies in its diversity. Yes, we are one of the most culturally diverse cities in America, but our rainbow effect does not stop there. Our home activates all of the senses and smacks you in the face with stories of the past.

The fact is, people are not listening, they are overlooking my passion for my family, my city and my radio show. Those are enough for me, they fill up my buckets and anything that gets between me and them is an aggravation.
