New London, CT! We have community gardens sprouting up everywhere, an artists' cooperative and other studio spaces, an indie bookstore, a thriving music scene, colleges, two gay bars, a peace and justice network, a great beach and a waterfront downtown. We have Soldiers and Sailors Monument where people protest or--as one of our locals sometimes does--hold a clear sky blue sign. We have a natural foods co-op with over 1000 members and three weekly farmers markets in season, a mid-winter arts extravaganza with an unjuried show, music, film, indie fashion and a 24-hour playwriting festival, and a wealth of locally roasted coffee. All this in a city of under 30,000!
