Do you live in Bristol or East Bristol?
Online, East Bristol has a location option on Facebook.
It’s also listed on FedEx as a location.
In 2014 The Roundup polled 50 people at Stop & Shop in Bristol Plaza and Shop Rite Plaza on Rt. 6.
Participates were asked where they lived and if they travel to Bristol’s downtown area.
Out of the 50 Bristol residents polled, 42 said they lived in the northeast section and the Forestville section of Bristol.
Only 7 noticed East Bristol online.
Participating residents were also asked to add their own two cents on Bristol’s cultural and geographic divide at the time.
“Bristol is definitely two towns, I live off Steven St. and have no need to go downtown.”
“That part of town reminds me of New Britain or Waterbury, I’m afraid to hit someone on the street because everyone just walks across the street as they please.”
“It’s embarrassing to have a thriving Rt 6 but have a downtown that is in limbo.
“I live on Stafford Ave, you do the math.”
Fast forward to 2018: Do You Live in Bristol or East Bristol?

Crawling out of our mosquito-net covered beds, perched high in wooden treehouses that tower over the jungle floor, we grab our binoculars for a closer look as these lively animals leap through the trees in the distance, the leaves around them shaking wildly as the branches bounce up […]
The Asian longhorned tick most likely began invading the United States years ago.
