The Brownstone State


The Brownstone State
«штат коричневого песчаника», «штат мягкого песчаника». Штат Коннектикут известен своими каменоломнями в районе города Портленд (добыча коричневого песчаника, который идет на облицовку зданий, богатых особняков); отсюда использование слова brownstone в значении 'зажиточный', 'аристократический' (напр brownstone vote — голоса богатых избирателей). Поэтому прозвище штата Коннектикут ассоциируется с зажиточностью, богатством этого высокоразвитого штата издавна славящегося предприимчивостью, смекалкой «янки из Коннектикута» и зажиточностью его «среднего сословия».
