I think part of the issue Newington is having right now.  They have a system written in a fairly obscure database (well, compared to SQL server or Oracle) and written in C++ in that section of CT

That area (plus closer to NYC) has a LOT of financial companies, all of whom seem to be looking for C++ developers with high performance database experience.  Basically, you want that, you have to pay.  These are the kind of guys who, if they are willing to go to Manhattan are going to be pulling in the BIG bucks (particularly when you count bonus) - as in north of 200K, and last I looked, the league isn't looking to pay anywhere near that kind of cash...
