Hartford Ct is 18 sq miles of urban decay. Once great city is now drug infested and crime ridden. The city government is single party rule and elected a mayor that had a history of being a gang banger. Surprise he left office over corruption. It has high taxes and still poorly maintained. Education rating of a "B" is laughable. No one with a choose would send their kids to Hartford public school system. People using suburbans address of relatives to send their kids schools in Bloomfield, Windsor, Wethersfield or West Hartford is common. The Hartford schools lost accreditation in 1997. Its just plain grimmy trash everywhere. I do not recommend anyone move there. I left for Nashville TN and its better city then Hartford has been in my lifetime. I will say Trinity College despite the area is one of best liberal arts colleges in country. The Wadsworth, and Mark Twain House are worth seeing.
