Hartford is the capital city of Connecticut and third largest city in the state behind New Haven and Bridgeport. Incorporated as a city in 1784, Hartford developed into a major source for manufacturing and leveraged its midway location between Massachusetts and New York as a distribution center. Hartford is directly accessible via I-84, I-91, as well as State Routes 15 and 2.
Hartford is home to the Hartford-Brainard Airport, which offers local and charter flights. The nearest international airport is Bradley International Airport in nearby Windsor Locks, CT. Amtrak rail service is also available to and from Hartford.
Over the years, Hartford has evolved into a working-class city with an economy now focused more heavily on the insurance and healthcare industries. Hartford is also home to several higher learning institutions, including the University of Hartford, the University of Connecticut School of Law and Trinity College. As with other Northeast cities, Hartford is also home to several larger hospitals and medical research centers, adding to the diversity of its workforce and overall population.
