Capital city of Connecticut. Abandoned after 5pm when all the insurance company workers take their daily white flight back to Farmington, Glastonbury, and Avon, where they are far less likely to get shot or carjacked. Hartford is a city so sad that it lost its one professional sports team when Whalers hockey left. A city so sad that *I* had to be the first one to define it. If it wasn't for the Wadsworth Atheneum or the insurance companies it wouldn't be on the map.
Me and my UConn friends go to Hartford on Saturday night to bar hop. Make sure you avoid the north end unless you want to get jumped.

A city that is known mostly as the capital of Connecticut and "the Insurance capital of the world". With companies like Aetna and Travelers having their presence here, I guess that's a valid statement.

But it's also funny. Because this is a city where you are very likely to damage/lose your car, your workplace, apartment, and your life. So yeah, you might need insurance.

Overall it's not a city where you would go shopping with your girlfriend or take your family for dinner.

Me: You're fucking stupid.

The capital city of Connecticut. Known as "the hartbeat" or "the beat" by it's residents. It's famous for two things, the whalers and insurance companies, however the whalers left and so did a bunch of insurance companies. nowadays it's pretty dangerous after about 6:00 pm and there's a good chance of being mugged.
Hartford calls its self the rising star of the east when really it's crashing pretty bad.

i live just outside hartford and have only been there 10 or 15 times because it's pretty dangerous.

Capital City of Connecticut. Also called “The Heartbeat” or the “Beat” for short. Third smallest city in the state in terms of Population but 1st or 2nd in crime rate. The North end is populated by primary African Americans, while the South End seems to have more Hispanic people. The south end is more known for their “Business” while the North has generally been the more dangerous. Heroin/Fentanyl and Crack sales are abundant, as the south end is almost an open air market. With some of the most corrupt police forces in the state, and the same failing policies for decades, the City is unlikely to change.
Person 1: “you can give me a ride to Hartford?”

America may run on Dunkin, but this town runs on Mountain Dew and Copenhagen. If you aren’t banging your cousin, there’s a good chance you’re banging a cow instead. There’s more people than teeth, and more cows than people. Hartford also has a tavern and a stewarts so you never have to buy groceries again. If you have all of your teeth or are an African American I’d stay as far away from this town as possible.
What’s the difference between a girl from Hartford and a cow?
Cows don’t wear flannels
