Evaluation Of The Urban Initiatives Anti-Crime Program - Hartford Connecticut
Hartford is the capital of Connecticut, the state's largest city, and the core of a seven-town chartered metropolitan area. Situated on the west side of the Connecticut River, about 100 miles northeast of New York City and 100 miles southwest of Boston, the city currently depends on a balance of business and industry for its economic vitality. Hartford is sometimes called lithe insurance city" because it is the home of more than 25 insurance companies. Large banking institutions and retail outlets complement the insurance activity, while manufacturing of internationally known products --typewriters, computing equipment, firearms, machine tools and gauges, and jet engines --accounts for an even larger share of the economy.
