"This city should be ashamed" Hartford Warnings Or Dangers Tip by CTGal1983

Hartford Warnings and Dangers: 14 reviews and 2 photos

I'm ashamed to admit I'm from Connecticut and fear going into most areas of Hartford. On one occasion I was in the North End of Hartford during the day and stopped at a gas station to get directions to the Wadsworth Athaneum (Art Museum) so I could do work for a class. The gas station attendant told me to get into my car and never get out in the North End if I could help it.

On another occassion a friend and I stopped to get directions to a concert and were aproached by a rather large crack head lady who said "GIVE ME MONEY I'M HUNGRAAYYYY" We were terrified, got back in the car and sped off. DO NOT GET OUT OF YOUR CAR!!!!

In the past few years things have gotten better downtown near the Capitol building/Bushnell theater area but still use precaution and don't ever walk alone.
