With its low self-esteem and high urban blight, Hartford is the ultimate underdog city. Sad City Hartford documents the joys, sorrows and eccentricities of New England's Rising Star.

Welcome To Hartford

We hope you enjoy your stay! Just a little fender bender by the bus station.


  1. I miss Shelly's Deli> The whole feel that the Civic Center had. Once you walked in there was always something new>The gentleman that did portraits near the Cigar Shop> The Candyman who trusted you when you paid him and The Ice Cream Shop. Great memories

    1. Totally agree , the Civic center was the happening spot! Shelly's Deli was great for after the bars closed for a snack! Hartford needs to be reborn!

  2. That city died a long time ago. Now all there is left is a lifeless husk. Screw Hartford.

  3. that is such a dangerous section - I can't wait till they take down the highway -

  4. had some great ins and outs at that union station... R.Sutherland,,,,big up Z!!
