Gallery Copy: The town of Newington consists of mainly residential areas and serves as a classic bedroom suburb for nearby Hartford. The Berlin Turnpike, originally the main road from Hartford to New Haven, slices through the town. By 1993 the Berlin Turnpike had been largely superceded by the interstates and was known for its restaurants, motels, and strip malls..Newington was also the site of the Newington Children's Hospital and a United States Veterans Hospital. In 1996, patients from the Newington Children's Hospital would be transferred to the newly completed Connecticut Children's Medical Center in Hartford. The veterans hospital continued to serve as a cornerstone for veterans healthcare in Connecticut into the twenty-first century.
