Gallery Copy: In 1998, a group of local organizations, including Business for Downtown Hartford, the Connecticut Capitol Region Growth Council, the City of Hartford, the Hartford Downtown Council, the Greater Hartford Chamber of Commerce, the Greater Hartford Convention & Visitors Bureau, the Greater Hartford Tourism District, MassMutual, and the State of Connecticut Office of Policy and Management got together to provide support for this attractive pictorial map of downtown Hartford. Though the map presents a very positive vision of the city, the fact that so many local agencies were involved in promoting and enhancing the city's image suggests deep underlying concerns about its economic well-being.
Description: Pictorial map of Hartford, from Prospect Avenue on the west to East Hartford on the east and from Albany Avenue in the north to New Britain Avenue and Elliot Street in the south. Streets and highways are accurately depicted and exit numbers and exit ramps are shown. Three suggested walks are indicated by red, black, and blue lines. Bus routes are shown. Neighborhoods (West End, Asylum Hill, Parkville, Frog Hollow, Behind the Rocks, Barry Square, South Green, South End, Barry Square, Clay Arsenal, Sheldon-Charter Oak, South Meadows) are indicated by yellow signs. Pictures of many buildings, parks, and other attractions are used to show their locations. A key at the right lists Hotels, Shopping Areas, Parks and Recreation, Colleges and Universities, Hospitals, Transportation, Government Offices, Regional Services, Connecticut's Top Companies in Hartford, Religious Institutions, Good Works, Restaurants and Clubs. On the verso are lists of Metro Hartford Activities and Hartford Activities.
