Radius is about what happens when we explore the edges, paths, and landmarks of a city, and meet our neighbors. We’re finding unexpected stories in Hartford, Connecticut close to spots you might already know.
Hartford is often simplified, characterized broadly as a state capital with incredible history that’s also riddled with violence. It’s dying, or coming to life, depending on where you look. You might hear people say that it’s both beautifully diverse and also shockingly segregated.
Some see Hartford as a tiny town in the shadow of Boston and New York. Others see it as the big regional city surrounded by quaint New England towns.
Come along with us as we map Hartford in a new way — through stories that are all about being in a particular place, shaping what we imagine it to be.
