Everybody else in the exclusive neighborhood has to abide by restrictions enforced by the local City of Hartford Historic Preservation Commission, which requires that such air-conditioning units be located on the ground and hidden from sight.
It's common for homeowners to have run-ins with neighbors. The people next door may have a dog that barks all night, mow their lawn at 6 a.m., or build an unsightly addition that violates regulations. If the neighbors don't listen, the homeowner can pursue the issue with town or state authorities as a last resort.

The Old State House on Main Street in Hartford houses one of the most patriotic paintings in the nation.
July 4 is a great day for celebrating our nation's independence. But next Saturday, July 11, is a great day for remembering why we celebrate, by visiting the Old State House on Main Street in Hartford. There hangs one of the most patriotic paintings in the nation, John Trumbull's "Declaration of Independence."

Looking for a new hiking spot?
When you see a red-tailed hawk soaring and screeching above you, chances are you are approaching an rocky overlook. If you approach a monarch butterfly floating in the air, chances are there is a meadow filled with milkweed and wildflowers nearby.

Do colleges take advantage of athletes?
Documents in the Gilder Lehrman Center at Yale University reveal that every state in the Confederacy had laws to prevent slaves from being educated.

America's oldest continuously published newspaper.
Introduction

The Hartford Courant was founded on October 29, 1764, as a weekly newspaper (The Connecticut Courant) and has never missed a publication since its inception. It's the newspaper in which George Washington placed an ad to lease part of his Mount Vernon land. Thomas Jefferson sued this newspaper for libel - and lost. And Mark Twain tried to buy stock in this paper but his offer was turned down.

The paper won the 1992 Pulitzer Prize for Explanatory Journalism for a series of stories on the flaws that plagued the Hubble telescope, and the 1999 Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News Reporting for the in-depth coverage of the tragic events of the shooting at Connecticut Lottery headquarters.

In 2013, The Hartford Courant was one of three Pulitzer Prize finalists in the Breaking News category for "complete and sensitive coverage" of the school shooting in Newtown, Conn., and for "using digital tools, as well as traditional reporting, to tell the story quickly while portraying the stunned community's grief."
