It was just a small town,by today's standard.

By today's standard, Hartford is still quite small. Detroit is damn near 8x the size of Hartford, for example.

Yes, I agree. It has a very small footprint, and you can be out of the city and into something like country in minutes.

For reference New Haven had 86,000 people and Bridgeport had 48,000. Hartford had 50,000. Even Waterbury had just 25,000, the rest were way smaller.

Probably a lot safer, especially near the Mark Twain house and where the Webster theater is today..
