Crime City Trivia: Hartford, Connecticut has one of the highest crime rates in the United States

The primary residence of writer Mark Twain, Hartford, Connecticut, is nicknamed the “Insurance Capital of the World” due to the high amount of insurance company headquarters in the area. However, insurance hasn’t protected Hartford from danger.
