In 2001, the Hartford Downtown Entertainment District was simply a concept. Fifteen years later it has become a major activity hub, thriving with entertainment and providing our Capital City with life and culture. A significant aspect that continues to allow this project to flourish is the Mike Peters’ Bridge, connecting various districts together.
