Hartford is about halfway...
Hartford is about halfway inbetween Boston and New York City and is fed by several major highways including the north/south route of I-91 and the east/west route of I-84. I try to avoid I-84 like the plague as it's off and on ramps are so hazardous within the city. Generally I enter the city from Rte 44 which turns into Asylum Avenue and leads to the heart of the city.
Rely on taxi or bus, but even better, drive yourself. It's not a huge city so getting lost isn't too traumatic other than in the area of the city I mentioned in the warnings section of this write-up! There is some sort of method to the madness of traveling there, as there is in any city, but I find it I get lost I get unlost just as easily.
The best transportation is by...
The best transportation is by car. Getting around Hartford can be done on foot, as the city is not unmanageable that way, or by car. If you drive, however, and don't like to park on the street, be prepared to PAY for parking
Buses run, but you really don't need them downtown. You can walk easily to most major sites.
