West Hartford, CT United States

About this community

West Hartford is conveniently located only 2 hours from NYC and 1.5 hours from Boston. It makes for some serious Yankees/Red Sox rivalries, but we somehow manage to all get along! We offer a warm “small town” feel with the amenities of a big city. West Hartford is wonderful for kids, with lots of parks and activities for families, including fantastic libraries, town sports teams for the kids and the adults! We have the country’s leading children’s museums, science museums, art museums, theaters, amusements parks, and more. Connecticut has wonderful outdoors activities all four seasons, but if that isn’t enough, you can take advantage of New England, which is lying at your feet!

New England Jewish Academy is extraordinarily pleased to announce an unprecedented tuition subsidy to assist parents in the Central New England region in giving their children an excellent Jewish day school education.  For more information about our new school, the merger and this exciting tuition initiative, visit  https://www.youngisraelwh.org/schools/neja

Starter homes within the eruv begin as low as $200k, which include a spacious backyard for the family. Apartments are also available near the shuls. The cost of living is low, yet the salaries are comparable to larger communities. Job opportunities are abundant in the insurance capital of the world in neighboring Hartford, which is only a short 7 minute drive away, 12 minutes with traffic. Not too bad of a commute?

Other industries nearby include pharmaceutical, aero/space engineering, medical, academic, plus accounting and law to name a few. We are home to fine universities, such as the University of Hartford, University of Connecticut, Yale, Quinnipiac University, Wesleyan and many more state and private colleges. There are several major hospitals as well, including Hartford Hospital, UConn Medical Center, Connecticut Children’s Medical Center and Yale New Haven Hospital.
