I stayed in the Hartford area for one night in September 2016.  Interestingly, while under 90 miles from Boston, MA, and 80 miles from Providence, RI, signals from both cities were largely absent while in Hartford even though Hartford’s signals were heard in each respective area during my travels through them.  Instead, signals from the south, west and north seemed to be dominant in Hartford.

Additionally, strong radio frequency intereference prevented me from receiving all but the strongest local signals in my hotel while in Hartford.  Because of this, I had to rely mostly on car-based DX for any reception beyond local signals.

The logs below are updated as I revisit the area. HD Radio and RDS screenshots are added when received and they may not reflect the initial logging of the stations listed below.
