Tale of two cities: Home of prosperous in surance companies (above), Hartford also sprawls with tattered ghettos sheltering the poor-mostly blacks and Puerto Ricans (right). But numerous community groups are working to better the city. Concerned citizens have formed the Greater Hartford Process, which seeks to coordinate urban planning. The city-supported Everywhere School (left) interests neighborhood children in learning through visual aids and experimental, un structured methods of teaching.
