The neighborhoods we are looking at are in the Northend of Hartford and Wilson section of Windsor.
The two zip-codes surrounding the area of the proposed park are 06095, Windsor and 06120, a portion of Hartford. Windsor has a total population of 29,103 people while the Hartford zip code has a total population of 14,211 people. These two areas have a comparable population of children under the age of 18: there are 5,691 children in the Windsor zip code and 4,744 children in the Hartford zip code. Within these zip-codes the number of family households varies substantially, Windsor with 7,779 family households and Hartford with 3,134 family households. Family households represent households of married-couple families or other family households, with either a single male or female householder. There is a stark contrast in the median household incomes for these two areas, especially given their close proximity to one another: Windsor at $89,429 and Hartford at $25,154. These two figures when compared to the median income for Hartford County, just under $70,000, proves there is a great disparity between the two areas.
