The building is in an area that has been undergoing major redevelopment with a lot of funding from the State of Connecticut. At one point the local art museum -- the Wadsworth Atheneum -- was going to take the building over and make an administrative office out of it in order to free up more exhibition space in its main building across the street.
But, that deal fell through and the economic downturn has put other possibilities on the shelf. Until the economic environment resumes, the shell of the Hartford Times building stands as an abandoned hulk.
I am out of town this week, so I don't have new snow photos from the big storm.
