Larry Gottesdiener has kept a low profile in Hartford since he lost several office buildings here to foreclosure earlier this decade. But he sat down with HBJ earlier this year for a wide-ranging interview about Northland Investment Corp.'s future in the Capital City. He's shown here standing in front of his most prized Hartford asset, the Hartford 21 luxury apartment tower.
2018 is in the rear view mirror, but there were several stories across Greater Hartford and Connecticut that stood out.
