Mayor Segarra, who has pushed for the acceleration of new business development in the Capital City, including implementing a new permitting process to expedite projects, said “I applaud Nixs for their investment in Hartford, for having the foresight to be a part of the city’s revitalization. We are thrilled to welcome Nixs to our vibrant Front Street district and look forward to residents and visitors having even more to enjoy in our downtown.”

A little about NIXS Mate and the Curse of William Fly:
NIXS Mate is one of the smaller islands in the Boston Harbor Islands National Recreation Area. In 1726, upon his arrest, officials brought pirate captain William Fly to Boston, where he was executed. His body was then gibbetted on Nix’s Mate to serve as a warning to sailors not to turn to piracy. Before his execution, Fly famously scolded the hangman for incorrectly securing the noose, then retied it himself. His body, with those of two other pirates, is buried on the island. Pleading not guilty to the end, one pirate predicted the Island would sink into the sea to prove his innocence. Since 1803, the island has disappeared each day in high tide.
