5. Bridgeport, CT
Per-capita GDP:

The most populous city in Connecticut is Bridgeport, with a population exceeding 144,000, according to the 2010 U.S. Census. Its place in popular trivia is assured, as it is both the birthplace of the Frisbee and the location of the first Subway restaurant, according to the 2005 book “One Hundred Great Businesses And The Minds Behind Them” by Emily Ross and Angus Holland.
The city’s medical sector is an important source of revenue. In fact, three of its five top employers are in the medical sector. The top employers in the city are St. Vincent's Medical Center, Bridgeport Hospital, People's United Bank, University of Bridgeport and Bridgeport Health Care Center.

1. Hartford, CT
Per capita GDP:

Hartford is the capital of Connecticut and with a per capita GDP of over $75,000, it’s the most productive city on this list. It’s home to some of the largest insurance companies in the U.S., including Aetna, Uniprise and Travelers. The presence of these companies has earned the city the not particularly flashy nickname of “The Insurance Capital of the World.”
Hartford has taken a little bit of a hit in recent years, as several major insurance companies including MetLife and CIGNA, have left the city to set up shop in its less expensive suburbs. However, it hasn’t affected the Hartford’s standing with respect to per-capita GDP, and in this respect Hartford tops the list as the most productive city in the world.
