Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Connecticut's counties, including Middlesex, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for Middletown.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Middletown - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<4>ZIP Codes have been created by the United States Postal Service (USPS) as a way of grouping addresses to make delivery more efficient. The boundaries of the ZIP Code can be changed, re-assigned, eliminated or overlapped with other ZIP Codes. So keep in mind that any given ZIP Code is only 'loosely' associated with a city (such as Middletown). When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Middletown or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).
<5>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Middletown) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Middletown. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Middletown

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Middletown. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 41.5623, Longitude: -72.6510
