The first Springfield in the New World, it is the largest city in Western New England, and the urban, economic, and cultural capital of Massachusetts' Connecticut River Valley (colloquially known as the Pioneer Valley). It is the third-largest city in Massachusetts and fourth-largest in New England (Boston, Worcester, and Providence are larger). Springfield has several nicknames – The City of Firsts, because of its many innovations (see below for a partial list); The City of Homes, due to its Victorian residential architecture; and Hoop City, because basketball, one of the world's most popular sports, was invented in Springfield.

Springfield residents use Bradley International Airport (owned and operated by the Connecticut Department of Transportation). Also known as the Hartford-Springfield airport, it lies equidistant between them.
