QUALITY OF LIFE Posted On: 10/28/2009 12:36:41 PM
Stamford is a medium size city with most of the amenities of a large city and
is within an hour's travel to New York City. Major corporations have their headquarters here and train service is quite good. Roads can be a problem
particularly the reluctance to build new highway "Super 7" or expanding I95.
There are over 100 restaurants in the area of all ethnic specialties and, besides a good diverse housing stock new condos and rentals are springing up.
"Downtown" has been evolving into a lively scene. There are two excellent
public golf courses as well as private clubs in the area. Marine facilities are well developed and there are marinas as well as yacht clubs. The former manufacturing "south end" is being completely redeveloped.
