STAMFORD REAL ESTATE INSIGHTS

THE PEOPLE AND THE LIFESTYLE 

What’s not to love about Stamford? Blocks away is live music in Columbus Park, Arts and Crafts on Bedford Street, a Farmer’s Market for locally grown fruits, veggies, and flowers, and a giant Thanksgiving Parade Spectacular - one of the largest helium balloon parades in the country. Amid its high-rise glass buildings in the international business district, holiday lights are turned on, and people come from all over to see a rappelling Santa at One Landmark Square. Independent not-for-profit and city-run art galleries, The Avon Theater, Bow Tie Cinemas, Stamford Media Center (for live talk shows); Stamford Symphony, Curtain Call, Monday Night Movies, The Palace Theater, along with a great Public Library and hundreds of restaurants and stores for shopping which attract many from neighboring towns. Stamford downtown has it all and it’s located just minutes to several beautiful residential neighborhoods featuring Long Island Sound, parks, rivers and trails.

Parks are an integral part of living in Stamford – anywhere and everywhere there’s a green space or a wonderful park to throw a Frisbee and jog or ride a bike. In addition, there’s Cove Island and Mill River Park, along with The Stamford Museum and Nature Center, Stamford Dog Park and Sterling Farms, an 18 hole public golf course located on an old rolling farm. The Stamford Museum is regarded for its array of public programs about nature and animals – ideal for children of all ages.
