It’s All About The Journey … Welcome To The Neighborhood!

Stamford’s population continues to grow and we are now the third largest city in Connecticut.  Stamford’s true success lies in the fact that our growth has occurred during one of the most fiscally challenged environments this country has seen in decades.  Stamford’s proximity to New York City, and neighborhoods that enhance a variety of lifestyles, appeal to the influx of new residents.

In the next several weeks, I will spotlight Stamford neighborhoods, all of which have their own unique appeal, and make our city such a vibrant and welcoming place to call home while still making us feel like a small town!

We begin in North Stamford.  For those who value easy access to city conveniences and beach rights but prefer park like settings, North Stamford may be just the right fit for you!  This area is zoned almost entirely for one, two and three acre lots.  Stamford’s most recent master plan affirms a desire to “preserve and protect” the neighborhood’s low density surroundings.

One of North Stamford’s “jewels” is The Stamford Museum and Nature Center, which echoes the sentiment of preserving the beauty and history of this part of town.  Some of the Nature Center’s attractions are Heckscher Farm-a 10 acre oasis dotted with barns, maple sugar houses, open pastures, and dozens of farm animals; the recent addition of  “Nature’s Playground”, a place where the young at heart can experience an exciting playground in the woods, scale a spider’s web to a tree house with a lookout, then wind your way down a tubular slide or zoom down the otter slide; the observatory, planetarium and interactive art exhibits as well as the Henri Bendel Mansion – a perfect event space!
