Where is it?
The neighborhood is a typical New England one with a quiet, wide street and houses that are fairly far apart. Neighbors walk around this area, alone or with their dogs. All the homes have large lawns and trees. Forests, rivers and lakes are around us. We are approximately five minutes from the nearest shopping center and seven minutes from the beach. It takes about 45 minutes to drive or take the train into New York City. There are many other day-trips that one can take from here including: Philadelphia, Boston, the beautiful and historic Hudson Valley, or the picturesque coastal Connecticut towns. Stamford itself has much to offer in the way of theater, restaurants, and shopping. A lovely park is adjacent to the beach. Stamford's neighboring towns in Fairfield County, Greenwich, Darien, New Canaan, and Westport, are all worth a trip. Large Long Island beaches are about 1-2 hours away.
