Community Profile of:

Stamford is an exciting place to live, work and play. It is a busy cosmopolitan center teeming with successful enterprise and cultural enrichment. An explosion of corporate headquarters in the 1980s catapulted an already thriving community to international recognition.

Distinguished commercial and residential districts are aesthetically pleasing and impressive. The stream-lined architecture of the downtown area provides luxurious space for corporate offices, retail stores and residential units. The Stamford Town Center Mall downtown boasts a pleasant indoor environment with over 100 shops and restaurants, and there are dozens more storefronts in the city center.

The city maintains a New England charm despite its built up downtown. Pastoral meadows, thickly-wooded areas and panoramic views of Long Island Sound are the captivating backdrops for a wealth of lifestyles, including elegant contemporaries, sprawling ranches, traditional colonials and deluxe condominiums. Waterfront properties range from inviting cottages to the stately residences of Shippan Point.

The town’s excellent roads and proximity to Interstate 95 and the Merritt Parkway facilitate travel within Stamford and to outlying areas. The city also has three stops on the Metro North Railroad for commuters. CT Transit offers bus service.

Stamford's extensive public school system reflects a dedication to its children and active community involvement. The city also has several private schools, two state charter schools and three college campuses.

Stamford has abundant leisure and cultural amenities. The splendid natural terrain at inland parks and along the pristine coastal beaches of Long Island Sound offers virtually every activity. The community also generously supports and promotes the arts. The Stamford Arts Center encompasses ballet, the symphony and drama.
