I believe Stamford is a great place to live in. Stamford has many businesses open, creating many jobs for the public. Stamford also has many opportunities for the public to learn. I know that people who don't speak english well, can take English classes at a Polish school.

It has gotten worse in some areas over the years, but it has gotten much better in other areas, bringing in new people to Stamford. I think I would choose to live here again, maybe not in the same neighborhood though.
The area needs to be updated in reference to infrastructure and the police need to put more time into the community. They need to make their presence known.
