    Stamford Reviews

    Stamford, Connecticut became the first city I moved to from my home country. This particular experience, which normally seems hard for others, allowed me to become the student I am today. I owe it all to Stamford for guiding towards the right path to success and for allowing me to establish connections and relationships with great people. Stamford, with its beautiful scenery, has a diverse population with many events that people attend to. It's popularity ranges among the top in the tri-state area (CT-NY-NJ). People from other cities attend our events almost every day in the Summer. Truly an amazing city to live in.
    Review Stamford
    I love living in Connecticut. It's a very nice city to live, very safe. Anyone seeking to start fresh, this is definitely the place to come. Downtown Stamford is very busy and you can find all the restaurants, libraries, and other organizations are located. We can also find the only very popular and small mall. Honestly i am not sure about the schools because of the fact i went to school in Brooklyn. It is a place where you will find diversity and different cultures. The people are very nice friendly.Depending on how you like to live your life you can find both the city life and the peaceful, quiet country style. Although it can be a bit pricey because of the new buildings to expand the population. It is worth it.
    I loved the town of Stamford. I've been back enough to want to move and live there and I have. I've watched Stamford transform from a small mom and pop town into a City on the verge of becoming the next New York City! With the additions happening to Harbor Point and Connecticut ave, Stamford is growing into something amazing.
