Moving to Stamford, CT? Welcome to the City that Works.

Stamford, Connecticut’s population currently exceeds 120,000, but the city is considered a part of the New York City Megalopolis. Many of the residents here actually commute to downtown New York City for work.  Because it’s only 25 miles away, and the travel time is less than an hour during moderate traffic (and 45 minutes on a non-stop train), New York is also doable as a nightlife destination or for weekend site-seeing. Despite a recent trend of New Yorkers reverse-commuting to work in Stamford, the city is known more so as being a bedroom community.  Still, if you are moving to Stamford in search of work, you may be able to capture one of the 70,000 jobs that have played their part in making Stamford “The City That Works!”   

Moving to Stamford, CT—What You Should Know

  • Climate. Being only 25 miles from “The Big Apple,” Stamford enjoys the same weather patterns as New York City.  A good mix of sunshine, rainy days, and snowfall is what can be expected by those moving to the area from other regions of the country.
  • Transportation. Stamford is connected to the best mass transit system in the United States via Amtrak commuter trains into New York.  That said, the city operates a stellar bus system, and offers various student transportation, taxicabs, express shuttles throughout Connecticut, and limousine services.
  • Education. Stamford rivals Iowa City for the US metropolitan area with the highest percentage of the adult population holding a bachelor's degree or higher; 44 percent of residents in Stamford hold a degree!
  • Recreation. Moving to Stamford doesn’t mean you are moving away from world-class arts and entertainment.  New York is so close!  Also, if you can’t realistically make the trip to Times Square on a dime, there is always something interesting happening right in downtown Stamford. 
  • Shopping. Speaking of downtown, it is riddled with interesting and eclectic shops that are fueled by the local business and vicinity to the commuter train station!  Check out the local malls as well!
  • Food. Moving to Stamford with a foodie in the family?  Try Capital Grille!  They claim you will be wined, dined, and dazzled by their unmatched steaks and perfectly matching atmosphere.
