Stamford, definitely. You are in the NYC area so pretty much everything on your list will be better.

The only potential negatives are more expensive and somewhat colder winters.

Stamford. Being close to NYC is a lot more interesting for me than being close to DC.

I would pick Stamford on location alone (close to NYC and family in New Haven) but Richmond seems like it might be the more interesting place in isolation, although I have not been there.

Richmond is the second most underrated city (Baltimore is first) on the East Coast.

Stamford because it's close to NYC on the train.

Richmond. Not even in the same league. Only thing southern ct wins on is pizza. But the area beats everywhere on pizza, so..

I think I've racked up 10 years in ct all in, no mas. Richmond is awesome

Stamford lacks a coherent identity, it's a suburb of NYC. It doesn't really have any interesting character and besides the Long Island Sound, it doesn't have much scenery either. Richmond is its own city with a lot of history and distinct neighborhoods. Plus, Stamford is really not that close to NYC.
