Define safe. Do you pass through some neighborhoods known for higher crime? Yes. Will anything happen to you in broad daylight with busy traffic? Highly unlikely. There's really nothing to see on that route though. You're mostly walking through the least attractive areas of both cities.

What is the outlook for the beaches up there?

In Stamford there are some rumors that the beaches might not be open for the summer season, due to lack of funding to fully rehabilitate them. Within the last few weeks I have been to the beaches in Cove Island and Cummings Park, and both were a mess. Plenty of sand on the parking lots (especially at Cummings Park), benches and pathways completely destroyed or shifted; just a mess.

The sea was much rougher in the Milford-New Haven stretch (and beyond), so I can only imagine what the situation must be like up there, but I'm curious if the same rumors circulating in Stamford are also present further up the coast.

Stamford actually had a worse surge than the Milford area. The beaches don't look THAT bad right now. The boardwalk at Silver Sands took a big hit, but is estimated to be repaired and reopened this Spring. Honestly the beaches seemed to be worse after Irene. Since they were open the summer after Irene, I don't see why that won't happen this year.
