Hi everyone,

I'm looking to move into a 2 bed/2 bath apartment in Stamford. Does any one have suggestions about places to look at or avoid? We are looking to spend a little less that $2800, which is think is very doable in the area.

Any suggestions would be helpful!

Thanks

Will you be working in Stamford? If so what area? Nothing beats being able to walk/bike to work.

Yeah, I'll be at RBS right across the street from the train station.

Cool, I work right in that general area as well. (I commute in via train and walk from the train station)

There's a ton of new apartments going up just south of 95 right by the Fairway. I know it looks like a crummy area right now, but it's being redeveloped. Easy walk to RBS. To take part in the nightlife of Stamford though, you'll want to be North of 95...that's where the all the bars and restaurants are.

Having lived in one of those buildings for almost three years before moving out last October, I'd stay away. The walls are paper thin(I could hear my neighbors snoring in the apartment next door when I was in bed), construction in general is low budget and hence low quality, the rent is high for the space, it's in an iffy area compared to downtown, and the management is terrible. We're now in a building managed by RMS and are much happier, paying about the same rent for a much larger apartment which is most importantly quiet(Less amenities though.). I also don't know if I'd want to be walking home from RBS after dark to the south end right now, maybe in a few years when the area gets built up more, but there are some sketchy streets/areas back there.

There's a new apt building on Tresser and Washington just steps from RBS, though the two bedroom may be a couple of hundred above your ceiling. Also condo's across from the fabulous new Mill River Park sometimes offer rentals. Anything east of Adams street.

Check out all apartments along Washington north of Broad. Most are within 15 minute walking distance,

Your new colleagues who live in the city should be helpful.

Randy Salvatore(RMS) built many of the apartment buildings downtown. His buildings have definitely been criticized for not being "quiet".
