We maybe relocating soon to Stamford and are looking for diverse neighborhoods to raise our kids, ages 10 and 12. I am from Wash,DC he is from Philly and grew up in multiracial neighborhoods. Currently we live in an upper class majority white neighborhood. We are both black. Can anyone suggest an area that has multiracial people at a upper middle class income level.

Most any neighborhood in Stamford would be welcoming towards your family. I live in the Bulls Head area--right in the heart of Stamford, and our neighborhood is tremendously diverse. I like to tell everyone that our cul-de-sac alone has an Indian family, a multi-racial family, Hispanic family, 2 gay families (us included), an Asian family, and French family.
I would focus on neighborhoods inside the city, and you'll find diversity is most everywhere.

Stamford is a very diverse place. The majority of the population may be white, but don't be fooled by that. There are notable pockets of well-educated blacks, Latinos, Asians, etc. in this city. I dont' know Stamford's neighborhoods well (I'm in Hartford county, which is also getting diverse in some towns) but you shouldn't have a hard time finding a nieghborhood in this city that's safe, upper-middle-class, and tolerant. Good luck to you if in fact you can afford it - because it's getting REALLY expensive.

I have lived here for 8 years and love my city for its diversity. I really can't think if any neighorhoods NOT diverse. My favorite area of Stamford would be Westover..mostly for its close proximity to everything. A great mix of new builds and older homes.
