Stamford, CT, Top LGBT Neighborhoods and Home Prices

Stamford Gay Neighborhoods

Stamford, Connecticut, is a part of the Bridgeport-Stamford-Norwalk metro, a large area located near the Connecticut/New York border.  In fact, it’s actually considered part of another metro area, the Greater New York Metro.  Stamford itself is home to almost 130,000 people and several Fortune 500 and Fortune 1000 companies, creating a large financial district that rivals many other large cities. 

One of the biggest draws the city offers, in addition to working for these large companies, is that it’s very safe.  In 2006, Stamford was ranked as the ninth-safest U.S. cities with populations over 100,000.  The city is also known for its large parks and its arts and cultural attractions.  One such attraction is the Stamford Museum and Nature Center, which includes a collection of sculptures by Stamford resident Gutzon Borglum, the artist who sculpted the faces on Mount Rushmore.

Many have said that Stamford doesn’t have much of a gay scene, and that is true as far as gay neighborhoods go.  You’ll still find LGBT people in the city, of course, but there’s not a huge amount of nightlife, clubs, or bars aimed at LGBT people.  That’s because Stamford is so close to NYC that most simply go there to party. 

Moving into a condo in Stamford can cost you between $115,000 and $2.2 million.  Single family homes range from $135,000 to $9 million.
