For a long time, Stamford was just another city on Connecticut noted for its dead streets, meaning no pedestrians walking around. Recently I’ve been field tripping to other cities and towns in Connecticut. There’s life in then dar streets. Sadly a typical Saturday on the streets of Norwalk now resemble the ghost towns of yore.
It doesn’t help that the City’s DPW, the states DOT departments can’t figure out how to keep sidewalks unobstructed. It doesn’t help that businesses think it’s perfectly fine to pile up snow to the curb, or just not clear the sidewalks at all.
It’s not just Stamford. Even Sunday’s in Westport are filled with people walking around. Even when it’s cold. Black Rock has figured it out too. Fairfield has its streetlife too.
