Area Info

Located approximately 30 miles from Manhattan, Stamford, CT is located in Fairfield County, Connecticut. It is the third largest city in the state and the seventh largest in New England. Stamford is home to four Fortune 500 Companies,[2] nine Fortune 1000 Companies, and 13 Courant 100 Companies, as well as numerous divisions of large corporations. This gives Stamford the largest financial district in the New York Metro area outside of New York City and one of the largest concentrations of corporations in the nation. Due to the many high-rise office towers in the area, Stamford's financial district is sometimes referred to by locals as "Little Manhattan."
