I just bought a house in Hubbard Heights (Rachelle Ave) with my fiance. We are a young couple in our 20s that had been looking for a safe and enjoyable neighborhood. Our new neighbors have been very friendly and welcoming. Everyone has gone out of their way to stop by and say hello and introduce themselves. I even had one neighbor help me lift something in my yard (when he saw that I accidentally knocked it over and was struggling with it), and then he invited my fiance and I to a BBQ that he and his wife were hosting later that week! Needless to say, we are very pleased with this neighborhood.

I live in Hubbard Heights (St George Ave) and it's a very nice neighborhood. Lot's of younger families moving in and you can always see neighbors walking their dogs and strollers down the side walks. Everyone is really friendly. The neighborhood association ($10/yr donation) is awesome and they have annual get togethers.

Hubbard Heights is an older neighborhood that, 50+ years ago was an area that attracted medical personnel from nearby Stamford Hospital. There is a nice Hubbard Heights neighborhood association, and I believe it still may have its annual picnic in the summer. Many of the homes are older, large homes, with colonial, tudor, and ranch style, among others. To the West lies the City's E. Gaynor Brennan golf course, one of two city-owned golf courses. To the South is the hospital. Within the community is a parochial school and convent. The streets flanking the neighborhood on the North and South are through streets, and busy much of the time, so getting in and out is easy. To the East is Scalzi Park, with lighted tennis and basketball courts, and Cubeta Stadium, abutting Hubbard Heights. The community is on Stamford's West Side, just a few blocks from elementary and middle schools, and the downtown.

This is a fine area, with some respected history. Property appreciation can be expected to be reasonably good, providing the older homes are well maintained. As with anywhere else, a 75 year old home, neglected for years, may be expected to become a money pit. Choose wisely.

Absolutely safe and convenient. A pretty neighborhood or nice sized beautiful houses and tree lined streets that drop you quickly and easily into downtown - shopping, supermarkets, etc. There are areas that border hubbard heights but there is not much danger. My grandmother has lived on hubbard avenue for 60 years and never had a problem.
