Hi Amanda,

We have an home in Ridgefield and love the town. We knew from the moment we drove down Main Street that this was where we wanted to live. We looked at New York but refused to pay that level of real estate taxes.

If you wish to contact me with your needs and criteria, I will be happy to assist you in the search.

Yes, there is metered parking at the Greenwich train stations and it is still available at 7:00 . You can also apply for a parking pass. Some stations have a wait list, but no all of them.

Hope this helps

If you go out of the Katonah,NY or Cross River,NY stations it is approx.1 hr to Grand Central Station. We have a station in Ridgefield but it takes 1 hr and 35 minutes on that train. There is a shuttle bus that runs between Ridgefield and Katonah,NY. That trip takes approx 20 minutes. ... more

Hi Theda,
I used to commute on Merritt Parkway for many years. It was much shorter distance from Westport, CT to White Plains/Purchase NY. It took me 30 min with no traffic and up to 2 hrs with a heavy traffic (at least once a month). From Westport to Newtown you have at least another 30 min. The traffic is very heavy between Bridgeport/Fairfield all the way to Stamford starting 7-7:30 AM at the latest. The reverse commute is very heavy starting at 5 PM. As a matter of fact, at least it is what I remember, the reverse commute is much more unpredictable and prone to delays. The solution? Drive to work early in the morning (leaving Newtown at 6 AM at the latest) and coming back late (after 6:30 PM or later). Possibly it changed, but from what I hear from my friends in the area - not much. ... more
