Hi Karen,
Yes, the neighborhood surrounding Seaside Ave. is relatively safe. Many of the residents there do walk to Cove Island Park and other amenities in the community.

I suggest contacting Stamford's police department to inquire about if there is any crime activity and of what type to obtain that information first hand.

Here's a link to the police department's web site in Stamford that has their contact numbers:

Hope this is helpful to you!

Good evening,
06902 covers a large portion of Stamford even though we have about 10 zip codes. 06902 can range from near the downtown to Cove Island park and the Glenbrook area as well as Springdale. I realize that if you are new to the area those areas may not mean a lot by the names. Other areas, such as North Stamford(also a huge area) is more expensive because it generally has houses, more land and much more sought after for families. Based on your needs and price range, I can let you know what is available in the 06902 as well as other area codes such as 06905 etc. It's all about knowing where the great deals may be at the moment and what areas you may view as enjoyable and safe. Call me if you would like assistance in your search. (203) 621-8541. The Higgins Group real estate. Tim Vale ... more

We as Realtors cannot comment on issues concerning neighborhoods and safety by law.. Please call the Stamford Police department for any inquires regarding safety issues pertaining to the area you are speaking about. They will have the best imformation any way.

Cheryl is correct. Realtors can't make judgement calls like safe or unsafe, good or bad, etc. It would be a violation of the NAR code of ethics, and could be construed as steering.

In addition to contacting the police, I would consider knocking on the doors of prospective neighbors and ask their opinion. While you are driving around looking at neighborhoods, ask the parents of kids you see playing and you might get an opinion from someone that has similar criteria for making that judgement.

Hi Leslie -
This area of Stamford is very nice; lot's of young professionals, young families, etc. purchasing the older homes and renovating them for today’s living. Here lies the opportunity for the "hands-on" type who's not afraid of the renovation thing and has a few years to let the appreciation curve gain momentum. Easy access to down town Stamford, the parks, etc. Great starter area for the $$$.
Hope this helps – cheers.

Stamford is committed to fostering a safe, welcoming & exciting community. Springdale is a metro-area w/suburbun appeal. They have many programs and services geared towards providing youth with activities and educational opportunites. Highview Avenue is near Hope Street where several of the areas public & magnet schools are located. This year the Mayor provided additional funding to this area through the Mayor's Empowerment Grant Program.

The Springdale area has several golf & country clubs which makes this a prime location for those looking to reside in the area. Median home prices range from $470,000-$515,000. Transportation optons include Metro North. Minutes away from Downtown Stamford, which has some of the best shopping & reataurants in the state, also in close proximity are several local beaches & parks & recreation activities.

Pls let me know if you have any other questions...
