Neighborhood of Shippan Point in Stamford CT 06902

Why Do People Live Here?

The community of Shippan is a wonderful waterfront community of apartments, condominiums and single family homes that sit conveniently just South of downtown Stamford.  Through the tree lined streets it's not uncommon to see families walking and children playing during the summer or sledding down the hills of the community's park which frames the entrance to Shippan Point in the winter.  Shippan Point Kimberly Tapscott Realtor

It's an oasis from the hustle and bustle of downtown, yet only minutes away from Interstate 95 and the Stamford Train Station where the Metro-North Line can get you to New York's Grand Central Station on an express train in 45 minutes.
