Norwalk Apartments Near the Wonders of Fall

It happens every year near your Norwalk apartments. The weather turns a little cooler, shorts and sandals are replaced by shoes and sweaters and my two boys announce it’s time to go apple picking. It’s really fun to take advantage of the cooler weather to spend the day outside at a local farm or farm stand, pick way too many apples or peaches and maybe take a hayride or get your picture taken with a real scarecrow.

Residents of our Morningside Gardens apartments in Norwalk have a number of farm stands and pick-your-own farms to choose from. One of the local places you may not have tried yet is Warrup’s Farm in Redding. It’s a small, family-owned farm operated by the Hill Family and they specialize in homegrown organic farming. Everything they grow is certified organic by Stellar Certification Services, assuring us and them that their soil is in optimal health, able to support plant life without the use of herbicides of pesticides.

Feast of San Gennaro

Easy Access to Feast of San Gennaro from Stamford Apartments

Fall has arrived (yeah!) and this season promises to be chock-full of things to do and places to go near your Stamford apartment rentals. County Fairs, apple picking, new museum exhibits and plays opening at local theatres are just a few examples of some of the offerings residents of Downtown Stamford have to choose from. But one of the best regional events every September has to be the Feast of San Gennaro.  2011 marks the 85th year of this Feast; New York City’s longest-running, biggest and most revered outdoor festival in the United States. It started Thursday, Sept. 15, and runs through this Sunday, Sept. 25 on the streets of historic Little Italy.

More than one million people from the four corners of the globe are expected to participate in the annual Salute to the Patron Saint of Naples. Although this is an annual celebration of faith, the Feast of San Gennaro is known the world over for its festive atmosphere, an 11-day event featuring religious processions and colorful parades, free musical entertainment every day, a wide variety of ethnic food delicacies, charming restaurants and cafes and even a world-famous cannoli-eating competition!

Hamden apartment rentals at Seramonte

Tips to Help You Move Easily Into Your Hamden Apartments

No matter how much time you allow, moving into your new Hamden apartment rentals can be an overwhelming task. Since it is hard to keep track of everything you need to pack and do, a great way to do it is to prepare a checklist to use as a guide. It is important to calculate the cost of your move and set up a budget in the early stages of preparation.

The first step is to set up a “moving file” or notebook where you will keep all of the information pertaining to the move in one place. If you plan to make a short-distance move, you may consider doing the move yourself (or with the help of family and friends). If you plan to make a long-distance move, there are several factors to consider such as whether you can do it yourself, or whether you need to hire a moving service. You will also need to plan for either driving or shipping your auto to your new destination. Read More→

Celebrate Stamford

Here’s a great way to close out the summer with one last fabulous event near your Stamford apartment rentals! Stamford’s Mayor, Michael Pavia has announced that a fireworks display will be scheduled for today at Kosciuszko Park. The “Celebrate Stamford” event will also include local musical and dance acts.

“I’m incredibly excited to bring fireworks back to Stamford and to showcase the new development at Harbor Point,” Pavia stated in a press release. “This event came together incredibly quickly and it shows that when the City of Stamford gets behind something, we can produce tremendous results quickly. Private business, the city and both the police and fire departments all had to work together to make this wonderful event possible.”

Located at Elmcroft Road and Dyke Lane on the shores of Stamford Harbor, Kosciuszko Park is just about 1 mile south of our downtown Stamford apartments; just a few minutes’ drive for our residents who live in Morgan manor, Hoyt-Bedford and the Townhouse Apartments. The park is a 7-acre waterfront peninsula that contains a wide walkway around the perimeter which encircles ball fields and a children’s playground. The site has plenty of parking and –bonus!- does not require a fee or park sticker so you can invite all your friends to join you!
