I often travel between Stamford and Darien. When I do, I most often take the city streets. No matter what my starting point in either direction, I find my way to West Avenue to go back and forth.
Occasionally, just occasionally, I might be at the Volvo dealership or visiting a friend in Shippan, I'll hop on I-95. Unless, of course, it is rush hour. I-95 during rush hour may be a tribute to the success now-Gov. Dan Malloy had as Mayor Malloy in developing Stamford -- but that success has led to I-95 being a road to avoid during morning and evening rush even when it means going 10 blocks out of your way.
