Retro Streets of Stamford posts!

Since this snow has all of us stuck inside, let's fire up the flux capacitor, hit 88 miles per hour, and go back in time! I've managed to scrape together most of my early posts from the now-defunct Mr. Stamford blog and re-created them on my current one with their original posting dates. I've even included screen-caps of the original comments for your perusing pleasure. Enjoy!

March 8, 2008: Puttin' up the Ritz, where I wrote about the exciting development about to be built at the corner of Tresser Boulevard and Atlantic Street. (Current status: a nice flat patch of dirt.)

March 27, 2008: Boycott Pitney Bowes!, where I wrote about how Pitney Bowes killed Stamford's plan for a baseball stadium or concert/sports arena.

May 14, 2008: R.I.P. Stamford Whole Foods/The South (End) shall rise again, where I wrote about the death of our dream of having our very own Whole Foods, and the beginning of Harbor Point's rise from the ashes of Canal Street.

May 23, 2008: The most exclusive neighborhood in Stamford, where I wrote about Wallack's Point and Caritas Island.

June 26, 2008: More cherry tree nonsense, where I wrote about how some people were losing their minds about the city's plan to cut down the old, dying cherry trees in Mill River Park.

July 20, 2008: Downtown Stamford is dead, where I list all of the empty lots and storefronts in downtown Stamford. (Update: They're all still empty. WTF??)

I just purchased the domain from the previous owner. Although, I don't have access to any of the old content. But glad to see you could find it!
