Guess what, dear readers. It appears that my post from 2009 has finally paid off!
Not only will our beautiful 1916 post office survive, but it will now mail food directly into my tummy! The new plan is for this landmark building on Atlantic Street to house a Chelsea Market-style food hall. If all goes as planned, we will finally have a cheese shop here in Stamford!!! As much as I enjoy flying to Paris every few weeks to purchase fresh fromage (I live in Fairfield County, so I just assume I'm wealthy enough to do that), it'll be much more convenient to be able to buy it right here in town.
Since my wish for a cheese shop has come true, I think my next post will be about turning the vacant UBS building into America's largest bierhall. Prost!!
