Greenwich because it’s closest. I’d live in Byraq

Ok. I’m going to bite.

I’m fairly new to Stamford, and never heard that term.

What is it ? 😁

They’re talking about Byram. We used to call it that growing up, and I’m from Riverside. Born in 92

It’s what a friend of mine who is from the Byram part of Greenwich calls Byram. Also the closest Connecticut neighborhood to Jersey City

I don’t know how much truth there is to it but Native Americans went to buy rum. That’s what I’ve always heard.

I looked this up and you’re pretty much right. The area is named after the river, but the river was changed from the Armonck River to the Byram River because Native American fur traders would approach merchants on the river with the phrase “buy rum”. Source: the county archives, according to this article

I’m in Stamford and have turned down a few jobs in jersey- no thanks. From here if you fully avoid rush hour jersey city is around 1h 15min. But in rush hour likely closer to 2h

Agreed, I wouldn't go any further south than White Planes.

Places closer to nyc. So Stamford, Greenwich, Norwalk, Darien

Driving to JC everyday? Honestly none… but yeah maybe Greenwich as it’s technically closest.

Any town where you can afford a helicopter to commute each day

Sounds like a Greenwich comment. Don’t bash me. Just making fun of this faux reality.

I drove to high school with kids who had 50$k cars. I grew up in communist Poland

do not do this. In the middle of the night when there is no construction, it's almost a defensible commute, even with the tolls. But during the day? no fucking way.

I moved from JC and have done the Stamford JC drive a couple of times. It’s awful.

My guess would be the closer the better which may depend on your budget.


loeborg t1_j5ys2uu wrote

Where have I been. Never heard this. It’s fantastic for us Byram folks


loeborg t1_j5z54rf wrote

I’m not sure I understand. I’m not being argumentative at all. Explain, please

Bridgeport would be the safest bet.
