Currently live in Brooklyn but got a job in Stamford and looking to relocate ASAP as my commute sucks. See a lot of I bankers and Finance professionals living in the luxury apartments here, but there's a few lower tier apartments that are decent but much cheaper ($400 or so per month...more when counting all the fees paid at these luxury apartments).
Planning on going for my MBA next year but my weakest point is networking. Was wondering, are these luxury buildings good spots to network with other professionals, maybe a prelude to the Ft MBA experience? I don't know if the amenities alone are worth the cost of admission and the 'status' is a ridiculous reason.....but an intangible like networking especially with other professionals who have gone down a similar path I'll be taking next year would be more than worth the uptick in rent (not to mention being closer to work and all the benefits of a newer luxury building).
Figured WSO would be a good place to see if I am on the right track with this assumption or completely wrong.
If anyone lives in Stamford def could use your take and specific complexes (looking at the new Vela , TGM Anchor Point and The Key in Harbor Point right now).
