The Wall Street Journal says: "Ridgefield Promises Nice House on a Nice Street"

Ah, there's no place like home...even The Wall Street Journal thinks so. 

Ridgefield made The Wall Street Journal, appearing in the Real Estate section yesterday with this lead sentence: "The town of Ridgefield, Conn., offers residents the benefits of southern New England suburban living—as well as the more cosmopolitan features of a vibrant downtown and active cultural scene."

The article, very commendatory of Ridgefield, features pictures of Ridgefield Playhouse, Main Street, Ballard Park, and several homes. First Selectman Rudy Marconi is quoted as saying: "It's not a sleepy little town, we have a tremendous number of restaurants, some very good ones...we have a lot to offer in the arts, so I think when you balance everything out there's so much to do here."

Parks, shopping, dining and Ridgefield Schools are highlighted. "Its quaint Main Street, stretching more than a mile, is lined with shops, historic houses and more than three dozen restaurants, and draws shoppers and diners from Ridgefield as well as nearby communities," the article states.

The Wall Street Journal has a pay wall, but if you are paid subscriber, you can read the entire article here.
