    Sherman is the northernmost and least populous town of Fairfield County, certainly not southwestern. Also, Realtor.com / the MLS shows this at $20k a month rental, not $35k, though I question that number as well.

    Regardless of how much it costs, isn’t this the 4th or 5th piece in a row to talk about wealth distribution? I get it, we live in an area that has money…everyone gets it, we all live here…longer than you have.

    There is a clear “trend” in this new “trending” piece. Let’s talk every week about who has money and where they live, how they live and what they do. I know the author loves Twitter and scraped the “trending” name from there, but truthfully does anyone find relevance here? I am so disappointed…next week it will be the homes of who has a Ferrari, just wait and see.

    boy, slow news day if this is the headline????
    It’s most likely a typo. Has anyone ever rented it for that much in the past?

    As a reporter, do you bother to do any research… I mean WTF?

    Sherman, CT is NOT in Southwestern CT. Ridiculous to even think that’s the case.

    Did anyone check to see if an extra zero was added in error by the Realtor posting the listing? $3,500 seems more like it for a 3000 square feet house that is dated and located in Sherman.

    Come on Maggie. First you get your panties in a bunch over the CBS ranking of Stamford – which clearly refers to the metropolitan statistical area and not the city of Stamford. Now you claim that Sherman is in Southwestern CT?! It might be in Fairfield County, but it’s closer to the Mass border than it is to Stamford. Any town that actually sits north of Waterbury when you draw a line from west to east should NOT be reported as being in Southwestern CT!
