This is the web site of the Glenbrook Neighborhood Association. Our association represents the interests of the residents of Glenbrook. Overall, our objectives relate to beautification and improvement of our streets and public areas.
Our guest speaker Jim Cameron is a commuter advocate whose column "Getting There" appears Mondays on the front page of the Stamford Advocate. He will talk about the State’s transportation budget cuts that will greatly affect the New Canaan Branch line’s off-peak and weekend service, beginning July 1.
GNA was pleased with the results of Fairfield County’s Giving Day on March 1. Donations to GNA totaling $510 will help us purchase mulch and plant material to spruce up our Liberty Garden. In 2002 the Glenbrook Neighborhood Association received a grant from Keep America Beautiful to create a Liberty Garden commemorating September 11, 2001 and the loss of a friend. GNA transformed a traffic island at the Glenbrook Train Station parking lot, adding a flag, trees and plants, a brick path, a bench, and a plaque in memory of Sean Rooney. In 2009 a plaque was added in memory of his wife Beverly Eckert. This spring GNA will give the neglected Liberty Garden the attention it deserves, thanks to Giving Day donations and the efforts of our volunteers. Check Facebook for progress reports.
Photos and meeting minutes can be found here.
A historical and architectural overview of Glenbrook can be found on the StamfordHistoricStructures.com website, an offshoot of Historic Neighborhood Preservation. The overview was written in 2017 by project historian Rachel D. Carley as part of Glenbrook’s Historical and Architectural Resources Inventory of over 150 structures, most of them residences. The survey sheets will be added in the future, but the overview can be accessed now at https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwkN1i7qKbRtZWdnRzdNcU1mRVk/view, pages 9-24. The houses surveyed are listed on pages 32-37.
