Residents of Ridgefield’s moderate-income housing on Prospect Ridge worried 25 years ago that their children would be ostracized.
“‘I’m afraid if my son invites someone over after school, he won’t want to come and play when they see this address,’ said Sue, who is divorced and lives with her two children, ages 5 and 7, on Prospect Ridge. ‘When I lived on Florida Road I didn’t worry about that. I’m the same person. It’s just my financial situation has changed,’” reporter Lisa Wlodarski wrote in the Nov. 12, 1992, Ridgefield Press.
