Stamford parking near Metro North Station for large vehicle

I have a SUV with a roof box that does not fit in many parking garages. I am planning to head into NYC from Stamford station on Metro North. Are there any surface parking lots near Stamford station with no roofs that are available on a daily basis?

Don't you think the folks in Stamford would have more information than those in NYC?

There are other stations like Stratford where there are no garages - it's all open.

I don't know of anything in Stamford that isn't a garage.

Stamford, Bridgeport, and New Haven are garages. Stratford is wide open space.

Darien and Noroton Heights are also open space but I don't know if they allow non-resident parking.

A better forum would be, as retired agent inferred---a Stamford Forum,

This page gives you the name of the parking lot operator and their phone number.

Fairfield Metro Station has a massive 1,500-space open lot; not sure what the parking cost is, but these web pages might help:

However, this is a bit of a distance from Stamford on I-95, and going in the opposite direction from NYC. Noroton Heights is the closest main line station to Stamford with an open parking lot: The lot is operated by the town of Darien, and a parking permit might be required unless there are some metered spaces.
