There is Brewer's in Mamaroneck, and the town also maintains a float. Likewise, there's Nichols Yacht Yard and McMichael's Rushmore Yard. Your options depend on the size of your boat. I mention Mamaroneck because it's only 10 miles or so west of Stamford, it's walking distance to the same train line that Stamford is on, and you can provision quite easily. There are several supermarkets that are either longish walks or very short cab rides from the harbor (and if the timing is right I'd be willing to give you a ride, but I'm actually swamped at work at the moment, so that might be a little hard to work the logistics, if you lack flexibility). There's also a host of restaurants, marine supply, and similar stuff. The knock on Mamaroneck as a destination is that there aren't that many places to stay as a transient, but this time of year you shouldn't have a problem finding a spot.
Port Washington (Manhassett) as Caleb mentioned also would be an excellent choice for provisioning and easy access, and there are far more options for transient space, not to mention that the harbor itself is a great anchorage. The trick there might be your crew exchange. The train line is the Long Island Railroad, as opposed to Metro North. So, if your crew is coming from Long Island or NYC, then it's great. If from Westchester, Connecticut and/or points farther east, then not so much.
