Greenwich fuses upscale culture with rural beauty. Celebrities and New York City commuters choose to live here for the appealing atmosphere that blends renowned dining and high-end shopping destinations with beaches, woodlands, and meadows. You will find plush estates and a yacht-filled harbor. But with charming neighborhoods and police officers directing traffic around the clock, Greenwich maintains a small-town feel.
Greenwich Avenue is a ritzy shopping and dining district. You will find the neighborhoods of Old Greenwich and Belle Haven dotted with Victorian and Colonial homes. The downtown area offers the Bruce Museum, but the picturesque New England neighborhoods draw more visitors with fantastic shopping and dining. Greenwich offers a unique combination of wealth, history, art, and family life.
A curious aspect of Greenwich's position in the southwestern "tail" of Connecticut is that by traveling north, south, east or west from any point in town, one will eventually reach the State of New York.
