DOWNTIME

Greenwich is rich in history and offers unique and diverse cultural activities. There are over 50 outstanding restaurants, exceptional shopping, four libraries, a world-class museum, and many opportunities for recreation and leisure sports on the glorious waterfront or on backcountry trails.


Greenwich, Connecticut, founded in 1640 and conveniently located only 28 miles from midtown Manhattan, is known as the Gateway to New England. Bordered by Stamford to the East, New York’s Westchester County to the West, and 32 miles of Long Island Sound shoreline to the South, Greenwich is geographically blessed with 48 square miles of countryside. There are seven villages and hamlets, each with its own distinct identity, geography, and roots that predate the Revolutionary War.

With a reputation as one of the best places in the United States to raise a family, Greenwich has been rated as Connecticut’s No. 1 community for education and public safety - and as the best community in the state for quality of life. Both public and private schools are recognized for outstanding educational achievement. Greenwich offers an exceptional blend of neighborhoods, shopping areas, dining, and open space. Greenwich Avenue, the main shopping area, has often been compared to Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills and Worth Avenue in Palm Beach, as a mecca for window-shoppers, with outstanding dining spots and high-end retailers. 

Recreational opportunities abound with 1500 acres of parkland, two sandy beaches – 147 acre Greenwich Point and Byram Beach: two islands on Long Island Sound accessed by Town ferries; boating, fishing, tennis, picnic and playground facilities; and miles of nature trails Including the Audubon Center and the Greenwich Garden Education Center. Numerous other green spaces embrace rolling hills, backcountry woodlands and meadows, and abundant lakes and streams. In addition to an 18-hole public golf course, there are four private yacht clubs, eight golf clubs and a tennis and squash racquet club. Opportunities for year-round recreation include the YMCA and YWCA, the Boys & Girls Club, and the Arch Street Teen Center.  

Greenwich is home to artists, celebrities, sports personalities, corporate executives and leaders in the world of finance, especially hedge fund managers, earning Greenwich the sobriquet of Wall Street East. Many executives have moved their headquarters from Wall Street, finding it easy to conduct business in Greenwich, enjoy a more casual lifestyle, and spend more time with their families. Long considered a bedroom community of New York, twice as many people commute into Greenwich to work than the reverse.  

Greenwich offers a unique mix of small New England town ambience with a metropolitan sophistication, office parks and attractive shopping areas with backcountry rural settings and some of Long Island Sound's most beautiful shorelines.
