Greenwich is often referred to as the “Gateway to New England,” and is strategically located just 25 miles to New York City and the express trains make the Manhattan commute less than an hour. Greenwich is bordered by the flourishing City of Stamford on the east, New York’s Westchester County on the west and the waters of Long Island Sound on the south. Ultimately, it is the people who live here that make Greenwich so interesting and desirable. While widely known for its many wealthy residents such as business executives, international entrepreneurs, hedge fund managers, artists, writers, diplomats, actors and sports figures, Greenwich is a well diverse community and a wonderful place to live.
Money Magazine ranked Greenwich as #1 on its list of the best places to live in the United States and Connecticut Magazine ranked Greenwich top in education and #1 in economy. Greenwich has picturesque parks, fabulous shops, beautiful beaches, award winning restaurants, a fantastic library, and an ultra-modern hospital. Greenwich is continuously rated as Connecticut's number one place to live.
Greenwich has 67 square miles of land, which includes 20 parks, 4 beaches, 8,000 acres of protected land and The Griffith E. Harris municipal golf course. Residential areas primarily have one, two and four acre zoning to maintain attractive country terrain, picturesque brooks, lakes and ponds.
