Greenwich in Fairfield county, Connecticut

Greenwich

Greenwich, famous for its affluence, presents a luxurious world of elegant seaside living, shopping and diverse recreation.

A New England gateway, bordering New York's Westchester County, it is a prime location for convenient travel by rail or highway to major metropolitan centers.

The village of Old Greenwich was called "Sound Beach" in the last century, and the main road through the small downtown business section is Sound Beach Avenue. This street serves as a popular hangout for children and teenagers as well as hosting annual street fairs and events. Fortunately, much of Old Greenwich retains its "vintage" charm. Old Greenwich resists the fate of being just another "suburb of New York City". It has several distinct sections each with its own mailing address and ZIP code, such as Byram, Cos Cob, Glenville, Mianus, and Riverside and Greenwich proper (downtown Greenwich).

The rambling estates and vast manors of historic Cos Cob, Old Greenwich and Riverside dot the coastline. The rolling hills and manicured properties of Banksville and Round Hill offer exceptional properties in a range of styles and sizes, from large country houses to streamlined contemporaries and condominiums while smaller cottages and charming condominiums grace the coast. Inland, the architecture and landscape are equally desirable. Blending seamlessly with the city's residential community are the corporate offices of hedge funds, businesses and respected industrial firms.

Many independent and parochial schools compliment the town's high-achieving, well-funded public school system and Adult and Continuing Education.

The town has an abundance of leisure and cultural activities. Located in town are four public and numerous private beaches on Long Island Sound, swim clubs, two inland lakes plus municipal and private marinas. There are numerous public parks and trails for hiking, picnicking, rollerblading, bicycling and horse-back riding. There are five country clubs with golf courses and the town owns the 18-hole Griffith E. Harris golf course. Babcock Preserve is a popular 297 acre park that offers a variety of activities including up and down trail walking, running, hiking, and cross country skiing.

Factors in this measure are income, educational achievement and occupation of persons within a ZIP code. Because this measure is based on the population of an entire ZIP code, it may not reflect the nature of an individual school.
