Greenwich is a town that started it all. Founded in the 1700's, as a retreat for the leaders of the world, to get away from all the congested, hectic life of the growing city of Manhattan and Boston. Leaders kept their prized white horses, in stables built of Gold. Today it has transformed into a suburb known for the best. Home to the Rockefellers,Tycons, Kennedys, Penskes,Hillfieger, and all the top Ceo's of either Ge down to Wyeth, Greenwich has got it. A place where polo really started, always haveing the best, to the top of the line schools trainers, and transit system. Crusing down the streets of Greenwich is like reading Town & Country,AD, and the dupont registrey, all at once. The Nannys drive Range Rovers, the mothers are usually driven by an attractive drivers either in a Bentley(but the real must have these days are the Maybachs), but the best is passing the gates upon gates, each Mansion different from the rest and all have been featured in trendy home magazines. The kids have usually seen the whole world by 6 and by 14 are sent off to the best boarding schools in the world. Every Greenwich Child must have the following.
1.)Private Tutors till the age of 8
2.)Several Horses, one is never enogh
3.)Trainers in Polo, Crew, Squash, Tennis, Golf
4.)Daily Shrink(its a must have)
5.)(Age 5), 1 Range Rover Power Wheels,a custum play house with kitchen powder room, air condtion,a garage for the Range, and a meditation room, with sauna and garden.
6.)(Age 16) 1 Range Rover,& 1 aston martin, custum designer, atleast twice a month fly to somewhere warm to keep the tan,private fitness trainers, and one JAP(jewish American Princes)friend. But ones GREENY, 16th party must be above $100,000 if not, then u should just shop at sears.
7.) If you dont pop ur collar then u should just simply be shot by ones bodyguard.
The simple rules must be followed if not, then simply move to Hartford.

in greenwich everyone has at least a mercedes, many have bentleys or rolls-royces. the average house if $10 million, and everyone goes on trips everywhere all the time. if you dont have a second house, or something that you dont need over 800 grand, like a bugatti or plane you are poor.
hey man my helicopters in the shop so i cant take it to my private jet, can we use one of your helicopters to take from your private helipad to the airport, or should i just take my shitty aston martin, i mean its already 7 months old!

There's a lot of stereotypes on here about this town. It's hard to tell if they're being tongue-in-cheek or what. But lemme tell you, not everyone from the greenwich area is rich and overprivileged. Cos Cob, Byram, Riverside, etc. aren't exactly super fancy. Don't get me wrong, they are good areas, but not everyone in greenwich grew up in mansions. I've worked since I was 15, and that was the way it was if I wanted anything of my own, like a car or $$ to hang out. I didnt go to private school or an Ivy league college. Hell, there's even projects in Byram. Are they as scary as ones in big cities? No, of course not, but it goes to show, there are parts of this town that aren't yacht clubs and shopping boutiques. It makes me mad when i tell people where i grew up and they assume i'm a trust-fund kid. My parents immigrated to the USA and ended up in Cos Cob by chance. They didn't come from $$ they just lucked out on a cheap living situation. I moved out years ago and live in a neighborhood with normal, working class people, thank god. Snobbery does exist in a lot of greenwich, but not EVERYONE is a popped-collar, yacht-clubbing blueblood. I also haven't lived there in almost 20 years, so things were a little different when I grew up.
Greenwich is somewhere I would never, ever raise a kid, live or even hang out in, ever.

I have read many definitions of Greenwich, CT, but none seem to be accurate. Yes, there are a couple people who wear polos all the time, but for the most part, people wear whatever they want. True, we do have our "greenwich slang" but we don't use it all the time like some of the examples in other peoples definitions. Greenwich is a small town in CT and is comfortably close to New York City. If someone wanted to go to NY they could just take the train that is located at the bottom of Greenwich Ave. The best spot to hang out in in Greenwich is Greenwich Avenue, also called "the ave". Over all, sure Greenwich does have some snobs, but honestly, what town doesn't? Greenwich is a great place to live and I'm very happy to have that privilege. Greenwich is an amazing place to live, and it really does have the best parties!
Kate: Hey, Ana, wanna go to Greenwich ave later?

Ana: I'd love to Kate!

Kate: Kay, let's call the others and we can all hang out!

rich town in fairfield county. I myself live in Greenwich, Ct. i have seen the kids abusing drugs. Yes there are many preppy toolish kids but a vast majority of the residents in Greenwich are normal and down to earth. The people here are wealthier than most but thats not the case for everyone.
kids here use words such as, (freedman), (mad), (chill), (danksauce), (get nice), (biddy).
Freedman: I LIKE IT UP THE BUTT, give me cock please
Crowd: you go do yo thang freedman of greenwich

A town in Connecticut in which every body has mad money. there is swilling weekly at the amazing house parties in back country mansions. The cheapest houses are in the high hundred thousands. The most expensive are in back country or bell haven, the homes are about thirty million. Greenwich has more money than the other wealthy Connecticut towns such as Darien or New Cannan. The kids how ever aren't snobs at all, they just tend to flaunt they are from Greenwich. They don't need to say where they are from for people to know they are rich. on lookers can tell by the polo shirts, LV bags, and many more over priced... but must have items. Greenwich is tooo hottt to handle, but its where EVERYONE wants to live. I mean millionaire kids think they are poor if they dont live in back country..... GOTTA LOVE IT
a poor girls nightmare, an average girls dream, a rich girls domain..... greenwich

greenwich, CT is one of the wealthiest towns in the United States, but as a person who lives in greenwich, most of these definitions are skewed and presumptuous. I don't sail, play lacrosse, wear polo's or lacoste. I am not white,and although I am the minority there is a lot of us in Greenwich, at least 90+ Argentine families, which is where i am from. There definately is the preppy group but to tell you the truth it isnt the majority of the people. While there is a lot of drug addicts and drunks in greenwich the amount of people who smoke between classes (in a school of 3,000 kids) is less than 50, and i personally have never smoked. I just wanted to give people a different view from all the ones that i have been reading which are mainly assumptions and stereotypes. The descriptions other people wrote are true in some ways but still, to a much lesser extent.
Greenwich is a town people assume is soemthing it really isnt

Greenwich, Connecticut is one of the wealthiest towns in America. A large portion of the people there are white and a vast majority have too much money. There's a serious drug culture resulting from bored teenagers having excess cash and a sufficient parent population which works too often to keep a close eye on things. Hopefully, though, you readers know that most of what's posted on here is exaggerated. It's true that plenty of people have abominably large houses, fancy cars, and employees to help around the house, but no one that I knew in the 17 years I lived there ate anything dipped in edible gold, and no one had a helicopter, though one girl in my grade's dad used his company helicopter regularly. The point of this is that yes, the town is absurd and the people there often have no concept of reality, the value of a dollar, or what life is like outside of Greenwich, the posh parts of New York and their beautiful, luxurious vacation destinations, it's not completely like that. I hated growing up there, because most people were lacking in original thought, style, etc but there are some really cool people, so if you ever come across someone from Greenwich, don't write them off immediately. Plenty of people worked really hard to be able to live there so their kids could go to Greenwich High School, since it's a pretty good school.
The town of Greenwich is infamous for its insane concentration of wealth, causing its entire population to get a bad reputation, though 5-10% of its inhabitants are decent.
