About Greenwich
 
 
 

Greenwich is a community with a storied past, a celebrated present, and a bright future.
 
Founded in 1640, the town served a prominent role in colonial New England.  The route that we now call the Post Road, Putnam Avenue or US Route 1 passed through the center of Greenwich, ferrying John Adams to the First Continental Congress and George Washington during the American Revolution.  Today, the Post Road is a bustling commercial thoroughfare traveled by Greenwich residents and visitors on their way to homes and businesses in Greenwich and beyond.
 
Careful management by the town's governing bodies--the Board of Selectmen and a New England-style Representative Town Meeting--has kept taxes enviably low while maintaining the beauty of the town's spectacular Long Island Sound setting, making Greenwich an internationally sought-after address. 
 
Greenwich residents enjoy 1,000 acres of town parkland, 35 town-owned tennis courts, an 18 hole public golf course, four public beaches, 14 public marinas, a senior center, an Audubon center, an art museum, and a symphony orchestra, among other amenities too numerous to list.  The jewel of the town's parks is Greenwich Point, a 147-acre peninsula on Long Island Sound that is enjoyed by joggers, walkers, sailors, swimmers and kite-flyers alike.
 
An outstanding school system includes 11 elementary schools, three middle schools, and a high school that consistently ranks among the best in the state. Nine independent day schools add to the educational options available.
 
Greenwich lies 30 miles north of New York City and is well-served by transportation including I-95, the Merritt Parkway, and Metro-North.  Long known as the gateway to New England, Greenwich is also an easy commute by car or rail to the major employment centers of Stamford and Norwalk.
 
Sixty thousand people proudly call Greenwich home.  Greenwich has a diverse population with a strong commitment to volunteerism and community service. Residents serve the town government, local hospital, charities, and community organizations with spirit and intelligence.  They are the town's greatest asset.
