Crime & Safety
After 30 years I cannot say enough about the beauty of the town we call home.Greenwich certainly IS a very diverse town with hardworking families and those who spend many hours quietly volunteering for the elderly and for United Way for children and families in town. There are others who spend hours or adult lifetimes giving back generously of their time and finances quietly helping others. This is never mentioned in articles written by those who not only don't live here but wish they did.The medical/healthcare community is a huge asset.Parks are numerous including Tod'sPt beach which has stunning views from any point on the peninsula.Wonderful public schools, town sports,annual town party,the 2nd most visited library in New England The shops in town are lovely,a number still owned by local families.Delicious restaurants in all sections of the town .Overall a very kind, well diversified, beautiful wonderful place with so many interesting residents,to raise a family!
Greenwich is a beautiful, upscale town on Connecticut's southwest shoreline. The public schools are excellent and in addition there are numerous private school options. Greenwich Library is a town treasure and provides an art-lending library, an extensive music collection and monthly entertainment in its Cole Auditorium. It is a family friendly place with access to Todd's Point Beach, beautiful parks and playgrounds, and a lovely Audobon with hiking trails for those who enjoy the outdoors. Restaurants abound, from the less expensive typical fast food chains, to upscale eateries with elegant, five-star dining. While the cost of living is high in Fairfield Country compared to other parts of the country, the quality of life is superb. Not to be missed is Greenwich Avenue, with excellent shopping and dining. While parking here may be a challenge, the experience will be well worth. All in all, a wonderful place to live!
There is definitely a lot of variety of stores and restaurants in this area. However, all of them are "Top-notch" and expensive. On Greenwich Avenue you will find Lacoste, Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors, Saks Fifth Avenue, and many more expensive stores! The restaurants also serve very great food, but again they are very pricy and elegant. On Greenwich Ave you can basically go shopping and find everything you want (at a very high cost and high quality), and enjoy lunch or dinner on that same street. I have noticed that most families go to Greenwich Ave to shop and eat every Sunday.
