Riverside Reviews

Many people have lived in Greenwich for their entire lives. These families have a good sense of community and are very involved. There are some families that come in from abroad and stay for only a few years but they are in the minority. There are many other families that moved here and have settled in. We are close to NYC so it is an easy train ride for commuters and those who want to attend shows or professional sporting events (although I wouldn't call NYC local, it is easy to get to).

Greenwich is a relatively safe community. It is, for the most part, safe for kids to have independence around town. The most common type of crime we see is car vandalism and break ins and sometimes a home break in. The police are responsive but many of them are not from town and sometimes have chips on their shoulders.
This city is very calm and safety. Many people always kind and generous. The weather is also nice and has a beautiful building.
