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.
