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.

The simple rules must be followed if not, then simply move to Hartford.

Here, in the richest town in the U.S., everyone owns houses bigger than most apartment complexes and drive cars that are more expensive than houses in "the rest" of America. 99% of the town is white, and all the girls wear lacoste and ralph lauren polos and oxfords (collars popped -- that's a given), j. crew classics, "real" juicy couture, and accessorize with prada. Knockoffs? What are those?! After lacrosse or field hockey practice, they all top off their polka-dot hair ribbons with eliza b. or rainbow flip flops. Don't even think about wearing just red or blue, it's all "nantucket red" and "lagoon" or "ocean spray".
Now onto the boys they date:
All wear seersucker or madras shorts/pants, and have long, stylishly unkempt hair. They all sail and play lacrosse, and are exceptional at both, when they aren't stoned or drunk. Their families attend yacht club parties every saturday night, where all the men have names like "tyler" and preppy little nicknames.
For fun in Greenwich, girls shop 'til they drop on "the Ave", where the most popular stores include "Rags" and "Wishlist", where you can pay $70 for a faded shirt that has been "professionally aged" so that the buyer can pretend to be ghetto and poor. And "ghetto" is a word used often in Greenwich. Preppy kids dressed to impress often say things like, "woah, man, your BMW is sooo mad ghetto". For the cash it takes to buy the sportscars that are cruising around Greenwich, you could buy and refurbish a ghetto.
Bottom line: Greenwich is preppy to the max, a prime example of a community so sheltered that most of the people there have an incredibly skewed perspective of wealth.

A very rich town in Connecticut where even the seven black people that live there can't be considered black, and excessive drug use is commen, due to the lack of things to do. There is very little that the youth can use to entertain themselves, so everyone knows exactly where to buy heroin.
The style consists of brightly colored Lacoste shirts, usually layered, Khakis, and a looley placed visor on males, and a Jean skirts, a dress shirt over a polo, and flipflops for females, year round.
Mostly everyone owns more than one house, and a boat.
Girl: So, what do you want to do tonight?
Boy: Big party on my boat. Bring your bong.
Girl: Awesome. What time?
Boy: Doesn't matter, if you miss us, we'll send my assistant to get you in the Grady.

greenwich is a wealthy town, no doubt about it. you can add a whole list of other things- preppy, predominantly white, etc. but the definitions here are "a bit" exaggerated. the reality of greenwich has been fabricated here and there, and suddenly it sounds like a TV show or something...everybody is described as an inarticulate, snobby, fantastically rich druggie who acts ghetto. there are people who are some of these things, but not all of greenwich is this way. the greenwich stereotype has been taken to a new level, and greenwich is, in truth, not at all as extreme as it has been portrayed.
this is a true story: i was talking with a woman who had recently moved to greenwich (approximately 6 months ago), and she said she had encountered none of the snobbery that greenwich was famous for. this is not to say that greenwich is free of snobbery, but that for the most part, it is rarely present.

While Greenwich is one of the nation’s wealthiest towns, it is clear many of the teens posting on here have exaggerated the lifestyle. Yes, the people in this town are living better then 97% of the nation’s population, but many of you have simply glamorized the town and the lifestyle that the people lead.
I cant tell if these definations are tongue and cheek or if they are actually serious

An extremely stereotyped town in Southern Fairfield County, Connecticut. Because the property values are high, and there are some areas with mostly large houses, people from Greenwich are tagged as stuck up and ignorant. Although less goes on there than in alot of major cities, that doesn't mean there are no nice people. Look past your preconcieved notions when you are there.
Man1: Look! Their liscence plate says "Honda of Greenwich" they must be rich scumbags!"
Man2: Yeah! lets tailgate them.
Man1: Good idea!

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 something people assume really isn't.

A town in Connecticut about which certain people who don't live there love to make generalizations in order to feel better about (or simply mask) how white, privileged, racist, and stuck up they themselves are.

Greenwich is actually home to a wide variety of people. Its working class quarried the stones that built the Brooklyn Bridge. Greenwich residents have served in all America's major wars from the Revolution to Iraq. In fact, a Greenwich man was the first American soldier to die in World War I.

Sure, I could go on a long rant about the town's many faults, but it's home. Unless you've lived there, shut the fuck up.
"Wow - everyone who lives in Greenwich evidently rides flying Ferraris made of solid gold mined by African children and powered by the tears of displaced Native Americans. Guess I can absolve myself of all my white guilt now."
