A small town in Connecticut. Everyone is so stereotypical of this town, and seriously, 1 out of 25 people is actually "typical greenwich." Sure, maybe the people who live here like nice things, but we can't help the way we're brought up. And the whole town is not full of "McMansions," it actually has normal houses. And the people here are normal too. Reading the other things on this website about Greenwich made me want to hurt someone. That is so not okay to write about someones home town. I have lived here my whole life, and I can honestly say I love it, and I AM pretty down to Earth. So stop being so rude, and stop being so hypocritical. You make me want to cry when you say those things. Honestly, NOT OKAY AT ALL.
Where do you live?
I live in Greenwich, Ct.
Oh, so you're a brat?
Oh, well you're a really cool person and not what I thought someone from Greenwich would be at all!

A town in Connecticut in which every body has mad money. there is swilling weekly at the amazing house parties in back country mansions. The cheapest houses are in the high hundred thousands. The most expensive are in back country or bell haven, the homes are about thirty million. Greenwich has more money than the other wealthy Connecticut towns such as Darien or New Cannan. The kids how ever aren't snobs at all, they just tend to flaunt they are from Greenwich. They don't need to say where they are from for people to know they are rich. on lookers can tell by the polo shirts, LV bags, and many more over priced... but must have items. Greenwich is tooo hottt to handle, but its where EVERYONE wants to live. I mean millionaire kids think they are poor if they dont live in back country..... GOTTA LOVE IT
a poor girls nightmare, an average girls dream, a rich girls domain..... greenwich

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 a town people assume is soemthing it really isnt

I have read many definitions of Greenwich, CT, but none seem to be accurate. Yes, there are a couple people who wear polos all the time, but for the most part, people wear whatever they want. True, we do have our "greenwich slang" but we don't use it all the time like some of the examples in other peoples definitions. Greenwich is a small town in CT and is comfortably close to New York City. If someone wanted to go to NY they could just take the train that is located at the bottom of Greenwich Ave. The best spot to hang out in in Greenwich is Greenwich Avenue, also called "the ave". Over all, sure Greenwich does have some snobs, but honestly, what town doesn't? Greenwich is a great place to live and I'm very happy to have that privilege. Greenwich is an amazing place to live, and it really does have the best parties!

A place where people are surrounded by wealth, and provided with a safety net of money so that they never have to strive for anything of consequence. Because no one ever has to work for anything that has to do with death or living, they are given ample time to make up new rules which they strive to live by and cannot cross ie. dress codes, and other blantant displays of wealth. People are so focused on these things that they become detached from actual living and focus all of there energy on living in a superfluous and materialistic world. However, if people took a step outside the bubble to see what is actually real, they would be able to, with all their FREEDOM and time, become great thinkers and use their minds to solve the greater problems in the world. So, by creating this world of wealth and materialism, the ignorant people of greenwich(which there are exceptions to) are distracting themselves from the world they live in and hurting themselves in the long run. Oh some of the reason why your parents are so rich is because they are brilliant people.
Just step outside the greenwich bubble...you will be so much happier.

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.

only in greenwich does one see a five year old girl dressed in the complete lilly outfit, along with her mother in a completely matching dress. Jack rogers are the way to go, along with rainbows, eliza b's, and if the mothers shoe closet is not filled with at least three pairs of prada shoes then they are shunned from their social life. Girls are known to all have the same hair color, slightly dirty blonde with platinum highlights. If one is ever seen with a middle part, she will be quickly chastized by her peers, and will quickly adjust her below the shoulder, perfectly straightened hair, to a close-to-a-comb-over side part. Even the boys must wear their hair on the side, of course with wings, buzz cuts are not acceptable. Popped collars are the dress code and you must be wearing coach ballet flats even through the snow. Often times boys and girls wear the same thing such as madras shorts or skirts, seesucker bermuda shorts, and ralph lauren cashmere cable knit sweaters.If seen with solow pants ROLLED, not one person will speak to you. Fashion seems to be timeless in this Greenwich bubbble. The interest in such clothing like vineyard vines, ralph lauren, lacoste, j.crew and other popular boutiques is passed down from generation to generation. If your home is under a million dollars, you are considered in the "lower class".
Education is extremely important to these wealthy families, considering most of the children's tuitions are equal to the rest of the world's yearly salary. Often times, kids are sent away to boarding schools to pursue thier athletic careers. Popular sports include lacrosse, field hockey, ice hockey, tennis, squash, sailing, football, and golf.
Once a child reaches the age of twelve or so, they are allowed to travel the avenue with their new cell phone and debit card. Overpriced does not even exist in the Greenwich vocabulary. A twenty dollar undershirt is considered dirt cheap. Eighty dollars for a pair of sweatpants? Oh my gosh that is such a bargain. Looking for a cute inexpensive shirt to wear to a school dance might require a one hundred and fifty dollar bill at Reflection of Wishlist. Most of the families own two houses or rent the same one every year in such popular places as Vail, Nantucket, and the Vineyard.
