A Town on the East Coast that is extremely close to New York City. Many of the kids who go there are excessivally good looking, have rich or famous parents, and own everything they want. You do not exsist if you do not consistantly wear ralph lauren or lacoste polos, and if you do not use the correct launguage while interacting, then nothing will make sense to the people you are talking to. (Language consists of the phrases "mad" "chill" and "straight". Often kids will be sent off to boarding school due to bad behavior, and then kicked out since boarding school suplys more drugs than a rich g-wich kid can ask for. During the summer if you do not sail or travel around the world then you most likely belong to a rich summer club (or rocky point) that has either golf, tennis, or sailing. Depending on who you involve yourself with, you could get nice friends, or friends who will always be your enemies. (also, parties are off the hook)The most popular sport is water polo (mainly for boys) and most all the water polo boys are exremely gorgeous and are excessive stoners.
Sebastian: That dude didnt pop his coller today, his polo wasn't even lacoste or ralph lauren
Dylon: Dude thats not straight, lets pop him at lunch after we hit that joint
Sebastian:Shyea dude, that sounds mad chill
Laura: Excuse me bitches but that doesn't seem right, i give him points for at least layering the nantucket red and sailboat yellow
Guys: True True that chick has a pretty heavy reason...thats chill
Sebastian and Dylon: Tall blondes with aviators and rainbows, IQ ranges from 55-75 points
Laura: Gorgeous girl who gets every guy she wants, blonde too and matches polos with everything.....chill

People always talk about how this town is filled with rich spolied bitches. But take it from me yeah we might have a bit more money and our parents do have big jobs but why do we have to be penilized for that. I know that growing up in greenwich and not feeling like your fitting in can be tough... but the truth is that you just feel that way. i know that i am always nice to everybody all the new kids, kids who dress diffrent, people who dont have as many friends ect. Im just a normal kid who is growing up with alot of advantages in my life but i really am just that same as everyone else. There has to be a reason why everyone wants to live here and why it has become so expensive right? well to me i think its because everyone is so friendly, nice, caring and most people care more about others than themselfs. We dont get into collages because our "daddy" pays them off we work our asses off! and if anything our parents push school work more than anything because they want to see us suceed just like anybody else in the world. Although alot of kids do drugs not everyone does adn anyone can accept that fact. Its not that impossible to be diffrent in this kind of lifesytle. all types of people are accepted here.Its time sterotyping us stops because its getting a little pathetic
hey, i met a girl from greenwich and i really like her!

well dude shes from greenwich... you know that it wont last

whats that soposed to mean shes a nice girl just like everyone else?

The short definition: A mostly wealthy town in southern Connecticut, United States.
But there is more: Coming from a person who lives in Greenwich, I know it is not the way it is commonly perceived by the public. Many people believe EVERYone in G-wich is a stuck-up snob, that plays LAX or field hockey, that has beach houses, and who lives in a gigantore house. But that is not the case. Although it is true that a lot of people are like this, most of the people are just middle class people, trying to get along in life. Our public high school is filled with preppy white people, but there are some people that are other races that aren't rich. Probably more than you'd think. Also, our school district is very successful in academics and sports. So basically the stereotype of Greenwich, that it is a snobby town filled with rich pricks, is not completely true.
Ryan: When I was growing up, I lived in Greenwich, CT, but I was not rich and I didn't play LAX.

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!
Kate: Hey, Ana, wanna go to Greenwich ave later?

Ana: I'd love to Kate!

Kate: Kay, let's call the others and we can all hang out!
