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.

Greenwich is the absolute most boring town. There is nothing to do at all there. All people do is sit around their huge houses and do nothing but brag about how rich they are. The only way kids entertain themselves is by going to the avenue where most "normal people" can't even afford to buy a t-shirt. The Greenwich teens think they are all ghetto but they really don't even know the meaning of ghetto. They are just so bored that they don't have anything better to do with there lives. If Greenwich is so rich why don't people buy things to make their lives more exciting? A typical day for a Greenwich teen consist of either a party or the movies but it doesn't get any more exciting than that. Everyone thinks that Greenwich is so great but in reality it is boring and everyone is stuck up and snobby. I live here....trust me
Paris - There is nothing to do in Greenwich!
Chanel - OMG I know. We could go see a movie maybe?
Paris- I've already seen all the movies in the theater.
Chanel - Same. Well, wanna go get drunk then?
Paris- I'm down.

A real-life PLEASANTVILLE.
People here are beyond WEIRD, beyond comprehensible. This is an extremely sheltered place made for cowards who can't handle the real world and are basically afraid of anyone who doesn't look like them. A fish living in a fishbowl believes the whole world is under water because that is the ONLY WORLD they know.

The kids are the ones who suffer the most. They grow up to be the douchebags on Wallstreet with no sense of right and wrong. It is a breeding ground for narcissistics who weren't brought up to be decent to people except to those exactly like them. And these screwed-up ideas are confirmed right here in this lovely town :)

Most disturbing are the cowards who raise these kids in their pathetic bubble. For example, the public library wasn't built until relatively recently. WASP kids here seriously don't believe that things like discrimination or inequality still exist. No joke. Or if they do, they have no problem making themselves as comfortable as possible. The question is - how the hell do these kids get so brainwashed?

Outside this backwards and reactionary town, there is sanity (aka real world) and truth. This is the 21st Century. There is no need to put up with that kind of BS. Go to Pleasantville only to appreciate your own life and the real values in it all the more. For those still living there, I sincerely hope the fishbowl doesn't become too filthy for you to live in. (because god knows what other place would want you people)
Girl raised-and-born in greenwich: okay dad, what a great movie! Didn't you like the scene where....?

Greenwich-dad: We should hurry home. I've been living for 50 years, and I don't want to get shot by some random black person in Stamford now.

(you wonder why kids born-and-bred in Greenwich always go back to raise their own lovely families...)

Fairfield county is reputed to be eminently rich and obviously it is, however few towns in this area really grasp the idea of being the elite, the cream of the crop, the i-don't-care-because -you'll-be-working-for -me-in-ten-years, but Greenwich does. That's why this it's so special because the kids already know they're going to be successful, not because they work hard, not because they perpetually strive to be at the top, but because they were born into a particular family, and that is fair game. They know how to act, they know how to party, and although many other towns in southern Connecticut try to pursue Greenwich's goals, they are not even close. The people who live in Greenwich and hate being there is probably due to the fact that they moved from New Jersey and they are ugly. But any decent human beings know that a place like Greenwich can only be enjoyed by the best.
Kid: What do you think of that kid?
Other Kid: Um... i think he needs to lose that flat brim, and his trashy A4, he also needs to go back to Shelton because i hear that's ok over there.
Kid: No doubt, lets be out, I can only be away from Greenwich for so long before these corolla's start making my head hurt
