Welcome to Greenwich
Framed by panoramic views of Long Island Sound, Old Greenwich presides over a peninsula at the southeastern edge of town. Beautiful beaches, marinas, idyllic parks, and enviable private associations allow residents to savor world class leisure in a close-knit community. Greenwich Point Park remains one of the town’s most iconic spots for swimming, fishing, and family recreation. Sound Beach Avenue hosts the neighborhood’s business district with popular shops, restaurants, a privately owned library, and the Old Greenwich train station.
Bordering the west end of Old Greenwich and east side of Cos Cob, Riverside is a vibrant shoreline community steeped in New England history. Once a quaint fishing and farming village, Riverside retains its coastal charm and boasts stunning scenery, exclusive private associations, and unparalleled amenities including the Riverside Yacht Club. Residents enjoy convenient proximity to all town shopping and restaurants, while Riverside’s train station provides an stress-free commute to NYC.
Encompassing four and a half square miles, Cos Cob is a historic waterfront district situated just west of the Mianus River. This desirable community provides residents with close proximity and easy walkability to local amenities including restaurants, the neighborhood library, the Greenwich Art Society, and the Cos Cob train station, making it an excellent option for families and professionals alike.
Greenwich Proper is home to a series of unique neighborhoods that combine cosmopolitan sophistication with small town charm. The downtown business district boasts the upscale shopping and acclaimed restaurants of Greenwich Avenue, while a railroad station provides easy access to Manhattan. Belle Haven and Byram are situated on the shoreline with exquisite views across Long Island Sound. Located south of the Merritt Parkway, the mid-country region is renowned for its natural beauty and protected conservation land. North of the Parkway, back-country Greenwich features some of the town’s most prestigious estate properties, unrivaled golf courses and miles of riding and nature trails. Much of the pastoral landscape is preserved by conservation organizations including Greenwich Land Trust.
