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.
7.) If you dont pop ur collar then u should just simply be shot by ones bodyguard.
The simple rules must be followed if not, then simply move to Hartford.

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?
NOT. AT. ALL.
Oh, well you're a really cool person and not what I thought someone from Greenwich would be at all!

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.

in greenwich everyone has at least a mercedes, many have bentleys or rolls-royces. the average house if $10 million, and everyone goes on trips everywhere all the time. if you dont have a second house, or something that you dont need over 800 grand, like a bugatti or plane you are poor.

rich town in fairfield county. I myself live in Greenwich, Ct. i have seen the kids abusing drugs. Yes there are many preppy toolish kids but a vast majority of the residents in Greenwich are normal and down to earth. The people here are wealthier than most but thats not the case for everyone.
kids here use words such as, (freedman), (mad), (chill), (danksauce), (get nice), (biddy).
Freedman: I LIKE IT UP THE BUTT, give me cock please
Crowd: you go do yo thang freedman of 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

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

most people who write definitions for greenwich dont even live here so stfu cause i do. people here dont wear lacoste or polo shirts or preppy clothes with collars like wtf what kind of style is that? i havent seen anyone with coach flats all year round, it doesnt matter if your hair is parted in the middle, and you will not be discriminated against society if you dont wear polos or have prada shoes. lots of people here shop in cheap stores like marshalls and stores where everything is a lower price. most people here arent filthy rich and live in normal sized houses. yes lots of stuff might be overpriced but that does not mean we can all afford it. people dont go to parties everyday, most people actually work for their money. i dont see tons of sports cars driving around on the streets and girls dont go around shopping all day on the avenue. i know that we might live better than other people but that doesn't mean that we are filthy snotty preppy stuck-up people who have no idea what the outside world is like. most people here are nice and if they are mean its not because they are rich. and people who are rich worked for their money they didnt just get it somehow. the stereotypes of greenwich really are hilarious. if you want to know what it is really like, not something out of a movie where everything is perfect and all the people are preppy and filthy rich, stop making up lies just come here and visit it yourself.
All of the greenwich stereotypes are not true.
