Every year in May, there is the Greenwich Town Party. The sold-out event has had performances from musicians such as Earth, Wind, and Fire, the Doobie Brothers (2015), the Temptations (2011), James Taylor (2012), Paul Simon (2013), Santana and Buddy Guy (2014), John Fogerty, Hall and Oates (2016) and Steely Dan (2017).
Greenwich has been named one of the best places to live by several media outlets, including CNN and Money Magazine, and has been recognized for being home to some of the most successful people in the nation.
With easy access to New York City on Metro North, Greenwich is a commuter’s dream. For those with children, Greenwich has high-achieving public schools as well as many private education options. Both public and private schools boast high acceptance rates into the country’s best colleges and universities.
Every residential section within the Town’s fifty mile radius offers something different. Low key family lifestyle and a small town atmosphere is the hallmark of many areas, especially in Byram, Pemberwick and Glenville. Central and back country Greenwich areas offer quality amenities associated with a city lifestyle wrapped in a neighbor-like style. Cos Cob, Riverside and Old Greenwich areas offer the unlimited pleasures of parks, walking trails and waterside.
