History: You can thank Elizabeht Fones Winthrop for Greenwich. Back in 1640 she showed up and bought what is now known as Greenwich Point, but was then known as “Elizabeth’s Neck.” Some dude named Israel escaped from the Brits in Greenwich and even though the village was “pillaged” he was able to warn Stamford… We think the “City that Works” owes the “City of Old Money” a big “Thank You!”
It also gets named “Best Place to Live” and whatnot quite often.
Something Weird: As we all learned earlier this summer, Greenwich is overrun with mountain lions. People can barely step outside without getting mauled or finding themselves knee-deep in some confirmed cougar scat.
