The diversity of the city can be seen through exploring its streets. The Central Greenwich area has meandering streets filled with small houses and businesses and is where the more affordable homes are found. Along the peninsulas, though, sit large million dollar homes. More luxury homes are found in Millbrook, although this area was originally built in the 30s. Putnam Park is another affordable area, but there are mainly condos here. Affordable single-family homes can be found in Putnam Hill, though. Condos are generally more readily available throughout the city over single-family homes. With so many home options, Greenwich is often considered one of the best suburbs to live in this part of the country.
Greenwich, CT, is a nice mix of residents even though many figures related to the city skew things to make it seem like only the rich live here. In fact, in the downtown area, many working class people live in apartments above the shops and businesses located there. Additionally, the town is full of condos, apartment houses and modest single-family homes that are found among the larger, more luxurious houses. The median home price of $1.34 million is not as representative of the whole city when you consider all these other factors.SHOW MORE
