Welcome to Downtown Greenwich
Downtown Greenwich is the hub of economic activity and the seat of town government. This once principal farming area of town, known as Horseneck, supplied much of the produce for New York. The advent of the railroad in the mid-nineteenth century was an economic boom for central Greenwich, transforming Greenwich Avenue into the major shopping center it is today, with its many upscale stores and top-rated restaurants. It is also where the main Greenwich library, Bruce Museum, Greenwich Hospital, and many other town institutions are located. The central Greenwich area offers a wide range of residential opportunities, from apartments and condominiums to exclusive waterfront properties in Belle Haven and Mead Point.
