Even though it is not reality, Greenwich is a great place to live. We have the smallest house in Greenwich (probably the smallest house pretty much anywhere, less than 800 sq. ft.) & we're not Greenwich "material", but you can't beat it for casual beauty, convenience to any & everything you need or want in Fairfield & Westchester, as well as all the town benefits.
You will not believe the property taxes & mil rate because of the mega-rich businesses here. You may not be able to afford the property, but you can always pay your taxes (the exact opposite of Westchester, where I grew up & why we actually decided for a laugh to look at Greenwich back in the 1990's). Simple things like the town dump book exchange give you a small town feel & everyone on our block still wave at each other when they drive by (I came from New York & THAT took some getting used to, I can tell you!).
The City, Long Island (we love Jones Beach) & the upper states are easy to get to, so a variety of casual, comfortable vacations are possible when you want.
