Get the door, it's the liquor store
Being the southernmost town in Connecticut kind of makes Greenwich the gateway to New England for anyone coming from NYC.... And what a gateway it is: crystal-clear waters among its fjord-like inlets, restaurants and vacation spots galore, and infrastructure that shows some serious investment on this part of the town. Greenwich was founded in 1640 partly by John Winthrop’s daughter-in-law, making this a true piece of New England history. Twice the size of Manhattan by area, Greenwich’s population of just over 60,000 creates a spacious feeling that’s an absolute luxury for anyone commuting to the city. It’s an easy commute, too — a cool 45 minutes by car from downtown Manhattan, or a bit over an hour on the train. Essentially what you have here is the golden trifecta: a place that’s great to live, great to vacation in and easy to get to and from. To round out its accolades, may we also humbly remind you that Greenwich is now served by Drizly. We make it possible for you to order the best beers, wines and spirits from our online store and have them delivered within an hour. Welcome to New England, baby.
