Welcome to Greenwich

Greenwich is perhaps best known in popular culture as the town that inspired the 1972 Ira Levin sci-fi/horror novel The Stepford Wives, whose protagonist, Joanna, a newcomer to a wealthy, picture-perfect Connecticut town, begins to suspect that her frighteningly submissive housewife neighbors are robots created by their husbands. Much of the eponymous 1975 film and its 2004 remake were shot in the surrounding area. It's easy to see why.

For a real glimpse of moneyed Greenwich, head across Cos Cob Harbor to the exclusive enclave of Old Greenwich, which preserves the feel of the 1800s summer colony in its shingled Victorians and neatly landscaped, 24-acre Binney Park, resplendent with ponds and tennis courts.
