Riverside, with it’s own zip code 06878 is a sailor’s delight! Three sides are bordered by water – the Mianus River, the Cos Cob Harbor and the Long Island Sound. It is easy to understand why residents who love fishing and boating and simply looking out at the Sea, choose this neighborhood. The train station on the Metro-North line is within walking distance of many of the homes. Commuters from NYC hop off in Riverside and minutes later they are at home.
The Riverside Garden Club, a member of the National Council of State Garden Clubs, heartily welcomes new members. Members have a wonderful time as they work on horticultural education and projects to enhance the beauty of Greenwich. New residents quickly show a lot of pride in Riverside. Even before you have unpacked your boxes, you will want to join the Newcomers Club, formerly know as the Old Greenwich Riverside Club. Over 280 members are taking part in morning coffees and evening socials. Attend a Riverside game and you may find yourself cheering, “Go Riverside Gators!” The Greenwich Youth Football League is for children 8 – 13. Everyone has fun!
Riverside residents have close ties with neighboring Old Greenwich, often dashing there to enjoy activities or shop on Sound Beach Avenue.
