If you are looking for a place to live, play and raise a family in a cozy suburban area of Greenwich, You will LOVE Byram. In his state of the Town message, Peter Tesei, our First Selectman, said he felt Byram was the neighborhood to watch. It’s rising rapidly in value. Visit the brand new New Lebanon School, the gorgeous new pool in the Byram Beach Park and the Byram Schubert Library and you will know, he is absolutely right!
In the words of the residents:
Byram is a place with a suburban life, but it also has a whole city vibe happening about it as well. It’s right next to Port Chester NY and so close to Manhattan which is great!
Our elementary school is brand new and designed so beautifully. My children can’t wait to go every morning. They are so lucky to be there. It’s sunny, with the latest technology and the teachers are so warm and caring.
Popular restaurants are in Byram. Folks from all over town come here to eat. We celebrated Mother’s day at Char. Our family favorite is the Famous Greek Kitchen, and when the kids are especially good, we’re off to Burgers Shakes and Fries – the Best hamburger spot in Ct.
We can walk to the Byram Beach Park. We like to play tennis and there are three courts there and the new pool is amazing. They have excellent swimming lessons! This is a huge park with a marina, lighted baseball field, playground and picnic area.
Perhaps the greatest thing about Byram is its diversity. My neighbors come from all over the world. When you are out and about, you’ll hear many different languages. So many different backgrounds and life interests. We love it!
The Byram Schubert Library is our year round favorite place to be. They have daily programs for everyone of all ages. My little one goes weekly to hear a story, sing and make crafts. I have learned to make unique international dishes and my friend is a member of the Proust Group. The library is like a neighborhood get-together place.
