of the community for 50-plus years. Now under the management of chef/owner Mike Pietrafeso and his wife, Krista, the renovated space is sleek and cheerful with a mouthwatering mix of grab-and-go options. Start the day with avocado toast or a blueberry chia smoothie; for lunch, the kale and quinoa salad bowl is sublime. As for its coffee drinks, Ada’s features beans from Path Coffee Roasters in Portchester, New York. And carrying on a long-standing tradition, there is even a penny candy bar for after-school treats. In Old Greenwich, SWEET PEA’S BAKING COMPANY is the Michaels New York of the neighborhood. On a typical weekday morning,

it is the place to see and be seen. Part of the appeal of this popular cafe is the locale—right on Sound Beach Avenue—and the other part is the convivial setting, as the venue features a big, open space with plenty of seating and artcovered walls. Sweet Pea’s owners hail from Brazil originally, so in addition to fresh-roasted coffee and classic breakfast fare—think muffins, scones, triple-stacked pancakes and scrambled eggs—there are several Brazilian staples in the mix, such as pao de queijo, a cheese bread that pairs perfectly with coffee, and brigadeiros (bonbons). There are glutenfree options on the menu, too, and for “littles” there are dishes for kids.

Lorca’s latte is its most popular coffee, along with the cortado.

Also at Lorca, the manchego sage pesto sandwich is a must-order, for breakfast or lunch. Craving something sweet? Try the no-butter, orange olive oil cake, made with orange rinds, orange juice and yogurt.

offee lovers rejoice. Whether you are searching for a classic macchiato, a flat white, a pour-over nitro or a freshpressed cold brew, you’ll find it in Greenwich, where the coffee and cafe culture is thriving. Here are five of the town’s most popular gathering spots. Since 2012, residents have gravitated to COFFEE CAFE ROASTERS on Greenwich Avenue, one of the town’s first boutique coffee joints. In addition to home-baked goodies and granolas, the brew is sublime. People come for informal meetings and to work on their laptops, but as the beans are roasted in-house it’s worth a visit just for the aroma alone. Toward the bottom of the Avenue, LE PAIN QUOTIDIEN is tucked inside a cream-colored clapboard row house, where the interior is all exposed-brick wainscoting and reclaimed wood millwork, with long wooden tables for family-style seating. Here you’ll find an excellent cup of coffee, as well as a full-service menu of homemade soups, sandwiches and fresh-baked breads. New to Cos Cob, LORCA COFFEE BAR is tucked into the front of Fleisher’s Craft Butchery on East Putnam Avenue. The bright and airy space is ideal for sipping a steaming cortado (half espresso, half milk) while digging into one of Lorca’s signature churros—fried dough sprinkled with sugar and served with dipping sauces. There is food to go, too, including orange olive oil cake and homemade syrups. Not far from the train station in Riverside, ADA’S KITCHEN + COFFEE has been part

COUNTRY CLUBS Greenwich also boasts two superb yacht clubs, both of which date back to the late 19th century. First founded in 1888 as a club for the local community, RIVERSIDE YACHT CLUB has grown to become a major contender in yachting circles. It has a superb marina, pool, tennis courts and a strong competitive sailing program for kids and adults alike. Closer to downtown Greenwich, the grande dame of yacht clubs

is Indian Harbor. Built in 1889 on land leased from Boss Tweed, INDIAN HARBOR is first and foremost a yacht club with a rich history tied to

famous ocean racers and the America’s Cup. Adding to its allure is the picturesque setting at the mouth of Greenwich Harbor; at night, dining on the terrace is a singular experience. Although not technically a yacht club, the GREENWICH WATER CLUB in Cos Cob offers water activities, plus three pools and a riverfront setting. There’s an on-site rowing facility and storage for shells, a modern fitness center and a chic dining room, all of which add to the family-friendly vibe. The town also has several highly sought-after community clubs. Established in 1929, The MILBROOK CLUB’S elegant Tudor clubhouse anchors a delightful nine-hole golf course, swimming, tennis, paddle tennis and lakeside dining, and all of this underwent a major facelift in 2017. There’s more good news for prospective members of this club: Millbrook offers an ex-pat program for families relocating to Greenwich from overseas. In Old Greenwich, the ROCKY POINT CLUB is a seasonal option for families who enjoy the breezy barefoot

vibe, while BELLE HAVEN CLUB—with its shingle-style clubhouse, prime waterfront setting and active sailing program—is designed for residents of Belle Haven. In Glenville, the BAILIWICK CLUB offers swimming and tennis in summer and paddle tennis in winter. In a category all its own, the FIELD CLUB of Greenwich is dedicated to racket sports, with a choice of grass and clay courts, plus paddle tennis and squash. There are theme evenings, pool parties and Shakespeare lectures.

f you’re buying a new home, the neighborhood you select is as important as the house you choose. How do you find the right one? Fortunately, Greenwich offers a variety of areas to consider, and diversity in geography, atmosphere and price. Those who want to put down roots in a place with a busy downtown vibe will find it in Greenwich. And then there are the leafier neighborhoods

with more long and winding roads, as well as communities deep in the country, with four-acre zoning, plenty of privacy and incredible scenery. If you want a saltwater breeze in the backyard, other hamlets hug the rocky shoreline. Yet in every neighborhood, you’ll find a new favorite coffee shop or hiking trail. With so many appealing options, there really is something for everyone in Greenwich. 59

THE FACES OF GREENWICH

GREENWICH HISTORICAL SOCIETY

Riverside

AREA: EXIT 5 OFF I-95 • HIGHLIGHTS: WATERFRONT VIEWS; PLAYGROUNDS; COLORFUL HISTORY

THE COMMUNITY OF RIVERSIDE IS focused on the water, since much of its two square miles stretches along the rocky inlets and secluded coves formed along its borders by the Mianus River and Long Island Sound. Because of the way it’s situated, topographically higher than Old Greenwich, the area affords water views for many residents, even those who live inland. The history of Riverside dates back to the 17th century. At that time, and up until 1870, it was known as Mianus Neck and was primarily a community of farmers, fishermen and oystermen. Today, Riverside is a sought-after residential area, whose denizens love its offthe-beaten path feel, excellent schools, and easy accessibility to I-95 and Metro North. The main thoroughfare is Riverside Avenue, which runs south from Route 1 (East Putnam Avenue) to Old Greenwich. Route 1—better known as the Post Road—is home to businesses that offer a variety of services, as well as BALDUCCI’S gourmet grocery store and AUX DELICES, a catering company with delicious prepared foods. From Route 1, Riverside Avenue (known until the mid-19th century as Potato Road because of all the potato cellars that were found here) swings past leafy, tree-lined streets that seem to meander around with no particular destination in mind. Many find their way to the water—the river, the harbor or the Sound—where egrets and herons strut along tidal flats and buoys clang in the breeze. Riverside has its share of celebrity homeowners—not unlike the rest of Greenwich. They tend to congregate in the gated areas that run along the coast, including one with its own private beach. Many neighborhoods have a colorful past. Willowmere, for instance, was named for the willow trees that grew here—they were

harvested during the Civil War to make prosthetics for wounded soldiers. Willowmere was also known as Publisher’s Row, since the Harcourts, Braces and other families in the business were residents. In summer, those who own boats often motor over to TOD’S POINT for a beach day, bypassing the traffic on Sound Beach Avenue. Families, in particular, love the convenience of RIVERSIDE YACHT CLUB (members only) and Riverside Elementary School, where students are welcomed outside each morning by their principal and members of the fifth grade. There are wonderful playgrounds and fields, too. After school, kids of all ages flock to ADA’S KITCHEN + COFFEE SHOP for homemade baked goods and other treats. Originally the town post office, the building was converted in the 1950s to the RIVERSIDE VARIETY STORE and was for many years the go-to spot for penny candy and Ada’s kind counsel. Not surprisingly, commuters who walk to the train station stop here for their early-morning caffeine fix and breakfast sandwiches. And busy moms pop in for the venue’s healthy grab-and-go salad bowls and fruit smoothies. Although the train station has no particular historic value, the cast-iron bridge that crosses the tracks is on the National Register of Historic Places. Built in 1871, it was originally part of a railroad bridge over the Housatonic River in Stratford, Connecticut. It was moved to Riverside in the late 1800s. Another local landmark is the FERRIS HOUSE on Cary Road, which dates back to 1760. Besides being a wonderful play area for toddlers, ST. PAUL’S EPISCOPAL CHURCH has a superb day-care program. There are also four town-owned tennis courts on Lockwood Avenue that are fully subscribed from dawn to dusk during the summer, and the shops of Old Greenwich are an easy drive or bike ride away.

HISTORY IN THE MAKING

ADA’S  In 1950, Ada Cantavero opened her store by the railroad station and started doling out penny candy, milk and newspapers. Today, sweets are still sold here, along with gourmet sandwiches. LANGELOTH ESTATE Just before World War I, metals millionaire John Jacob Langeloth turned 57 acres of rundown waterfront property into a magnificent estate with a sunken outdoor theater and seating for an audience of 1,500. Later, when his widow Valeria remarried, the Bonhams staged Greek theatricals with their guests, who danced among the fountains, statues, roses and 25,000 daffodils.

MARKS MANSION  Around 1872, the well-heeled businessman Amasa Abraham Marks bought 100 acres of farmland in Riverside in order to create a willow plantation to supply his New York City factory that made artificial limbs for Civil War veterans. His Victorian mansion has stood proudly on Willowmere Circle since 1889.

VOLUNTEER FIRE CO.  Since 1922, the Cos Cob Volunteer Fire Company has been a landmark on the Post Road. It’s come a long way from the Mianus Ladder & Hose Company, pictured here in 1900 with the first automotive pumper built at Mianus Boatworks. DAVID O’NEIL  Actor/poet David O’Neil moved here in 1926 hoping to build a Greek-style outdoor amphitheater. His son Horton completed the structure in the 1930s in pink and white marble. It seated 700, but was never used except for private performances. Last year preservationists saved it from destruction; it’s been rebuilt at Sarah Lawrence College.

WRITERS TOO  While Cos Cob was known historically as an artists’ colony, it was also the favorite residence of novelists Willa Cather and Anya Seton, playwright Eugene O’Neill, and historian Barbara Tuchman, a two-time Pulitzer Prize winner. Upon her death, the Tuchman property became a battleground between her daughters.

HISTORY IN THE MAKING

GREENWICH LAND TRUST  Thanks to Louise Mueller, four acres of land at Old Mill and Round Hill roads, including her renovated farmhouse, have become the headquarters of the Greenwich Land Trust. It had once been part of a century-old 90-acre estate called the Orchards, where the Greek Revival mansion, Seabury House, served as an Episcopal Church conference center.

CHIEFTAINS  In 1911 Borden Milk heir Alfred Whitney Church bought 250 acres in Backcountry and created Chieftains, an estate he later sold to Isaac Gimbel of department store fame. Three generations of Gimbels lived there, until the death of Alva Gimbel in 1983. Then, it became the site of a handsome gated community.

HISTORY IN THE MAKING

RETAIL THERAPY The Byram Building (shown here in 1960) was home to a number of local businesses, including the Thomas L. Vinci pharmacy. BYRAM QUARRIES  From the 1800s on, Byram quarries were in full swing. They supplied the bluestone for the Brooklyn Bridge, the Statue of Liberty and St. Roc’s church, founded in 1918 and lovingly built by parishoners who were Italian stonemasons. You can still see the steep sides of a quarry in Byram Shore Park.

SHELL ISLAND TOWER The 60-foot tower on Shell Island off the Byram shore was built by chemist Otto Eimer in 1925 as a family museum. One floor was devoted to Thomas Edison memorabilia, Eimer’s company being his official glassblower. In 1991, the five-acre island sold to Byram resident Julius Silver, who donated it to the Greenwich Land Trust as a nature preserve.

SCHOOLHOUSE  Dating back to 1756, Glenville’s one-room schoolhouse served the community around the gristmill. By 1882, it was a two-story building where most students were the children of Irish immigrants who worked in the textile mill. VOLUNTEER FIRE CO  Needing coverage on the outskirts of town, the Glenville Volunteer Fire company began operating in 1903 with a gift of a non-motorized hand pumper. In the 1950s, to be closer to the felt mill (a big employer and big fire hazard) a new firehouse was located at the intersection of Glenville and Riversville roads where it remains today.

GLENVILLE HISTORIC DISTRCIT  On the site of what was once a castle, a plaque announces Glenville’s 34-acre Historic District (1718-1955). The original settlement of Glenville is a prime example of a New England mill village, attracting large numbers of Irish in the 19th century and Poles in the 20th.
