Greenwich = nightlife?

OK, we can never, ever complain that there's "nothing to do" in Stamford, because there's even less to do in Greenwich! The New York Post decided to fact-check Governor Rell's claim that Greenwich is "a wonderland of low-cost living and high-end nightlife." Low-cost living - in Greenwich? Um...

Anyway, here's what they found: Dullsville, Conn.

The sad thing: The NY Post is right.

Scary, right? Maybe the Weekly World News isn't so out there anymore...

The early closing of all the shops and restaurants on greenwich ave is one of the great shames of this area. There's no reason Greenwich, with its street level shops, high density and great walkability shouldn't have a great thriving downtown at night. It would the be the star of all the urban centers in suburbia. Alas. At least we have south nowrwalk and, to a degree, Stamford at times.

All that said, what an idiotic article. Greenwich 60 miles from manhattan? Are they talking Bridgeport or Greenwich? And last call at midnight? And relying on two 18 year old smokers for signs of the vibrancy of a city? Really? I realize this is the Post, but someone needs to show this article as exhibit A when someone claims the virtues of traditional media over blogs, etc...

Yeah, I know it's a fluff piece from a trashy newspaper, but I thought it was funny. Anything that knocks our snooty neighbors to the southwest is cool in my book! :)
