Greenwich City, Connecticut

Greenwich is a city in the United States, in Fairfield County, Connecticut, at Long Island Sound. It is located 48 km northeast of New York, part of the New York region. In 2017, the city had just over 60,000 residents.

Greenwich is a prosperous residential suburb that has historically had some printing, publishing and mechanical industries, but has emerged in recent decades as an attractive home for wealthy people due to its proximity to New York and a lower tax rate than the metropolis. For the same reason, several financial companies, including hedge funds, have established themselves in the city.

Greenwich was founded in 1640 by Daniel Patrick, who bought the site from the indigenous people for 25 English coats, and it gained city status as early as 1665.

Bridgeport, Connecticut

According to Countryaah.com, Bridgeport is the largest city in the state of Connecticut in the United States with 146,579 residents (2017). It is a port city at the mouth of the Pequennock River in the Long Island Strait, about 80 miles northwest of New York City. Bridgeport is located in southwestern Connecticut and is known for its many public parks. The town is named after a wind bridge over the Pequennock River.

Population

Together with Stamford and Norwalk, Bridgeport forms a larger metropolitan area with approximately 950,000 residents. The population was in a slight decline until 2000, but has since increased until it was approximately the same in 2017 as in 1930.

Economics and culture

Previously, electrical equipment, transport equipment, machine tools, weapons, typewriters, auto parts and food products were manufactured, but the industrial sector has been significantly reduced. Today, service delivery, with an emphasis on financial services, healthcare and education, is most important.

In and at Bridgeport there are two universities and several colleges. There are two major hospitals.

The Barnum Museum, in memory of the circus owner and impresario Phineas T. Barnum, is a major attraction. The Greater Bridgeport Symphony is an orchestra with a rich history. The city has several theaters.

History

The first documented settlement was in 1644 and was named Pequennock by the indigenous people of the area. Agriculture and fishing were the main business routes. The village of Newfield grew in the 1760s. In 1695 or 1701 the area was called Stratfield because it was located between the towns of Stratfield and Fairfield.

Newfield expanded through coastal trade with Boston, New York, Baltimore and the West Indies. In 1800 the town was named Bridgeport. It became a center for trade, shipbuilding and whaling. Following the establishment of the New York- New Haven rail link in 1849, Bridgeport quickly became industrialized. From 1870 to 1910 Bridgeport was the most important industrial center in Connecticut and received a significant increase in population.

The industry was greatly reduced in the 1970s and 1980s and the proportion of poor people increased. After 2000, the city center and other urban areas have been rehabilitated.
