08/20/08 Let's Check In With Greenwich's Most Knowledgable Real Estate Reporter Chris Fountain Opines On The Greenwich Post And Greenwich Landing

Watch out below! The Greenwich Post, my former paper and now not much more than a lightweight vehicle for Advertising ...

I had high hopes for this project because I thought it would help revive Byram but so far, things are looking a little depressed.

The Greenwich Landing marina will accompany a riverfront boardwalk open to the public. The boardwalk is part of the Byram Neighborhood Association’s master plan for landscape improvements and neighborhood enhancements.....
