Where is Greenwich, Connecticut, USA? 

Greenwich, Fairfield, Connecticut, USA
On July 18, 1640, Daniel Patrick and Robert Feake, jointly purchased the land between the Asamuck and Patommuck brooks, in the area now known as Old Greenwich, from Wiechquaesqueek Munsees living there for "twentie-five coates." What is now called "Greenwich Point" was natively called Monakeywaygo. Elizabeth Feake renamed the point, her personal purchase, "Elizabeth's Neck." In the 1900's it was renamed Tod's Point and it is now officially called Greenwich Point.wikipedia
