Ye Greate Street

A single shaded wide street through the center of this small 200+ year old country town. Large trees and many colonial era homes grace each side of the street, some homes built in the late 1600's, many in the 1700's. There is one general store (milk, eggs, deli), post office, fire-rescue department, a seafood restaurant & two marinas on the Cohansey river. Greenwich boasts both a maritime history and colonial history.

Rural area surrounds Ye Greate Street 

Open land, woodland and marshland.  Open land farmed - soybeans, corn, tomatoes, and peppers. Wildlife includes deer, raccoon, opossum, fox, skunk, turkeys, geese and squirrel. Pests - biting flies in June and July are greenheads and strawberry flies, followed by mosquitoes. (The local ballfield is named 'Greenhead Park') Summers can get quite humid from moisture from the river and Delaware Bay.  Spring and fall are pleasant. Winters are more influenced by coastal weather activity migrating northward up the coast from the Carolinas, rather than weather migrating from the mid-west traveling east.
