Greenwich rounds out our quartet of Fairfield County towns in the top 25, which also includes New Canaan, Darien and Westport. Like those neighbors, Greenwich is one of New York City's most exclusive suburbs, but its roots go far beyond being just a bedroom community.

Greenwich was founded in 1640 by English settlers who bought the land from local Native Americans for 25 English coats. The high-stakes wheeling and dealing continues: More than 100 hedge funds have set up shop there, lured by Greenwich's tax-friendly climate.
