Watch out below!
The Greenwich Post, my former paper and now not much more than a lightweight vehicle for advertising, has run a cheery article on those new condominiums on the Byram River (I’d give you a direct link to the story itself but the Post hasn’t figured out permalinks yet or else they fired the guy who had). “Greenwich Landing Makes a Splash”, cries the headline and I suppose that if that term brings to mind the noise accompanying a dead sailor being slid into the waves it’s accurate enough; so far as I can tell, reviewing the Greenwich Multiple Listing Service records, out of the twenty proposed units none have sold or are under contract, six are actively listed for sale and thirteen are presumably still under construction.

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

    Seriously? One of the funniest things I have read all day. Thanks for the laugh!

    Y’know, Chris, some of us have known for years that the Greenwich Dumb-as-a-Post wasn’t even worthy of lining the bottom of a birdcage (except for your column, of course), but it’s just astounding to read that a dead-in-the-water condo project is “making a splash?!”

    Yo Chris, what’s going on? I think we should all pool our money together and buy the trash that they call a newspaper. I can’t believe that pretty soon this newspaper is going to be the ONLY “local” news media in Greenwich. As soon as I get this trash I immediately put it in my recycle

    I did not read the article. Is this the Antares project or the one of the 2 brothers who had met so much local resistance?

    to anonymous, this is the project of the two young brothers with so much resistance.
