About Us

Welcome to Greenwich Free Press, your source for a variety of hyper-local online news seven days a week.

Since launching in April 2014, GFP has grown steadily, becoming a force in independent news coverage.

We publish exclusively online. Our circulation is measured in impressions (page views) and unique visitors.

Google Analytics tells us how many people are on the site and what they are reading in real time, which gives us a good idea of what they are interested in and what they are not interested in.

As of March 17, 2017  Greenwich Free Press reached 275,000 page views a month (last 30 days), with 65,000 unique visitors, all through original content. At GFP we almost never aggregate from other news sources.


We offer a free newsletter subscription option for daily 6:00am email delivery. To sign up for the daily newsletter, just click here (there is also a subscribe field on the home page). You can also view past issues here. 

Other readers follow our news “in-the-moment” via their Facebook feeds or on Twitter.

Our goal is to report in the most timely manner, typically with same-day coverage. Each day we pledge a mix of hard news, coverage of local government, slice-of-life surprises and human interest pieces. Our property transfers are updated twice a week.

And while we can’t cover all the news, we promise coverage you won’t find elsewhere. We are often the only source of reporting for Planning & Zoning, Architectural Review Committee, Zoning Board of Appeals and Parks & Rec meetings.

Everything on the site—our articles, events, photos and  videos—are 100% created by our team, and native to GreenwichFreePress.com That is something we have learned to preserve.
