About Us

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

We publish exclusively online, which is increasingly how people access news.

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 readers are interested in.

As of mid November, 2018  Greenwich Free Press averages about 400,000+ page views a month, with about 40,000-60,000 unique visitors a month.

Getting our News: Newsletter, Facebook, Google Alerts and Searches

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

Other readers follow GFP news “in-the-moment” via Twitter or in the Facebook news feed.

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 offer 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.

Two years ago our intern Kai Sherwin created a team who review local restaurants.So far they have reviewed Garden Catering and Joey B’s. Their next visit is Fleishers.

Since then the GHS class of 2018 interns resumed the role of critics and we plan to continue the tradition.

All Greenwich. All the Time.
And readers won’t find stories about other towns or cities either.
