by Karen Jewell, The historic community of Greenwich is nestled along Connecticut's famed Gold Coast. The shores and waves of Long Island Sound draw people to its unique seaside, which also maintains a peaceful residents only beach. In this coastal community, the opportunities for businesses were plentiful, from the exporting of oysters to the Palmer Engine Company, which supplied engines for every lifeboat during World War II. This pristine waterfront is home to historic Tod's Point and has a plethora of elite yacht clubs dotting the shoreline. Author Karen Jewell chronicles the lives of distinguished citizens and the memories of yesteryear in her latest coastal narrative detailing the Greenwich waterfront.
