Posted Jan 12, 2023
Located at the intersection of Interstate 91 and the famous Mohawk Trail, Greenfield is a hub of commerce and culture. Our 18,000 residents live between the Connecticut River and the Berkshire foothills.
Greenfield is known for its picturesque and vibrant downtown. Visitors to our quintessential American Main Street can enjoy dining, shopping, entertainment, history, architecture, and recreation by simply taking a stroll. Greenfield also has a rich Arts and Culture scene with a variety of venues for Music, Performance Art and more. The rest of town is a mix of farms, modern industry, and quiet residential neighborhoods. Educational institutions include innovative public schools, distinguished private schools, and a college.
As a growing city, Greenfield has been chosen for tens of millions of dollars in new private and public investment. The Bank Row Urban Renewal Zone has turned historic downtown buildings into new storefronts and loft apartments. New infrastructure includes a regional transit center and Amtrak service along the Burlington-New York-Washington corridor.
