The population was 1,365 at the 2000 census. Since 1878 the town has been named for a landowner, John Greig. Prior to that it bore the name, Brantingham, derived from the name used by the indigenous Indian tribes. Its use survives for a hamlet within the boundaries of the town, as a postal identity, and for the lake to the east of the town. The town is in the southeastern part of the county and is north of Utica.

A town government was formed in 1828 as the Town of Brantingham, separating it from land delineated as a portion of the Town of Watson. In 1832, the name of the town was changed to Greig in honor of a landowner. A southern portion of the town was used to form the Town of Lyonsdale in 1873, reducing the size of Greig to its current boundaries. Geography According to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 94.3 square miles (244.3 km²), of which, 92.9 square miles (240.6 km²) of it is land and 1.4 square miles (3.7 km²) of it (1.51%) is water. The eastern town line is the border of Herkimer County, and the western town line is defined by the Black River. The eastern half of the town is inside the Adirondack Park. It is the largest park in the contiguous United States (6.1 million acres), the largest National Historic Landmark, and the largest area protected by any U. S. state. The impetus to protect the land began in 1870 and by 1885, legislation had been passed to protect the land. The park was established in 1892. The park was given state constitutional protection in 1894, so that the state-owned lands within its bounds would be protected forever (forever wild). The part of the Adirondack State Park under government control is referred to as the Adirondack Forest Preserve, which became a National Historic Landmark in 1963.

Brantingham Lake Located east of the hamlet Brantingham, Brantingham Lake is a mid-sized body of water which has become a popular vacation spot with locals and tourists to the Adirondack Park. Many camps were built along the lake that have become year-round residences. Islands and Depths: Brantingham Lake has two islands, Grant, or Round Island, and Dark Island. The deepest part of Brantingham was found to be 85 feet (26 m), with an average depth of 45 feet (14 m). There are two distinct sand bars in the lake, each one marked by buoys that run the length of the bar. There is one submerged dirt road which stems off of Dark Island and connects to the mainland, which can still be seen. Lily Ponds: There are four lily ponds accessible on Brantingham Lake, three of which are accessible by boating under a bridge on the southwestern side of the lake. The forth is located in a small inlet on the northeastern side. Taps: In the early 1990s, the sound of TAPS, (the military muiscal piece), started echoing over the lake at sunset. Since then, especially during the summer months, trumpets and a lone trombone player sound TAPS and return the call to each other.
