City of Norwalk

Community Profile of:

The highly diverse city of Norwalk is an exciting blend of lovely residential neighborhoods, thriving commercial and industrial enterprises and exciting cultural and artistic activity. Panoramic rivers and Long Island Sound are part of Norwalk’s appeal as a desirable place to live, work and play.

Luxurious seaside homes grace the coast at Wilson Point, historic restorations sit along the banks of the rivers and fine traditional and contemporary houses make up the neighborhoods of East Norwalk and West Norwalk, Rowayton, Cranbury and Silvermine. Spacious apartments and condominiums also are available.

Home to the largest yachting marina in New England, Norwalk enjoys a rich selection of aquatic activities, including the annual boat shows and waterfront festivals. Excellent town parks and an active recreation department offer a wide range of leisure and sporting events.

A solid public school system further enhances the quality of life in Norwalk. Enriching learning opportunities abound at the 1800s-era Lockwood-Mathews Mansion and the Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk, which has shark and seal tanks, an IMAX theater and the Maritime Magnet School.

Commercial and cultural establishments are plentiful in town, particularly in the revitalized South Norwalk Seaport district (SoNo). Nostalgic 19th century buildings house galleries, restaurants and shops. The renowned SoNo Art Show takes place mid-summer at the seaport. Additional points of interest include the Norwalk Museum, which features impressive collections of period art and Americana, the Silvermine Guild Arts Center and the Stepping Stones Museum for Children. The Norwalk Symphony performs throughout the year.
