Norwalk is such a beautiful down, both physically, and metaphorically speaking. It's as if you see the same familiar face every now and again, which is nice, comforting. On the not so bright side of things, Norwalk is a very drug filled town. I would love to see a change in this done quickly. If our community were to come together, and fight this epidemic, we could stop this in it's tracks before it gets too bad. Despite the drug problem, I can not complain much about the good town of Norwalk.

I have lived in Norwalk for 16 years of my life. It is very mundane, but a nice place for a family I suppose. Drug epidemic are huge. Incredibly significant to our community unless you like to stay blinded like majority of the conservative side of the town.
Norwalk is a typical small American town. There are plenty of things to do, but you will need to drive to Cleveland if you want nightlife. It is a great place to raise a family!
