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.

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!
This area of Norwalk is becoming too dangerous. There were murders only a couple of streets away. Parents aren't watching their kids here anymore. Everyone is interested in your secrets and what's happening in your life. I would definitely prefer to live somewhere else in Norwalk. Overall, the only good thing about this location is that it is super close to many restaurants and Wal-Mart. Also, Sandusky is only about twenty minutes from my house. The landlord is also very kind and understanding. This area is below the acceptable line compared to everywhere else in the country. I see the future of this area becoming a possible crime scene.
