The daily amenities one could imagine are all minimally distanced from one another and the diverse communities are all bounded together. There are wonderful block events like yard sales and food sales that happen every so often that bring everyone together!

Norwalk is an amazing city to live in if you want it to be. They offer so many opportunites and free events for people of all ages so that everybody can enjoy being a part of their community. I have volunteered for the city and have met many great people my age and adults as well. Most city officials I have met are super friendly and helpful if you have any questions. There is still a lot of things that can be improved however, such as the amount of garbage found along the streets, the graffiti found in certain areas of the town, and the lack of an overall sense of community. As a current resident of Norwalk, I hope that by volunteering for the city, I will help spread the joy and pride I feel for my city.
Norwalk is a pretty great city, their is a few bad elements around the town but that isn’t really a big deal. Norwalk has a lot of diversity, there is better air quality, the environment is a lot better as well as family friendly, yes Norwalk is a great place to raise your family. I currently live in Norwalk and it is very safe where I live there is almost little to no crime. The public schooling system is great, everything is great In Norwalk.
