I have never regretted living in Norwood. I have grown up here and would not have chosen anywhere else in the world. I will admit, at times, I was frustrated with the public school system and the occasionally boring nightlife but those were just minor bumps in the road. The people are friendly and the neighborhood is safe. I have never had a serious incident. I've lived in three different houses in this town and have enjoyed all of them.

Norwood is a wonderful family town and very safe. The school system is excellent and it is an easy commute to NYC. You get a lot more for your money than some of the other surrounding towns.
It is very beautiful and the people are friendly.
